Don't go second hand route, if you've got to split it, do it proper....even if it takes a little longer.

yep as above. if your mechanically handy and like tinkering pull it all apart and then send the crank for rebuilt as its a fiddly job requiring special tooling and equipment (press, dial indicator, etc).

replace all seals and bearings and assemble. if your time poor and cashed up send the lot out.

Actually , I am more looking for old  used ones to try something . I just need 3 bowels to machine a oil inlet to them .

Yamaha / Re: 1978 YZ80E Rebuild

i didn't have an YZ80E but would have loved one as i had the RM80B and the E engine was very torquey compared to the Peaky RM.
a cool mini being the first white YZ and monoshock.

its a total tear down i reckon. its not worth the risk NOT replacing the big end and mains.
i think you know that anyway but are hoping for the impossible.

it they let loose they you are back in the same boat.

thats a very tidy K you have there.
