Recommendations on Replacement Cranks?
Can anyone provide recommendations on where to find a quality replacement crank. I'm not into racing, just need an OEM quality crank to get me back in the water. I have a 2000 XL 700, with a 701 cc, 62T engine.
I've seen adds for
SBT - $250 (with trade in)
Hot Rods Cranks - $450
But don't know anything about quality of cranks, bearings, etc. I know that mine is shot due to rust in bearings, so it need to be completely rebuilt or replaced.
I don't want to have to pull this apart again!

Well if it isn't performance you are shooting for I would go for the SBT, seems to be the cheapest and it should be ok.

Oem yamaha is hard to beat,better yet if you can find a used one,I would run a used oem,before a rebuilt.The oem front bearing alone is over a 100.00,so that should give you a hint of what you can get for 250.00.The only guy I have ever trusted to rebuild all of my cranks,yamaha included,was wisconsin crankshaft repair,he was mechinist for bombardier for 15 or more yrs. building rotax cranks,and rebuilding them.I dont even know if hes still around.In fact Seadoo is only man.that sells re-built cranks thru there oem parts,must be because 580-650-720 engines ate cranks for breakfast!!JMHO>Marvin
