Each Wiseco clutch basket as dedicated forgings built specifically to take advantage of features that can only be made through the precision forging process. Variable fillet blends and complex surfaces can be forged into the part that would otherwise be extremely difficult to produce. The raw forgings are then precision machined to very close tolerances, producing the same high quality parts as Wiseco pistons.
Wiseco® began the manufacture of pistons 70 years ago when founder Clyde Wiseman started making them in his garage. The pistons he made at that time were destined for use in big bore marine engines, and like so many successful companies that began in people’s garages, word of what he was doing spread and soon he was making pistons for friends and so business began to grow. When Wiseco was officially formed in 1941 it serviced the needs of racers and powersports enthusiasts, and today the powersports sector – predominantly motorcycles and ATVs – now accounts for the largest portion of the work done by the business.
