Crank bearing change XT 600

Crank bearing change XT 600
I disassembly my piston engine my crank bearing is 2 X KOYO 6307 HS (High Speed) . But I couldnt find same bearring in market. FAG 6307 C3 or FAG 6307 is suitable for me. C3 mean more space in bearring but rpm is higher than other. Which one do i choose?

Thanks in advance

cam's

does anyone has experience with (some type of) camshafts, not standard one's but stage 1, 2, 3?
dynochart, good bad experience.. runs beter, goes faster (slower) more/ less torque.. etc etc..

there is little or no information about this, in Holland there is a discussion which one should be used..

and for what Ive heard, hotcams should be avoided,,, (?)


anyway..

who could help with info,

Thanks,
Patrick

For that type of info Patrick Google "XT600 motard camshaft" its mainly them guys who trick there motors, Adventure riders tend to want reliability from there bikes.

Here`s an example of a TT600 motard using a XT600 frame (google translate) what a weapon.

My understanding is that most of the bearings found in Japanese motorcycle engines are C3 clearance. For a while I was considering going to a bearing supplier for replacement engine/tranny bearings, but I decided to go with Yamaha parts. It's more expensive, but that way I know that what I have is correct.
If I was to use a commercial bearing, my semi-educated opinion would be to use the C3.

I have tried silicone, but it dosent agree with the heat off the engen.

Rescue tape-used it to repair radiator hose on my dodge ram. Forgot to buy a new hose. Still there when I traded it in 5 years later.

I don't recommend going to this trouble. I made a completely straight link and it worked fine. Just measure the distance and use tubing. I then squished the tubing flat on the ends, ground it to remove the corners and drilled the holes. Can post a pic if you want to see, but it is essentially just a straight bar, not sure why they have a bent one.

just a straight pc of tubing same size as the frame with reinforced attachment pads.

bike is in SC right now so no actual measurements available

No redrilling, etc. They have worked out perfectly.

Please share the details, wheel widths and spoke gauges, did Buchanan lace then up for you? Please share

I'll follow in suit... Thx lama
