    You can't get WSM pistons for a 900. I went through that last year. Your choices are OEM,Wiseco, or SBT. I went with OEM. If you need more than .5mm over then OEM is out. If your crank bearings spin freely with no noise and there is no excessive play in the rods, the crank is ok. The only real way to check out a crank is to remove it from the engine. I had a crank I thought was good, but when I pulled it out, I found 6 of the 8 bearings were noisy and needed to be replaced.

    i just checked the crank and every bearing made a noise when it spun so its bad. of course!!!!! so does any one know were i can get one i am not going to rebuild it because i jut finishe my sltx build and the crank cost me 600 to rebuild i spent a total of 1300 on that ki alone on this ski my limit is 800 so i need a used one.

    has anyone else ever heard this one
    i just got my sl900 96 for 300 and when he gave me the tilte i checked the vin number and the cf numbers which both matched but on the title it says year built 2000 and year sold 2001 how is that posible when the last two numbers on the vin are 96

    We have brand new cylinders that have never been run with new domes and new std o.e.m. pistons and rings with pins. Engine was used for training purposes. Cylinders have a fresh very light hone on them and pistons had some small scuffs that rubbed right out. Only thing you would need to buy would be circlips.

    300.00 for all 3 cylinders/pistons/domes and you send your old ones in.
