Tip & How-To about 2002 Yamaha XVS 650 Dragstar
If your crankshaft journals are damaged and they want you to buy a new one at a cost of $850. and bearings at $185, Say no. you can fix it. An engineering company can grind the crankshaft down for you at a cost of $42 they can source new replacement bearings from a motor car bearing specification manual which The car bearings will cost only $8. thats a saving of $985. I did this for my XVS 650 Dragstar and it's still running.
