Crankshaft Side Clearance Inspection

Measure the crankshaft side clearance.
Install the lower crankcase half on the upper crankcase
half, and turn the crankcase upside down.
Insert a thickness gauge [A] between the upper crankcase
[B] and the crank web [C] at the No. 2 and No.3 journals
to determine clearance.
If the clearance exceeds the service limit, replace the
crankcase halves as set.
The upper crankcase half and lower crankcase half
are machined at the factory in the assembled state,
so they must be replaced as a set.
