2.0L XE 16v Ultra Lightweight Steel Crankshaft
2.0L XE 16v Ultra lightweight steel crankshaft with narrow big end journals.
Weight approx: 12.7kg.
The CRK-1 crankshaft was developed by SBD Motorsport many years ago but it is one of the lightest and strongest crankshafts around and we have found it to be ultra-reliable. It has had small developments over the years, which have aided the smooth running of the engine and helped to produce evermore performance. It uses standard width main bearings and narrow journal big ends. The narrow journals on the big ends are perfectly suitable to the rods available for our slipper piston and rod combination. This has narrow bigend journals and is designed for use with rods that have a 23.8mm wide big end. Please see the link below to ROD-VX-2.0XE-149-02S.
You can modify one of our standard width ROD-VX-2.0L-143S con-rods for use with this crankshaft, if required.
The crankshaft is also designed without an internal trigger wheel, this was done for several reasons; it allows the weight of the crankshaft to be significantly reduced, it also means that the internal trigger wheel, which is prone to fatigue issues when used at sustained rpm is removed.
Main bearings: BRG-M1.00-A
Big end bearings: BRG2.00-R
