    Cryogenic freezing of engine parts

    Has anyone heard anything positive or personally tried cryogenically freezing specific engine parts? Was wondering if it would help with the 2011 updated sprag clutch issues of the FZR, the sheering of teeth on the sprocket of the sprag clutch and the drive sprocket?

    Yes, we have used that on some parts at the engine shop I worked at. Also have used it on brake rotors, etc. Its helps, but to what extant depends on part and application.

    Very interesting.
    The benefits of cryogenic tempering have actually been known since World War II.

    I had my entire SXR 800 cryogenically treated , along with alot of parts such as pump bearings, rings , pistons, spark plugs, drill bits etc.
    The motor has lasted 2 entire seasons before I sold it , which is unheard of for an OPEN class motor. I paid $2 a pound to have this process performed here locally . It has been an overall worthy expense.

    looked in to this before and really thought it would be interesting to see how things would wear, but never took the next step.
