    Hot Rods Crankshaft

    My crank is fine but I am still sending it to crankworks to be looked at, new bearings ect..., new rod for the broken one, and trued/welded.

    I am curious though since I am trying to build a strong setup. Is the Hot Rods Crankshaft better?

    I bought my crank from Hot Rods.

    Per the sales guy, they're built to OEM specs and dimensions except they use their own bearings, and rods.

    The rods are thicker and stronger than stock
    The bearings are known for being kickass.

    IMO - $700 well spent.

    (It's not trued and welded but you can do that extra if you want)

    Hot rods better? no because they aren't welded like crank works can do for a fee! it is however a decent crank that in my case had great tolerances on the vee blocks but the HR bearings are probably not as good as oem

    There is not a "Hot Rods" crank for a GPR, only the older 1200. There are however Hot Rods rods for the GPR, which Crank Works is the place to get them. They say that they are an equivelent to the original not nessesarily better, but equal, and less expensive. Cranks Works does do an awesome job with rebuilding GPR cranks with better than stock parts, indexing, truing, and welding,for just a bit less than a new stock crank.

    "Factory assembled and trued to OEM specifications, Hot Rods Cranks will meet or surpass the OEM in performance and durability."

    HOT RODS Cranks for the 1200/1300R ARE available, weve been using them since their introduction.
    they are ALL Brand new
    For someone whos looking for a new crank, IMO definately the way to go over OEM ( cheaper too ) and if you want welding have the HR crank welded by one of the shops.

    Well guys, since there is no benefit from the HR Crank I am going to stick with my stock OEM one since it isn't busted. Thanks for the info.

    Chris, have you compared prices between a rebuild and a HR crank? I wouldnt think there would be enough $$$ difference to justify doing a rebuild. I have only used the HR's on a MX bike. I have been told to only use new OEM for a quality rebuild. JMHO
