Quick turnaround indeed.

What does a rwisted crank do to the rod bearings, case bearings, oil pump, etc? Were they inspected and/or replaced?

Sounds like shortcuts were taken...

The engine shop I grew up in (dad was a drag team mechanic) would never replace JUST a twisted/bent crank.

Ouch...trying to combine a few links here as you have been talking about the flywheel for some time...but I can’t remember if you said anything about a build sheet. By changing out the flywheels your basically rebuilding the whole motor as a min the mechanic should looked at the pistons, not to mention what cggorman said about the bearings, oil pump etc hope this guy does you right....fixing this.

I'd never heard of Julian, California before. I just looked it up. It seems that the pie shop is really popular. I hope you had a good piece of pie at least!

If one thinks that having a bike with a problem(s) that seems impossible to solve is bad ... think about the rest of us

It might be time to think about parking it in a bad area of town for a day or two if your insurance is good.
