Brand: Hot Rods

Features:

  • Heavy Duty Hot Rods are double forged to improve grain flow and maintain dimensional consistency and the connecting rod strength has been considerably increased by maximizing the thickness of the rod forging
  • Hot Rods are shot peened to eliminate surface stress risers and to smoothly blend the rod forging's radiuses together, which produces more consistent dimensioning and surface finish for superior strength under heavy loads
  • The connecting rod has a bronze bushed wrist pin bore for reduced pin galling and additional shock loading resistance
  • Small ends are double drilled to supply extra lubrication and cooling to the wrist pin
  • Rod kit includes rod, big end bearing and silver coated phosphor-bronze thrust washers

Details: Hot Rods are double forged to improve grain flow and maintain dimensional consistency. They're shot peened to eliminate surface stress risers and to smoothly blend the rod forging's radiuses together, which produces more consistent dimensioning and surface finish for superior strength under heavy loads, unlike hand ground and polished rods. By shot peening the connecting rod's surface, fatigue durability is improved two times over a un-peened forged rod, and over eight times, compared to a polished rod. Double honing produces an ultra round bearing surface (50 millionths tolerance), producing a reliable high RPM connecting rod. Small ends are double drilled to supply extra lubrication and cooling to the wrist pin and bearing. Uniquely big end design uses strategically located side scalloping and vent slots to minimize high RPM bearing race distortion. Fits Yamaha 2003-2005 YZ450F, 2004-2006 WR450F.
