Knife-edge & lighten Hayabusa crankshaft retaining balancer.
The crankshaft will be knife edged, the counter weights lightened and
re-balanced to compliment your pistons & rods. We will require these,
along with your generator when machining the crank to enable the counterbalances
on the crankshaft to match your pistons & rods.
you are using our new slipper pistons and rods, the new weight of the
crankshaft will be approx 10.92Kg compared to 11.35Kg of the standard
crank - this may not seem a huge weight saving but many people take this
machining process too far thus causing problems. The knife edged crank
will give ultra smooth and rapid engine acceleration, the balancer shaft
has been retained to further aid the smoothness of the engine which is
a highly desirable characteristic on a high revving engine of this type.
It should be remembered that if Suzuki could have designed the engine
to run without the balancer shaft without any negative effects, they would
