So im doing my rebuild on my bike and i took off the timing chain and the gear on the crankshaft for the chain is worn abit. Its not bad. I seen worse just some teeth are skinnier then other. Will try to get into the garage and take a picture for you guys but everything els on the crankshaft is fine there is no up or down play on the con rod, abit of side to side which is good. There also no play what so ever when moving trying to move the flywheel. So question is should i just leave the crankshaft in and ride it for another season or put a new one in?
