1 do you have a manual for this bike?

2 as far as the crank and rod go i would have a bike shop inspect it; do you have it out of the case?

Contact Engine Dynamics and ask my guess is about half the cost of new.

Normally, by the time you pay for the labor of having the crank rebuilt, a new one is about the same cost or less.

i was planing on rebuildig the crank myself. if i send the head cyilinder to get fixed does the other cyilinder have to be bored out bigger then and get a bigger piston as well

So, you were either going to buy the fixtures for your 40 ton hydraulic press or make them? How do you intend to align the crank after you press it together?

Yes, that's what I'm saying. Crank alignment requires two dial gauges, and a ball bearing truing stand just to check it. Correcting misalignments is work for a skilled, experienced machinist only.

There's no sense in checking your old connecting rod.....by the time you're in there you might as well replace it....it probably needs it, by looking at the blow-by on your piston.

You shouldn't need any special tools to replace the crank assy. with a new one (your best choice).

Rebuilding the crank is a whole different story....you'll need a rod, bearing, pin, etc and bring it to someone who specializes in rebuilding and truing them.
