Some things that might be of use:
1. Stock '90+ c900 flywheel is 19.6lbs
2. The Eeuroparts flywheel is 16.4lbs
3. My '91+ 9000T lightened flywheel is 13.2lbs
4. My -'89 c900 lightened flywheel is 13.7lbs
#3 was done by a friend and he went bananas on it. I'm not sure much more could be reasonably removed without causing issues (grip or safety). The #4 flywheel was done by a reputable machine shop and was the maximum amount they were willing to remove. ;)
Unfortunately I don't have a stock 9000 or early 900 flywheel to compare against, but they're probably in that 19-20lb range.
FWIW, I can't tell much of a difference between #1 and #2, so eeuro's "lightened flywheel" was a little disappointing from that perspective. Solved a major problem, so I am not upset! But, the difference between 19.4lbs and 13.2lbs is very noticeable. I wish I could keep using that 13.2lb flywheel with my T5 conversion - I miss it!
