    sometimes the repair is worth more than a used engine..have someone take it apart and see how bad it is..price used crank or yours fixed,bearings labor ect and then make a choice?

    Maybe a good used engine and have someone pop the head and cams in and sell the left over parts..cases tranny ect..

    Blew like 3 motors in My busa back in the day and parted them out and popped another one in..no big deal now..but now built motors another story,,..

    don't take the risk on another motor. if the crank is tore up send it to marine they can fix it on the cheap($350). new bearings, oil pan baffle, high volume oil pump gear. with all that said its up to you on how you go about it but in my opinion this is the way to go!

    Don't waste your money fixing it. Just buy a good one on ebay, and a new rod and be done with it.. They are on there all day for 300$ i bought several of them. Even if you wanted to fix it will take forever..and probably be more$

    I believe what "knecum" is talking about is the crankshaft. Dont bother fixing it,just get one for ~$300 off ebay and a new connecting rod and be done with it.

    lol.... I only buy cranks off of ebay if it is dirt cheap. I have bought many many gsxr 1000 cranks in the past off of ebay. half the time they show up with damaged journals. I always take them to my crank guy and have them inspected. I never run a crank without having it completly gone through. mic'ed, magnufluxed, straitened, balanced,etc... It is very easy to bend a crank in shiping if not packaged really well. I have literally had cranks show up wraped in a plastic bag, wraped in cardboard, paper, etc... By time you buy a few damaged cranks, pay for shiping, have the cranks fixed, etc.. Or worse yet. And I have had this happen several times on ebay and buying from members on this website. Pay for a good crank, and it shows up with damaged journals. then go through the hassel of shiping it back and trying to get your money back. I have not got my money back several times.
    Then people complain that I want $450 for a gauranteed good, and inspected crank that will be packaged properly.
    I know it is a hassle and can take a long time to get a crank repaired some times. that is why I always have a spare sitting on the shelf ready to go.

    1000s in general are notorious with spinning bearings.. I make sure when buying cranks from ebay, thats its a good seller, i tell them to pack it so if it falls from a building it would be comfy. I also ask them to send pics to me besides the ones on the add.. I don't make it a habbit of buying cranks on ebay only when the customer is on a budget and thats all he can afford. I also inspect them myself with mics, a set of V-blocks and an indicator.. You can tell when a crank had work, its obvious.. I always ask important questions whenever buying anything from Ebay..

    When your changing the crank and rods is it pretty much unbolt the old one and torque the new one down or is the a lot more to it? It may be a dumb question but I don't know the answer

    I hear you on buying misrepresented items on here as it almost seems to happen more times then not or you end up buying stolen $hit that the seller can't sell locally due to people in his area looking for their stolen stuff. As far as buying stuff on eBay, you as a buyer have seller protection on your side and if item was misrepresented in any way you can easily get your money back and have a shipping label sent to you at no cost for return shipping. I had this exact thing happen to me from a member on here trying to pass off a stock 07-08 rear shock with a $7.50 eBay spring on it and trying to be passed off as a "litz" shock with the sticker removed. Was told I would be provided with spec sheet on shock from litz and would put the litz sticker on it no problem, neither of which was true once purchased. I received the stock shock and questioned seller where the spec sheet was and litz sticker was and got the excuse list from him. I contacted litz and first spoke to Steve's brother then Steve himself call me back about this as he doesn't like when people who are supposedly a litz shock vendor selling something that he did not build. He did acknowledge that the person had done business with him a long time ago but nothing recently and gave me ways to identify his shock, none of which this stock shock had. In the end eBay quickly sided with me, the buyer and sent me a shipping label and quickly refunded me my $$$. Seller had a hissy fit, threatened me (a joke as he would barely be a threat to my teenage son) and hardly ever comes on this site anymore. eBay has its good points and bad, just like buying off these forums as you just never know. All I can say is do your research on the seller before throwing away your cash and you are right about people not wanting to pay top dollar for used parts, especially electronics but we all know the alternatives, take a chance or buy new. Sorry for the long,slightly off topic post.

    Well you have to make sure you have the right bearings etc.. If you need a rod i would by a new rod, they only cost 100$ just so you know thats right.. then meause for the right oil clear.So itsnot just bolt on and everything is ok.. You have to know what your doing..

    In a good number of cases, we get cranks in for repair that have had bearings spin and discolor the journal. It will Mic out perfect so we micro polish it and it is fine. It goes back to the customer, no charge if they are Team APE
