Should there be play in the connecting rod

Recommended Posts

My buddies 2000 kx125 has alittle play in the connecting rod (Left to right) and i was wondering if this is normal or if its time to replace the main bearings, never herd any abnormal nosies from the motor.

thanks,

mike

There will be a little play side to side. Make sure to check for play up and down. If you have play there you have a problem.

whatsup i have the same bike 2000 kx125 bike ran dry of coolant and shut down bottom end didn't even seize but took it to the dealer and they claim it had too much side to side play and although i had no up and down play they said i needed to replace the entire crank and main bearings....definetly your call but i have decided to do mine and currently have 400 in parts sitting in my basement rite now waiting to be installed....if you decide to get the crank use www.midwestactioncycle.com cheapest oem cranks since hotrods doesn't make a complete crank for that bike......
