Lightweight or not has little affect on clutch life. The important factor is what material the flywheel is made of and how abusive to the clutch you are.

Yes it will because the weight of the flywheel acts as a dampener before torsional vibrations get to the clutch. The springs in the disc are the next dampener. The less dampening the flywheel is allowed to do (because it is lighter) the more the disc gets pounded. It affects the wear on springs and center section, not the linings. There is always a tradeoff.

Also, it will decrease the life of the clutch, b/c there is more power that is being transfered through it, assuming that it is a stock clutch. It is just like any mod that you do to your car, be expecting to replace the clutch sooner and sooner the more mods you do.
