A dual mass unit can't be resurfaced unless the wearing part of the plate is dissassembled. At least it can't be done with a traditional flywheel resurfacing machine. You may be able to do it on a lathe but you'll have to clamp the friction surface and not the mounting surface. Dual mass flywheels are a POS in my opinion.
