These APE crankshafts have won championships in virtually all kinds of racing; road racing, drag racing, three quarter midgets, dwarf cars, mini sprints, etc. Every model crank is different and requires a different style of modification.

The advantage of a lightened crank… Much quicker throttle response, less power wasted trying to turn a heavy crank means more power to the rear wheel. The engine accelerates faster. Harder pull off the corners. Reshaped counterweights move through the oil mist with less drag. Lighter cranks have less gyro effect.

APE CrankshaftsAs all racers know, heavy wheels and brakes spinning fast act like gyroscopes, and resist being moved off their axis, such as leaning the bike over for cornering. Same with the crank. The heavier the spinning crank, the more it resist being tilted when cornering. Light cranks not only make more power, but help improve handling.

APE performs the complete lightening and balancing to the customers crankshaft. Magnaflux to check for cracks, highly recommended on oil cooled GSXR1100+s and FZR1000+s.
