Low End Rebuilds

I have a 1999 YZ400 and a 2001 YZ426 does anyone know how long the crank bearings are good for. I read a response in MXA to replace the bearings after this much time.

I don't know what interval an engine builder would recommend, but both of those engines have been known to have rod bearings fail with more or less catastrophic results. It doesn't seem to be a problem, just something that happens occasionally. Search this forum for more info.

Are you talking about the Big End rod bearings or the crank bearings in the case? I'm putting a crank, piston, cylinder and 3 intake valves as we speak due to a failed big end rod bearing.
