    Who Can Balance and Lighten a Crank?

    Someone (maybe Shibby) posted up a shop that could lighten cranks, CB Shafts and balance as a rotating assembly.

    Anyone know who that is?

    Anyone had it done and think it was worth the hassle?

    Be careful...every time someone get's into the lighten crank and stuff things go boom.

    I've heard people having problems with the math between the crank and balance shaft. Seems too easy to screw something up.

    You know I learn slow but not really slow.

    You don't have to tell me twice.

    It is a lot easier to leave it alone.

    And cheaper too

    I see many guys "over build" their bottom ends and they always go "boom"

    I have had great luck with the stock bottom end. Never had a problem and you guys know i run the crap out of my skis

    The stock bottom end holds up at 9000rpm, I think it'll do

    The bottom end is built like a tank. You have to try to tear it up, rods and mains have excess brg surface and the rods are STRONG. The biggest problem I see with the motor is the lenght of the skirts...they could be a tad longer.
