This is next to my MZ 301 2-stroke.

On my R 90/6 with SuperElastik sidecar I have about the same weight in the boot, as far to the outside as possible, mounted with a bolt with a wingnut so I can take it out pretty easy. Just have to make some kind of grip on it so I can pick it easier

I did something similar. I went to the tire store and asked for the lead weights they were throwing away and I then melted them down into an old bread tin(doing this outside) with a propane torch.
