First look up the bore and stroke of both the 88 and Atlas and see the difference . , . . .

Just a stab in the dark , but the Works Domiracer 500 ran 99 sized big ends , so doubtfulkl . Unless a late 88 SS ran the big big ends - then youd need that crank . :(

Stroked to 650 Then bored to 750 , then 828 & eventually 920 / 960 . :shock: a Triumph of development over design ??

Journal Diameter is the CRUX . Find last year of 500 And X Check with 750 . :P
The Japanese response to ' styling ' , was to add more .
