Anyone out there know where I can get a crank rod kit for a 2001 KTM 125 SX, KTM is out of them and it's backordered for a couple of months. Thanks:think

Are you needing a new crank or a new rod or both? What happened? We'd like to know why you think the baddest bike in the 125 class is a POS.

The fastest bike in the world won't do you any good when you can't get parts for them. The rod bearing burned up don't know why, but if this was a Jap bike I'd be back on the track long ago. The lesson here is stick with the big 4 or take your chances on parts.:think

Is it just the bearing that is toast? Why dont you just take it to a machine shop and get a new bearing pressed on the old crank. Most GOOD shops will reweld and balance your crank no problem. I had a bearing go on my sleds crank and the dealer wanted $1500 for a new crank. Pressed on a new bearing for $400 installed back in sled.

That's what I'm thinking about, the rod has heat scores on it, don't know if that matters. Just won't to get it running to sell to another sucker:eek:
