So I finally got round to splitting the cases on my 04 rappy, I've found a bit of heat marking on the crank and a lot of play on the conection rod, side tonsil and up and down. , I've priced up and bought hot rods new complete crank and rod. Was gunna leave the piston as cylinder looks fine, piston isn't too bad I think.
Now, I got a phone call of the guy and "buy 2 race" (the company I've bought the crank of) and has told me that it could take up to 2 weeks before they get it in stock, but offered me a rectified crank with a new wossner conecting rodn balanced and new bearings, All ready to mount. Also I would also get 150 euro back as a price difference. They charge 250 including the rod which costs 135.
What do you guys think?
Is he trying to pull a fast one or is it a good deal?
Is it OK to get a rectified one Instead of new?
And anything you guys think I should do mandatory while I have it apart besides a new cam chain that I will be putting on?
I would always trust a rebuilt oem crank with new rod over a hotrods crank. They are known to fail in the 700s, haven’t heard much about the smaller bikes in awhile. I would replace the oil pump and do a real good inspection if the transmission while it’s apart.
