I've discovered many specialists on this forum who provide niche services for these bikes that can be difficult or impossible to locate in the "general population". Are there any forum members in the US that offer crankshaft service for these and other two stroke engines?

They do it for most of the dealers in the country.... and not just Yamahas

Thank you Deet. The response is appreciated.
On another topic, I have an oil injection pump that I'd like to have the output rate verified before it goes on a fresh build. It has new seals that were sourced from you and has been in use for about a year. Is this a service you provide?

This string was accidentally started in a low relevance topic. If I knew how to move it I would! My apologies.

+1 on Bill Bune Enterprises. Easy to work with, quality work, reasonably priced and turnaround time is relatively short.

I've had a couple of crankshafts done by "MrCrankshaft.com". Very quick service from Vince... he even had a good core in stock the last time and sold me a complete rebuilt DT175 crank with the good slotted rod for about what shipping my core to him would have cost. Crank looked brand new... I could not measure any runout at all and the engine runs extremely smooth and vibration free up to 10k+ RPM.

I've heard nothing but good about Bill Bune as well. :likey

thought if you lived near me, a local retired machinist and race bike mechanic does all my machine work, very reasonable.

Thanks for the offer Mark. I think I've seen your mention of him in one of the forum threads. That's a great resource to have when one tears into one of these bikes.
