Hi Phil,
You can always alter a perch, can be done in several ways so see what you need.
You should have gone for the PZ group buy and we could have modified in ;)

Re: 231 Bridge port lighten and balanced

Pulley will be ok and a clutch pressure plate has a basic balance from new.
You could get the pressure plate dynamicaly balanced on it’s own if you wanted using a balanced flywheel
To answer your question they would be ok but could possibly be improved slightly.
