    Undersize Rod Bearings

    Why are there not any undersized crankshaft rod bearings. As old as these machines are becoming, I would think there would be a plenty of demand to keep manufacturing supplies.

    Bummer, Have you contacted them? I have a set (rods & mains) in my RXP & so far have lasted 2 seasons. I'd like to see more sizes too..

    Called all over the country. Not in stock. Even called New Zealand. So far no luck. Been that way all winter.
    WSM says "We hope 30 to 60 days..." China's got to get it together...

    Seadoo uses Clevite for their bearings. They probably want to sell you a crank or whole engine instead of grinding the crank and using undersize bearings. You can try SBT, but they are not quality at all and you'll just end up with another spun bearing....I only use OEM bearings in most of my builds.

    Its just a stock ski. Undersized bearing would work fine if I could find them. Not interested in spending the kind of money for a new crank and you dont really know what you would get buying used.
