BK question re transmission and con rod

2 posts in this topic

BK,

Do you do anything special to the gears or rod? Anything like cryogenic tempering or shot peening? How often do you change these components on a race bike? Just curios, they seem to be the weak links in the engine and before I put mine back together I could have the trans and rod shot peened.

I really can't comment on the parts we use on our race bike, however, I don't think shot peening is a bad idea. I don't know alot about cryogenic freezing but I know some people swear by it. I'd do more research and then make my decision. We inspect the parts you mentioned every 5 hours and replace them when necessary.
