    2001 xlt 1200 crank

    i am looking for a crank and need it fast, i was interested if any ony knew any thing about the sbt cranks good or bad, i saw that they were cheap and did not know if any problems have come up with them.

    slow blow technology

    i think their parts are not worth it i have had a ski that had 3 different motors in it and none of them lasted more than 4 hrs the last one they won't repliy to my emails and the last one only lasted not even 15 minutes and i said the hell with them pay for a motor and they wont even stand behind there work witch all three motors have failed so check this out i pull the motor out (which i'm a pro at now )under 15 minutes. find huge hole in the cases and i pull the heads off and find two of the pistons in backwards and one broken rod whats up with that so thats my 2 cents on what i think of SBT i would not recommend them have your crank rebuilt by someone who knows what there doing and build the motor your self just make sure you do a vacuum test and a leak down test and a proper break in and you should be good to go get what you pay for if you think a cheap crank is going to last

    welcome to the forum

    I would personally stay away from the 66V SBT cranks.

    I would order a new crank from RIVA or crankworks.

    Maybe someone will chime in on a good used crank for sale. These pop up from time to time.

    98 will have the cheapest OEM cranks.

    as others have said, you get what you pay for. given that the crank is the "heart" of your motor, don't cheap out.
