I'm replacing my crankshaft in my 1100 stx di motor. Can I reuse the small end bearing and wrist pin? I only have about an hour or two on the engine.Im also installing new OEM pistons as well.

As long as there are no signs of wear, it is fine to reuse pins and bearings. But you should install the pin and bearing into the rod and spin it to make sure it rotates freely, especially if you are doing a crank due to hydrolock. Pistons are OK as well as long as the piston to cylinder clearance is within spec. Don't reuse circlips if they have been removed, if you only took one out to get the pistons off, it's OK to leave the the one in the piston.
