October is here and snow is coming! Maybe you've been drag racing on asphalt or grass during the warm months, but who isn't itching to get back on the white stuff? Make sure your engine is ready by refreshing it with a Wiseco piston! We've recently skirt coated 24 additional models with ArmorGlide, including the Arctic Cat ZR800, Polaris 600, Ski Doo MXZ800, and Yamaha Phazer.
You might be asking yourself, what's so great about ArmorGlide? Wiseco developed ArmorGlide skirt coating through development, and benchmarking through its rigorous in-house dyno program. It's not only a high tech lubricant, but also allows the piston to be fitted tighter within the bore than a non-coated piston, reducing piston-to-wall clearance for better ring seal and reduced noise from piston rock. It also lowers friction. What does that mean? Lower friction increases piston efficiency, therefore contributing to increased horsepower. ArmorGlide also stays bonded to the piston for its typical life. It is more than just a break-in coating.
Wiseco went high tech with this skirt coating as well. Unlike spray on coatings, ArmorGlide is applied only where needed. A computer controlled application process applies the coating so there is no inconsistent thickness or overspray. Right down to the tightly controlled process times, ArmorGlide will not compromise the base materials, so you know you are getting a high performance Wiseco piston.
