GL1200 - GL1500 Crank Journal Bearings Comparison

Post by Rednaxs60 »

Looking for information on 1200/1500 crank journal sizes for comparison. Have one thread on this forum: viewtopic.php?t=30034 Doing a comparison for future reference and possible work. Apparently the crank main bearings are no longer available, and only the "brown" con rod bearings are available.

Have started a spreadsheet comparing 1500 to 1200 crank main bearings and con rod bearings.
