In all the years I've been around I would never replace a crank that did not need it. Don't waste your money unless you have evidence it needs replace. I've had way worse than this mess you have and the crank was fine.

Added reply in a thread yz250 powervalve governor pin keeps ejecting 7/3/2017 6:22 AM

The new roll pin fitted to the shaft makes sense. The shaft would have been my first guess as two pins have been used with the same result. If you had not used another power valve governor with good results I would have also been suspicious of the power ... more »

I don't think it will ever be an issue, the load of the bearing is spread around and supported by the race, the race held in place by the hollowed out frame tube. I'd bet there are hundreds out there that have been cut unknowingly and the owner is not ... more »
