Modding my FZR
i recently scored a supposedly R&D C1 off eBay (along with a skat prop $50) the wheel is in good condition but that's all I got...
are there any other bits that go with this wheel to make it fit?
Now the only numbers I am able to get from this wheel are 9332 casted into it.
i have a few issues
the original wheel measures 82mm in diam
the new wheel 88mm
which the brings me to the next problem
the new wheel sits hard against the backing plate where as the standard one sits nice down in he recessed edge, (see the pen outline)
im thinking this plate needs to be machined or I'm missing the one it should have come with?
probably solved by a stainless shim is the shaft protrudes further out not allowing then it to tighten down onto the impeller
so to sort this all can anybody suggest my next step?

I think you are missing the Exducer Seal Plate kit. Which can be seen in this C3 Wheel pic
You may wanna make a paypal claim and send it back to the seller!

If it's a C1, it should fit in the stock exducer plate. If it does not fit, then it must be a C3. If it is a C1, the wheel is all you would get; if it's a C3, it should have come with the plate. I can't see the pics you posted, but compare your wheel to the one in the link posted by Lakeside518 and this one (a C1):http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...roducts_id=918

It missing a thick cone looking washer that goes on the shaft before the nut

It is a C3, you will either need the back plate - or get a return/refund. I just measured my C1 & it is 82mm, same as stock.

Figured it had to be a C3 when he stated it doesn't sit down in the recessed edge and that the wheel is 88mm vs 82mm.

You can buy those parts from R&D, just call Glenn. But it is for sure a C3 wheel as I just measured mine last week to compare with Jerrys new 2014 SVHO impeller. BUT those parts aren't cheap.

Thanks heaps for the instant feedback you blokes rock!
i won't be sending it back, I found on the 4tech site there is a rebuild kit to suit the c3/c5 wheels I've enquired about. For $200 if that's all it's going to cost to get it running I'm happy still.
not sure if it's worth investing another $150 and buying the one piece shaft bearing while it's apart, I've got a bit of play in there now with the standard bearings
I just like to make sure I'm doing things properly as I've taken shortcuts in the past and it's end up biting me in the arse $$$
does a C3 require the need for a rising rate reg or will I get away with the stock system still?

I would install a better fuel pump and a aeromotive FPR. But you can get away with just the FPR.

some slight movement is normal make sure to change the supercharger shaft when you change the wheel or you will end breaking the stock shaft and ruining your wheel.
