    C3 Monster wheel. Do I need to do the supercharger shaft at the same time?

    I have a 2011 FXSHo with 35 hours on it. It's had the faulty SC clutch replaced. I'm about to order the C3 wheel but I really cant stretch to the shaft at the same time (Christmas with 3 kids costs a fortune!) So would you install a C3 wheel on a stock shaft, or would you do a shaft upgrade first?

    I have had the C3 for 40hrs with stock shaft. No problem so far. Upgradind would probably be best but it still works

    Shaft is a good upgrade but you could run without it.

    imo its cheap insurance.breaking a shaft could cost you the wheel and the supercharger.get the RD it is the lightest.

    I just put a C3 in my fzr, and looking at the stock shaft I can see why they break, just the threaded end concerned me let alone the press fit gear at the back, I worked out it was $6 more to buy the GEN 3 billet shaft kit which came with a one piece bearing as Apposed to buying just a billet shaft and one piece bearing separately.

    i know they state you don't need a fuel reg upgrade, but when I took mine out 30deg normal aussie day my air fuel ratios were at 12.6- 12.8 wide open throttle, so I have put a reg on now so I know It can get the fuel it needs.

    probably best to just keep saving and buy a better shaft and fuel reg when you can, than just jumping in and running the risk of a "potential" disaster

    other than that it's an awesome wheel you defenatly notice a big change.

    I ran my c3 on the stock shaft for just over 100 hours. Burnt up a clutch at 60. Shaft finally let go when my 2012 clutch-riva dampner combo lost its teeth.

    I would run the c3 and stock shaft again in a heartbeat. However I would recommend a blow off valve if you haven't already. Did you get a 2013 clutch/idler set??

    Yes got the 2013 clutch idler set.
    Running the oem ECU I'll get the reflash done as soon as the wheel goes in if I cant find a Riva AThena at a good price. Hadnt considered the fuel reg. Going to do the Riva OEM intercooler upgrade over Christmas Is that going to be enough of an upgrade to run the addiitonal boost / temp of the C3?
