    what brand crankshaft to use ? 1100 raider

    I'm looking at sbt, wsm, hotrods and used oem.

    Hot rods is looking like the winner so far but after talking with sbt and wsm I'm also starting to reconsider the money to part issue... seems they are solidly rebuilt and offer good warranty.

    All the posts ive found on the net are form like 5-10 years old. Everyone bashes them and says not to use. Anyone have any experience with the products of these companies now?

    Im starting to shy away from used oem cus theres no warranty and price is soooooo close to a refurb wsm or sbt its not worth risking it. Also hotrods are expensive as [email protected] what to do?

    I build a lot of motors here in house, and I use rebuilt oem cranks. Crankworks does all my work, including true and weld.

    Since I have gone this route, I have had virtually zero crank problems.

    I have them rebuilt. Like a motor comes in and it has 1 rod bad and bearings bad, I sent it off and have them fix it up.

    To the OP do it, new OEM or rebuilt OEM that's your only "real" options. On top of that you will save a lot of time not having to deal with the shipping/rebuild, but then again if your in the north you have all winter.

    As south as you can get... miami. Pwc weather year round. Oem new is to expensive. Hotrods are the only choice for new.. but also expensive..reason for asking about the other 2 choices...

    Fixed, thanks for pointing it out.
    But the question was "in general" , not specific to any crank.

    Here's some good feedback on an SBT crank.
