    2014 Viking repair recommendations

    Hi Everyone, This is my first time posting but have been lurking around here for awhile.

    I have a 2014 Viking that recently was diagnosed with the loose middle drive gear bolts. The bolts came loose and cracked the crank case, discovered via oil leak.

    I have pulled the motor and split the cases. Motorcycle shop welded up the small crack and will begin to put it all back together. All bearings seem to be good.

    It has 500 hours on it but only about 1500 miles, mostly very slow speed lawn spraying, hunting, farm work and occasion trail rides. It has the JBS Sheave, slugged clutch, snorkels and 30 inch zillas.

    Should I replace the crank while I have it split? Hot Rod stroker crank JBS sells is possibly?
    Can I keep the rest all stock, head, exhaust, etc and be worth it?
    If they put the 850 in Viking I would trade it in.

    Any thoughts would be apprieciated.

    Thanks, I spoke to James. I am going to buy the Hot Rod stroker crank from him and he says I can run the rest stock.

    More low end for working and playing.

    Once the 850 comes out, I will look to trade in a couple of years. I luv the room the Viking has for me, my wife and son.

    I like the interior room in the Viking, also. I do expect the 850 engine to be placed in a restyled Viking. When, I'm not sure.

    If you put the stroker in it you may start to think twice about needing the 850. Did you discuss the Viking VI cam with James? with a couple of other mods that would cost you a few hundred $$$ it could save you thousands $$$$. Of course in less you just burning to get another lol.
