    Well Broken Crank It Is :(

    Just pulled the front cover off and it snapped right at the flywheel. Any idea's on where to go from here so this does not happen again? Just a recap this is on an 01 GPR 1200 with a 1390 BB.

    Damn that sucks Brian. I think they make afront bearing support if you do alot of rough water riding.
    When getting a rebuilt crank you don't know if that piece has been replaced. Another reason I only by new OEM Yamaha. Crankworks probably does but they are about the same as new.

    Yeah another member recommended Crankworks. I've also heard to get rid of the flywheel and get a RAD. I'd rather spend the extra money up front than have to go through this 2 or 3 more times like some other guys have. Thanks again for the help and keep the idea's coming if you have them!

    sorry to hear your bad luck,i cant vouch for crankworks work as the new cranks has not been fitted.
    but i can say how nice they are and how easy i was to get one made and sent to me in the uk,even after a problem we had,
    painless all the way and kevin at crankworks was cool about the whole thing and did a stand up job..

    How long did it take? I saw on their site they do it for $200. Probably better off just having them redo the whole thing while it's out.

    If it snaps the crank then change the flywheel. Most of the time when it snaps the crank, it SLIGHTLY damages the pickup magnets on the wheel, which can cause erratic performance.

    Plus, it is probably going to snap again with the same flywheel.
