WHY? Do you have a first generation crank you want to sell? Or how about a second generation one? Just curious ::)
Hey 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.
A 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
FALICON !!! Tried to order cranks (2) from them. 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.
Thanks for the info. Matt Mcnoll told me about some internet based company where you could buy cranks for a similar price. I lost the paper that I wrote the sight's name on. Matt, Can you post the name of that sight for all to see.Guy
We need a tool and die maker with some extra time on his hands to start making good strong SV cranks. The things are hard to come by.
Dang! I hate electronic communication, anyway I just got around to reading this thread, the place I got my crank is Ron Ayers Motorsports. It was $512. or something close to that with the shipping. It took about ten days to get it and it came with the entire range of shims to adjust endplay. I honestly think it beats the daylights out of gambling $2-300 on a used one of uncertain quality.Matt
Agreed. But, do you have a used one you want to get ride of? I've spun rod bearings on 2 cranks and was able to salvage both. We used the next smaller babbet bearing. The cranks were not scored badly at all. Clean them up and put the motor back together.
I must have gotten lucky on the race bike then. She's holding strong, almost 3 seasons on that bearing replacement. Knock on wood!!!!
I'll be hunting down guy like a hawk in Amatuer lightweight and spank his ass come Autobahn or Blackhawk!
