I recently sunk my 09 KTM 125 sx, with a 04 200 SX engine, The crank bearing seized later that night,they had grit in them bad, and it ruined the piston. I soaked the entire crankcase with oil to save the crank, and it seems to be good, but anyway, Im having some struggles finding a shop manual for the 200 SX Engine rebuild it, as well as finding new reed that will fit it. Any help?
I have a 2003 Honda CR250. I am putting a new Hot Rods bottom end in it (Wiseco b.e. shit the bed). I am putting it all back together and I notice that there is no collar between the final drive gear on the crank and the bearings (final drive, primary drive whatever) and I am wondering Why?
I have the book for this guy and it says when assembling this section it says to "place the collar (if equipped), then gear, then thrust washer and bolt in that order". When looking at the hot rods bearing, it is not sealed. So to me, no way that oil from transmission doesn't get in to bottom end if there is no collar there. I ordered a collar. But I am not so sure I did the right thing.
So... is it necessary to have a collar on this install? Or did they leave them out? OR did the previous owner forget to put one in there when rebuilding bottom end?
