The problem with the XRs bottom end isn't the rod, Honda had a run of poorly built cranks that caused a failure of the Big end thrust washers. Plenty of SM guys run them much harder than we do. Once the washers start going bad it's a very short time before the bottom end follows. Results are the same though, once it happens the bottom end is toast.
