Had a quick look through with the search, but couldn't find any specific names.

Its for my old MZ, but the principles are the same.
The big end bearings gone, due to a combination of being 28 years old, my riding style and we may have pushed the compression up a bit, and a bit more.

I can get a new connecting rod, big end bearing and pin, and little end bearing. Thats the easy bit

Question is where do I send a pressed crank to have it rebuilt properly?
Near Bedfordshire would be preferable but if I have to go for a ride I can do.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Good idea, I'll pick one up tomorow if the snow allows. Until then I'll check the mags I've got.

Though now I've looked into it a bit more it may not be worth it:
Con rod and bearings £35, + rebuild cost + postage there and back
Fully assembled crank £100 brand new ready to go

It's going to be a case of weight up the costs and decide

Check out MCN and Trials and Motocross News, look where the MX lad's get their engines done.

But £100 for a complete new crank assembley is a no brainer for me.:thumbleft::cool:
