Just seen this on Pistonheads from an M3W owner:

I am at Stage 2 with mine and considering bolting a supercharger to the front.

Is that possible?

Lots of super and turbo charged V Twin bikes out there, so no reason why a M3W can't be done.

A supercharger sounds like a spectacular way to find any weak points in the drivetrain!

I suspect the Centa and clutch would make a dramatic appearance somewhere near your feet.

I have a friend who once shot some nitrous oxide into what was a gold wing engine (1000)... he no longer had an engine

Most of the bike people I've run into with S&S have known or admitted to being the guy what hotted up their engines with hot cams, nitrous oxide, enlarged pistons and valves to increase the cc's. All for racing. And like all the race people I know, having an engine blow up or have to rebuild constantly due to the stresses. An expensive addition to an already expensive hobby.

I believe that I have enough power to get into a lot of trouble without adding to it!


What's your mileage? Who cares. Is it practical? See #1. What happens when it rains? You get wet.
