Here is part of the e-mail I got today.
I am still waiting for the answers to some of my other questions.

Good News...

Hi, Rod.

The kits are indeed new. I have no ETA on when they are getting here yet. I will let you know.

The old bearings that you mentioned that were seizing were an old design. That was outmoded years ago.

Agreed, especially anyone looking to add this to a big bore setup.

Over here, a plan is forming. Scott has been on the batphone.

Hello Scott,



Thanks for taking the time to talk with me today.

The supercharger has always been a topic on the forum.



I hope that we can get a program set up and going.



I have copied some of the question from the forum.




- How many of these new designed kits are out and being used. What is the estimated amount of miles on these kits?

-The bearing issue is indeed old news .been more than one thread with that info before,what I'd like to see is what actually was done and the pics of the differences,so we can see with our own eyes,instead of the same rant ,yes that problem has been addressed.
- New stock or old stock
- Bearing new style or old style
- What are the differences
- What was done to get the new style into unit.
- How much heat is produced
- Updates with ecm set up
- Warranty, what is covered and what is not This is the big one.
- How long is ithe warranty
- Are the install instruction updated, where can I get a copy.
- Anything we should know that has been changed
- How much horsepower can I expect?

-How much torque can I expect.

-recommended fuel rating





Thank you

Warranty is per our standard warranty doc for USA and terms and conditions of sale.



In regard to the supercharger itself, originally the VRod System used the Sprintex S4-150. Since 2008, the systems have used a VRod version of the S5-150. The S5 has many changes over the S4, some of which were driven by the unusually high drive shock in the uneven fire VTwin engine used in the VRod. The S5-150 is totally reliable and has passed various OEM durability tests.



S5 Units have slightly higher isentropic efficiency than the S4, allowing the unit to run a little cooler than the early systems, but as any VRod owner will be aware, VRods can be a very hot motorcycle, even without the addition of 50HP.



In terms of what power and torque can be expected, this depends a little on what dyno and what wheels are fitted. On the dyno, (Dynojet 250) the stock rear wheel bikes usually make about 152 or 153 HP and torque above 90ftlbs from 3000 to 7000 RPM. Due to the inertia of a large rear tire, (250 or 300) the dyno reading is less by 6-8 HP and if the wheel is a heavy design, can be more. Exhaust systems make little difference. I have seen bikes make over 100ftlbs and over 160HP on Dyno jet 250I in various locations around the world. There are units in several European countries, Australia, Asia and USA/Canada.



All the above figures were achieved with the Sprintex VRod tuner and tuning that was intended to be emission legal, retaining the O2 sensors and closed loop on the 2008 and on. There are many units running with either Power Commander 5 or Thundermax, and some with the later Screaming Eagle tuner. I believe the power outcomes are similar. For these non Sprintex tuners, it is necessary to use the Harley Destroyer injectors, which we can also supply in the hardware only system.



Where possible, 93 fuel should be used. Better fuel helps all boosted engines, so I always recommend that customers use the best pump fuel available.



There are more 250 units sold in total, predominantly from 2006-2008, but we still sell units as people request them. The system is expensive to produce (all machined billet) and as such we do not actively push the sales of this unit.





With kind regards


Also, we no longer supply tuning. The customer or shop supplying the system will have to tune the MC. We don’t have pictures of the changes, the Supercharger was redesigned and there is a lot of proprietary information in the design that we do not want published.




With kind regards
