    Hot Rods Wrist Pin Bearings

    Ok, so I am thinking about having crankworks swap my two good and one bad rod for a set of HotRods rods. They come with bearings. I hear the design of the HotRods rods is slightly better, ie stronger, than the OEM; but the bearings is what I have a question about. Are the bearings good? Or should I go with OEM? And do the HotRods rod kits come with the wrist pins and bearings also?

    I see here they do. I have only talked breifly with crankworks about this but I am wondering what everyone else here would do.


    Go with HotRods Rods, Bearings?

    Go with HotRods Rods, OEM Bearings?

    Swap the broke OEM Rod with a new one, OEM Bearings?

    If you broke a stock rod, forever reason, (like I did), I would wonder if the others are not fatigued or questionable as well. Why not start with all new rods, for the piece of mind anyway. Its not that much more when you consider all the other costs you are doing rebuilding the crank.

    Thats exactly what I am thinking even though I know it was a wrist pin bearing that owned the rod. What about the bearings though?

    Well, I haven't gotten my crank back yet, so I don't know if they come with the rods, but I bought new Yamaha bearings, cause I've not seen any problems with them in any of my units, except for a superjet the kids sucked too much water thru.

    Chris,

    Just a suggestion but I would ask your portsmith what to put in there. Ultimately his name is going to be on the line if something fails.

    My WSM pistons came with bearings and so did my Hotrod crank ! You couldn't see any difference Z
