Sorry, damn iPad, I meant to say stiff, it's quite stiff, hard to rotate the rod by hand... Crank IS centered in the cases within probably a millimetre or so,

You have something wrong, it should spin freely

But what? The crank is centered (unless it has to be centered within a couple thousandths) and I didn't put the cases together, a local mechanic who has a fair bit of experience with dirt bike engines did it... Bikes a 2005 YZ125

But piggybacking off someone else's thread success is so much better!!!

Why where the cases split, crank bearings or what? Is it in gear? Lol

The faulty shift stopper broke and took out a couple bearings, push rod and got mashed up in the gears..

All case bearings, and broken parts replaced, parts got meticulously cleaned by me in about 3 Varsol baths..

      Newly single, and am finding that everyone to hang out with is either married with kids - no free time, - or not interested in the same stuff. 
      I really would like to get out for some throttle therapy with people who are single track types and can have a beer or two. Maybe even single! Ha.
      I work in Susanville CA, but live in Cedar City, UT. I'm gone a lot of the time, but if someone's already riding and I can tag along that's ideal.
      Arizona, NM, Utah, Nevada, and NorCal are all places I'm willing to travel. I'm self sufficient so I don't need a babysitter, just some bros/broettes to ride with.  
      My skill level would probably rate as intermediate, though its been over a year since I got some good roost time in. I've never ridden tracks really, but I'd be interested in trying.
