New crank bearings joy

Recommended Posts

I was going to trade my 2012 Evo 300 for something else as the main bearings were a touch rough, I was accepting a lower value because of them. The virus lockdown meant I had a project - sort it out!


I have now replaced the mains. It’s running much more quiet and smooth. It’s no longer as angry either as I put a 1mm base gasket in. It took six hours and £200 in parts and gaskets. The old bearings spin and spin now out the motor. They are dry and worn badly. 

I’m no factory technician so I now need to see what happens next but it’s had an hours use and is silky smooth and I’m happy. 

I still fancy an Evo factory 125 or Vertigo 200 though....
