    crank shaft question

    So I have hit the very core of my sl900 and am ready to rebuild it, however I was checking my crank shaft and it looks like some of the bearings are going. I have reached that stage where I don't want to sell it anymore because I cant help replacing anything that I know will fail later on haha. What is involved in rebuilding and balancing the crank? Is it strongly recommended that the connecting rods be replaced as well? I would far rather just buy a low hour crank off one of the forum members instead of an sbt rebuild.

    Any ideas?

    p.s drove 22 hours in one day to shibbys on long island, just want to say that he is a great guy. I am a student, so me buying 2 jet skis is a questionable move at best lol, but he sold me an slx that will last, so that I can sink the rest of my money into the 900.

    This is just my opinion, and I am sure others on here will argrue, but I would not use a SBT crank. There are other places that can rebuild it and do a better job. I think Sharps will do it for around $600, and that will include new rods.

    Glad to hear about the new ride! Hope you get the 900 running soon.
