    Question Spun balance shaft bearing 2008 RXP-X

    My 2008 RXP-X stopped suddenly at while running at slow speed (around 3500 - 4000) and teardown revealed that the balance shaft bearing was done.
    Is this common ??? I'm concerned about just cleaning it all up and nothing more. Suggestions ???

    I have yet to see this happen. You will have to measure the counter balancer bore and see if its within spec. Most of the time when you spin a bearing, you will damage and distort the bore.

    It just seems to be an odd bearing failure with no other visible damage done.
    What could cause this??
    Anyone??
