I think for the amount of time you'd waste trying to work around everything you'd be better off pulling the motor

Since you'll already have the motor out, if it were me I'd just go ahead and pull it all apart, especially if you're going to be replacing the crank. Chances are you won't be pulling the motor again anytime soon, so why not do a little preventive maintenance?

I bought motor with 2200 miles on it and it has a balance issue have replaced entire drivetrain and still anything over 3000 rpm have realy bad vibrations. When i researched the company that built motor they are out of bizz. But what i did find was lots of complaints about them selln motors that were not internaly balanced.

+1 on this suggestion then. Better to be safe than sorry later. It shouldn't need any machine work or anything if it is that fresh of a build. But a good eyeball will tell you what you need when it's apart.
