Hey guys, My mechanic says my crank rod bearing is bad on my 2013 Husaberg TE 250. I'm browsing http://www.hotrodsproducts.com/ProductInfo.aspx?item_id=5626 and I see this kit that is compatible with 2008 - 2011 KTM 250 EXC BIKE,2008 - 2011 KTM 250 MXC BIKE,2008 - 2014 KTM 250 XC BIKE,2008 - 2014 KTM 250 XC-W BIKE Is that compatible with my bike? Let me know, thanks!
HELP PLEASE!!! I just replaced the crank and main bearings on a 2010 KX250F with a Hot Rods crank and bearings kit. All went well during the rebuild thus far. When I attempt to torque (87inlb) the case bolts the crank starts to tighten up and gets worse at the case gap closes tighter. The bearings are seated all of the way. I've pulled the bearings and re-installed them to make sure that they were seated correctly. Upon inspection i noticed that the Hot Rods crank is wider than the OEM crank by roughly 1 mm. Total length is the same but the actual crank body is a little wider. I can see a very small gap between both sides of the crank and left / right case halves. However, the gap is a little bigger on the right side. The crank does not appear to be rubbing on the case though. See picture below. I can't find what the spec for this gap measurement is in the manual. My guess is that the crank being 1 mm wider than the stock is putting the bearings in a bind when I try to torque the 8mm case bolts. Any help would be appreciated. Not sure where to go from here and could use some advice.
Had my bike tapped out on pavement then she locked right up, held the clutch, came to a stop, loaded her up, top end looks perfect. Trying to find the next best bottom end to OEM standards.. I didn’t expect anything of this kind of nature but here we are and I believe it’s only the bottom bearing on my rod, Hope I can get some suggestions on getting parts and also is there any suggestions for tools (crankcase splitter, flywheel puller, bearing and seal driver) as I’m on my way to Edmonton tomorrow for a break the bank kind of day, any opinions are greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!!
Time for a full rebuild due to my crank failing. I am stuck on what route to take. I am looking at the Wrench Rabbit Engine Rebuild Kit but it has a HotRods Crank. The reviews are so mixed, some say it's as good as OEM, some say it's not that great. I heard they fixed most of the problems they had but I am not sure. Everyone will say OEM is best but I am trying to get a route that is budget friendly.
