Hotrods cranks are good, use them with confidence. Haven't heard much good about wiseco cranks. OEM cranks are the best but you may have a hard time finding a good low hour used one & if you do it'll probably be overpriced... Hotrods did have an issue with some earlier cranks having tin failures but they fixed that problem. If your still concerned about the tins you can have them welded for peace of mind. I had that done on my hotrods short rod crank. Also when you get new crank bearings use the CR500 8 ball bearings. There p/n: 91003-KA4-771.

I have had great luck with OEM Honda and Hotrods cranks. I have heard of wiseco cranks tin failures. Every crank I run I have welded the tins and pin just to add a little bit of insurance. I know a few people running wiseco cranks without issue, but again they sent them to me and I welded the tins and pin. So whichever aftermarket crank you get I would definitely get it welded.
