250 SX-F Crank problem?

Recommended Posts

Anyone heard of any crank problems on the 2008 250 SX-F outside of the early rod problems? My bike has been starting to make more engine noise than it should, and vibrating more (to the point I can feel it in my feet). It only has 60 hrs on it, and it has been perfectly maintained. My dealership checked the frame number and it was clear of any service bulletins. Checked the tensioner too and its not that....

Anyone else had to do a crank this early? Any other suggestions?

My dealership said they need a crank every 40-50 hours?

50 hours are about right for a pro rider, but then I have had some with more than 150 hours on some, with guys that don't rev the bike hard a lot.

There where a few 250SX-F here in Australia with the rods braking in the end I believe they recalled or replaced every one under warranty, most of the broken rods where on modified bikes with Pro's.

Wear and how long the crank bearing lasts is dependant on the how hard the bike is revved and the quality and frequency of the oil changes.

More power shortens the life too.... our guys practice bikes are lucky to make 30 hours,
