1w4 con rod
« on: April 09, 2012, 07:22:46 AM »
I'm after a new rod is it right that the Prox rod for the 5X5 (250) does the job is stronger than the original?

Good day Dan can't advise on strength but if you have trouble finding a rod i sourced a kit from a company in the US ........if you need details I think their card is in my draw. Ended up delivered pistonkit rodkit crankbearings seals about 2/3 of what I would have paid here in Aus.
