Hi, Doing a rebuild of my 2002 CRF450R, and the measured connecting rod (big end) to crank side clearance is a neat .015 in. This measured value has not changed since my last top end rebuild, about 40 odd hours ago. The Honda service manual states the service limit to be .020 in. Does anyone know what the con rod side clearance is on a new/near new crank/con rod assembly ? Is 15 thou to much clearanc ? even though its 5 though under the service limit. All other aspects of crank and conn rod are all well within service limits. thanks, hharry.
