Crank machining quote

Can anyone offer up a quick ballpark quote for machining cylinder number 2 rod surface on a crank(900rr)

I have some quick decisions to make over getting yet another bike or repairing an engine for now. Thanks!

(mild scratches that catch on fingernail.)

If it really is just light scratches, you can probably polish them out. Did it spin a bearing? Is there any blue-ing on the crank or rods? Any local machine shop can polish a crank as long as the journal is still the correct shape and size.

Worst case scenario, send it to APE or Falicon for repair, you might as well send them the rods to for resizing and correct bearings.
