Cool, thanks.
So will I be able to get a replacement bearing for the balancer or do I buy a complete new unit?

you can't buy the balancer unit, you can't even buy a 2008 balancer complete. they're finished. luckily, we do a pair of balancer bearings. we get them made.

cheers

So after a quick test it seems my crank is a bit spread. It measures 60.2mm at the big end and 60.7mm on the other side.
This is however me measuring with my vernier, and not a micrometer, so it might be slightly off.
On the dial indicator it out by about .25mm.

So now I'm wandering, is this because of the bearing it ran or did it run the bearing because of this?

I'm so glad you think of all the answers yourself but then give me the question again!

the crank didn't twist on its own. it was installed like that. it is not true. to prove it, hold it by the little end and walk it across the kitchen top like you are taking 'fifi' for a walk.

I would like a photo of you doing it of course!

the crank will wobble like a man walking with a bad hip.

roller bearing cranks MUST be perfect.

the only get out clause for the tosser who did the job is that the crank had come apart that many times that it took under 12 tons to press it together. again, a good crank man will know.

regards

Cool, thanks, that's what I thought.
My crank is not twisted, its spread.
If it was twisted, it would have measured variances 90deg with the big end, not so?

well there are three 'not trues'
one forwards (obviously one is 'back')
spread out or spread in.

best thing to do is put a set square from carpentry or perhaps you have one in the workshop across the flat face of the flywheels at 9 or 3 o clock when holding it by the little end. it cannot lay across both flywheels if it has a 'foot forwards'.

you can also have both at the same time.

either way, the inside face of your rod will have taken a hiding.

If your little end bush is worn which they usually are; i'd split it, get a new little end bush fitted and and then put it back together having checked the ID of the rod's big end for wear and then I'd either go
rod kit
or
pin and bearing
or
bearing

along with that little end bush.

poor job....

Thanks from charlvdw

I was lucky enough to find a good balancer.
Decided to go with FAG mains and made some progress over the weekend.

Started yesterday, but the jetting is a bit of a sh!tshow.
The idle air jet which according to the manual should be a 100 is actually a 60. So i guess i'll have to spent a bit more time on the jetting going forward.
But going to sort out the wiring first and get all the electronics working.
