    2004 supercharger shaft

    I have a 2004 rxp with 198 hours on it. I need to rebuild my supercharger 136 hours of it were stock. 60 hours of it was with a riva vortex SC wheel and metal clutch washer.
    the last two hours were with the rotaxracing wheel

    Is it safe/ok to use the 04 set up with the rotaxracing wheel as long as I have the metal clutch washers and ceramic bearings ?

    Yes, you can use the 04-05 shaft, but at those hours, I would replace bearings, gear, spring washers and clutch washers. Since you should do all that, you might as well upgrade to the bigger shaft.

    The shaft and teeth on the gears wear down quickly. Mine at 100+ hours looked horrible. I would highly recommend a complete rebuild. I would also highly recommend you have Jerry do it. (he just did mine)
    The S/C causes major damage, heartache, downtime, when something breaks in it.
