What going on guys, 


I'm new to the forum but, i just purchased a used crank off ebay for a 2004 yz450f which i have. To install a crankshaft they normally have to be pressed on the bearing. Or they can be sweated on, however without heating the bearing up or anything the crankshaft slid right on the primary side bearing. It doesnt have any play when i pull on it, is this a bad thing that it just slid on or will it be okay.

It's actually pretty normal.
