    SBT cranks, OK or run away

    OK, my 94 SL 750 needs a crank since the previous owner didn't fog it and it sat unused for a "few" years. One connector rod has a slight catch and a couple center bearings are real noisy.

    I see where SBT has a swap for $275 + shipping. I've done a Google search and only see a couple negatives. Are they any good or all crap, run away? I know it all "starts" with a good crank. Is it just crap shoot with SBT. I hate to drop $500+ on a crank!

    I have an old core in a pile of parts I picked up, would they take it as a core?

    Not sure how good SBT cranks are. Not sure if they'd take that core of yours either.

    I DO know guys like/use Midwest alot. ^^^^^^^

    $375 for a new rebuilt crank shipped is a pretty good price. I have personally seen new cranks from SBT and they look and felt great, and were within run-out specs.
    IMO save some money and give SBT a shot and see how it works for you. My family rebuilds their own cranks but if that was not the case, I would not hesitate to buy a SBT crank. Take care of your equipment and it will take care of you. Preventative maintenence goes a long way. You could have a $1,000 crank and if you don't take care of it , it will fail.

    I see no problem with a SBT crank i've talked to a few guys who bought them and have had no problem with them .
    Jeff at Midwest is probrably very busy right now with the snowmobile season going on . He's done a few for me and they turned out GREAT so if you can wait he's the best choice .
