Wow, a new crank is $670. You could get a used crank. One thing to be careful about is heat damage. Check the crank journal for heat damage. If it has heat damage, it will have molecular damage to the metal, and not be as hard as it once was. Such things can be fixed, metal can be rehardened, and the crank journal can actually be welded up and then machined down to the correct size. But for what it would cost, if you could find a shop to work on a motorcycle crank, it would probably be cheaper to buy a new one.
Motorcycle parts prices are insane, I could get a good quality crank for a small block Chevy for half what a Vulcan crank cost, and look at the difference in size.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
