Anyone swaped cranks?:cool:

Ok, I know this has been asked before but i havent seen a clear answer.
Will an 08 Gen 3 Crank drop in an 07 Gen 2 block?

What if anything will need to be changed if in fact this can be done?

Has anyone put the two cranks on a scale to confirm the weight savings?

What if anything did you have to change?

Any advice you can offer would be MUCH appreciated!!!:hello:

it drops right in:wink:, it's the same crank, except it's been knife edged, you'll see it once you'll have both of them side by side

Its a straight swap? Cause a 06 clutch basket, will not work in a 3 gen motor. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong

3rd gen cranks drops in the 2nd gen motor, it works with 2nd gen parts ( basket, clutch gear etc). Look in the picture and you'll see how they saved 2lbs. You can also put 3rd gen head on 2nd gen motor, it worked pretty good on my motor, but I am back running 2nd gen head since I couldn't find a reasonably priced 3rd gen head.


Oh and if you look to the right of the crank, the part that goes on the last main, it didn't have a oiling hole like 2nd gen crank, but I don't think that would cause any problems.
