Yea I'm not saying it isn't a weak spot it clearly is by the way they drilled it for the oiling through the crank.
thats kinda my point in a roundabout way, i just dont subscribe to an blanket approach that it must all be in EDR's minds.
or that they're the reason Yamaha fvcked this R1 so badly. EDR has its own black eye from years passed and i've heard 'em
all. They were not all '15 / '16 R1's; its also fair to mention they've done a shit-tonne of work on R6's over the years
and they're not snapping crankshafts. It appears to me they're a high volume shop so the odds they would see more
than a few of these should be no surprise, clearly the pictures dont lie and there's something really off on these.
lets put it this way, and yes i'm aware the 'one' you posted was a built motor..
it seems to me there are more 'stock' engines than 'built' with the EXACT same failure.
It may sound weird but my thinking would be "maybe its not such a good idea to try to extract more
power out of this particular engine.
I'd say the odds are stacked against it in the 'reliability department'
I had both mine cryo-treated. We will see how they hold up I guess.
and so we come full circle to what i'm trying to say. You already have one and obviously are not exactly 100% its 'ok'.
to those like me who did not buy one, well lets just say none of us are running out in search of one
