i dont get the last part. i know i can get a hr+3 off ebay for 280 so if u payed 395, was that with a gasket kit

i was thinking u thought the crank came with a bearing like the new OEM crank does, the OEM crank comes with a right side crank bearing, the Hotrods 3mm stroke comes with just the crank, if u was aware of that, my bad

and no it was just a crank for 390,

woodward gets you the parts when you need them! that goes a long way in my book. also i definately would rather pay an extra 10-20 bucks knowing i am forsure getting my stuff.

With the cheaper crank selling for $280 you get Hot Rods plain jane +3 mil stroked crank which in my honest opinion is not worth buying. I have seen a few of these installed and they just didn't last. The other crank +3mil from Hot Rods selling for $395 is the Heavy duty crank and is worth the cash. I have a 04' with the HD HR +3 mil crank in my bike and have not had a single problem yet. I think that you could get away with the cheaper crank if you were to have the piston and crank balanced, but then you will have to pay the extra 200 bucks to have that done and you still won't have the stronger crank. Just thought I would share my 2 cents.

the crank for 280 is a heavvy duty crank. go to ebay . go to atv parts and type in 450r stoker. go down to the additional items in stores and look tell me if the guy is selling a true hd kit.
