97 rm125 crank assy

Recommended Posts

The few places I've tried to order a complete crank assy from say unavailable. Anyone know of a place of ordering a complete assy or does the old one have to be rebuilt! It's beat up pretty bad, probably salvageable but bad.

That's one of them odd years they don't offer them . Have to find a rod kit have it rebuilt.  Just make sure the thrust washers are not chewed off one side. if so that half is no good. 97 was a good one tho :thumbsup: where you been hiding anyway? Lol

Thrust washers we're both there! Just dropped it off an HR ago, hour labor plus parts and back together it goes. Hoping manual gets here soon, when I pulled trans I had washers and gears everywhere, lol, not a yz 250 for sure!

You should have seen this crank, when I pulled cases my first thought was wtf! Metal every where! Piston skirt pretty much gone, not a single rod bearing left, not one! I believe they put nitrous to it, not only because of the damage but a 1/4" hole drilled just in front of reeds that was filled with my favorite ( jb weld). Guy at bike shop agreed it was the worst he ever seen:facepalm::lol:

Lol oh I've seen some beauties.  Hopefully you got it cheap. I raced one of them back then .  Bike shop messed up my parts so let me borrow one off floor was a trade in. Really liked it almost bought it but was a Kawasaki guy then.

$300 for a complete bike is good in my book. I'll have probably $900 total in it when finished but it'll be new, kinda! I'm sure after 6-10 rides son will be on a 250 and off I go again:thumbsdn: they grow so damn fast! Need to invent a jb weld tester around here😂

I understand! We're pretty safe around here as far as that goes as of recent(10 years), it's on soon, son usually over in a day or two and willing to go til I say stop, enough already, lol. I'm one of those picky bastards! Or I'll try again next year for the monster
