Thanks for all the help guys, I think I'm gonna stick with the stock stroke for now and bore it 40 thou over. later on if I want to go faster I can turbo it maybe tongue sticking out smiley haha. I like the 6000 redline and the sporty lively feeling of it so the 1700 might not be for me

Oli,
If you think the 1500 is lively don't ever drive a small crank 1296. A 1500 will never satisfy you again.
All the best,
Paul

Hey Hap, how much to grind a crank like that and is there any way to lighten/knife edge it to loose some weight?

Three different 3 main bearing crankshafts:

Spitfire 1147 crankshaft:

Spitfire 1500 crankshaft:

Coventry Climax crankshaft:

Note the differences in the segments connecting conrod journals 1-2 and 3-4.
The Climax crank is likely the lightest and best performing of the three.
