    So far, all the Hotrods cranks ive got are great. Some people have had problems. From day 1, these cranks in general have been a problem.

    How about a little more info? Where did it break? Right after the snout? What mods on the ski, and how do you ride it?

    If you need a new crank I'll sell you mine, and have it shipped to you next day.

    The cranks are known for snapping right after the snout, and lots of WOT wave jumping only makes the problem worse. Time for a rebuild.

    Sure, you can rebuild one with a new snout. Been done many, many times. Call Crankworks and then enjoy the next three months waiting for it to come back to you. Unfortunately they're the only game in town.
