Wiseco powersports crankshafts feature a double forged connecting rod made from dedicated forgings. The rods maintain superior strength, durability, and dimensional consistency through improved grain flow. Shot peening eliminates residual stress and oil slots are located to maximize lower rod oiling and extend bearing life.
Coated bronze thrust washers have a dimpled design to increase oil retention and reduces stress between the connecting rod, washer, and crank web. Double-drilled small ends provide the piston pin with extra lubrication and cooling, reducing distortion of top end due to thermal transfer from the piston.
