Almost all 1998 SRX's had bad cranks, but 99% of them were fixed. I have a 98 SRX 700 that is studded with no problems. My buddy also has a 98 SRX 600 that is studded with no problems as well.srx_600 said:They were known to have crank issues, check to see if they had the update, what year is it? 98 or 99?
Studding a track should not take the crank out.
