    Just wait and get a OEM crank. Hot Rod cranks are not made in America anymore and the quailty just isn't there. If you want to ride instead of wrenching and spending money....don't do it....OEM is your best choice.

    a good option is to get www.crankworks.com to rebuild an OEM crank, this way you end up with the same Bearings etc as if it was a new OEM crank
