    no you don't need an upgraded shaft

    but yes it would be a good idea to do something to improve the reliability of the SC clutch - there are a couple of new modifications available to do this, hopefully someone will come out with a more cost effective solution - this is what Richie is working on

    I have the Riva but if I was buying again today for a low boost setup I would probably go with the R&D. Riva uses the same design as the stock shaft with a pressed on gear while the R&D is solid billet. They are nearly the same price, only difference is Riva's come with replacement bushings & you have to pay extra for them with R&D's.

    Only thing is neither of these will help clutch life on higher boost setups & the only current option for that is from Rotax at 3X the price. Seems like there's other stuff coming from ET & others, so if you don't need it right away it might be worthwhile waiting until the riding season is closer & new stuff hits the market.

    I've heard of a few people snapping the gear off the Riva shaft with bigger wheels but never heard of either the Riva or R&D breaking with low boost(C3/B1). For me, I just wanted a little extra piece of mind, even though an upgraded shaft probably wasn't really necessary for my setup. If I was going to run an E1 or comparable wheel I think I'd be looking at the newer($$$) systems that also help take stress off the clutch.
