Why not just go with 8 16 or 18 gram greaseless weights?

As i have come to learn, weights only vary where upshift happens. Lighter weights means higher revs before upshifting. For more low end or off the line snap u need to either shim or machine primary sheave or a combo of both.

The lighter weights will limit weight travel from reduced centrifugal force so the belt doesn't travel enough to achieve high top speed with the engine running wide open.
Its like using a lighter rock on the end of a string and swinging it around your head. If you can swing it fast enough you can get the string straight out.
