A lightweight crank is usually not recommended for the street. The real end result price goes up exponentially if 'heavy metal' has to be added to get a balance. Special bearings with provisions for the bigger fillets usually found on light cranks must be used. For the street, money is better spent on cyliner heads and durability.
