CBX1000 crankshaft needed/ Updated --> crank found

Postby piit » Sat May 12, 2012 1:40 pm

Hi,
I am searching the good crankshaft for -79. Only what I want to do is polish the necks.
Anyone know good one?
In ebay is one, any comments?

My experience lately with shipping is, that it has become almost impossible to ship to and from Europe for a decent amount.
Considering the weight of the crankshaft, you would be better off trying to find one in Europe than in the U.S.

And, btw, the crankshafts are the same for all models. No difference betwen 79 and 82. Original part-no13300-422-000
To be understood is the exception

Thanks EMS :-)
Shipping costs is not a problem from US approx 90eur, UK 110eur, other Europe 60-100eur.
The problem is that in Europe we do not have a decent crankshaft available like in US there seems to be several and in decent price.

And the fact is that I need this urgently!

Cheers,
Petri

Hi N., I have been touched with Louis and most probably the crank from him will be my decision. Fair price and fast good communication.
Thanks,
Petri
