    Supercharger shaft

    Putting an Et low boost along with supporting mods on my 2013 FZ. Is the R&D shaft a good choice or is the Riva gen 3 worth the extra money. I have seen mixed opinions on the Riva.

    the RD should be all youd ever need.it is the lightest and ive never heard of anyone breaking that thing.i have heard mixed things about the riva.

    I am running the high boost wheel on an R&D shaft. Using ET bushings.
