- Made in the U.S.A.
- DME Racing recommends this gear for any drag racing application.
What is Cavitation?
Cavitation in the oiling system can lead to several issues and potential engine damage. When the bubbles collapse, they create tiny shockwaves that can erode or damage the metal surfaces of engine components, especially in areas with high fluid velocity or pressure, such as the oil pump impeller or bearings. Over time, this can result in pitting, erosion, and wear on critical engine parts, leading to reduced engine performance and potentially catastrophic failure.
Cavitation is particularly concerning in motorcycle engines because it can lead to various problems and potential engine damage. The implosion of bubbles creates tiny shockwaves that can erode the engine’s metal surfaces, leading to pitting or erosion. Over time, this can weaken the engine components and reduce the engine’s overall performance and lifespan.
