hey spanner n ned that sounds good.
Taffy im sure you get it by now, twistimg the crank webs on the pin is the thing Im on about
ill be round for a tea later.
I 'm always surprised how easy it is to knock a crank out of alignment and Im flabbergasted they stay anywhere near true in the engine.
just putting one down on a bench a little rough with one web hitting the bench before the other is enough to send it out.
a lot of bike shops don't even check crank runout "we can't do anything about it anyway"
no wonder bikes with roller mains are hard to set up ........ 0.2mm runout .... blooday clowns !
BTW the 0.12mm runout spec in the manual comes from the old ball bearing mains days doesn't it ? seems like 0.05 should be a maximum, you can see 0.05 by eye.
