Quote from: L8brake731 on July 25, 2006, 05:36:51 PMHey Guy-From what I understand, the first generation crank is better. Better, meaning that there aren't as many issues as with the second generation cranks. I've heard of some builders who have used first gen. cranks in the FI motors but had to have some minor machine work done to facilitate using a shim for thrust clearance.
Quote from: grasshopper on August 02, 2006, 05:02:27 PMA brand spankin new crank is 500 bucks. You can justify that with comparing to a set of tires. 200 bucks more than tires. Or you can justify that with a price of a new helmet, a new helmet can cost more than a crank. Skip a weekend of racing and buy a new crank if you need one. Part Number: 12000-20840 Description: CRANKSHAFT SET Source: SUZUKI Price: $498.11

Lot's of BLAH BLAH about the lead time involved. 6-8 weeks, OK, that will work. 6-8 weeks later; where's my cranks? "Well, we don't do our own heat treating, the people who did the treating, warped both cranks" "we have to start over and machine new ones" This is all said a week before week 8. This means 6-8 more weeks? I don't think they are the only game in town, we'll see.
