2012 FXSHO 164 hrs Sprag Bearing failure.

So my Supercharger rotates in both directions.
Im down 30-40% on HP.
At first the super charger would not spin 1 way easily and felt lumpy...
All research is telling me Sprag Bearing.
Yet to pull SC out.
Any recommends for a Sprag bearing that will have a little longer life ?

Put a BOV on your system and don't rev the crap out of it when it's not in the water, the only two things you can do Mines done 309 hours so far and still like new, I was told when I first got my Ski not to rev it when not in the water as far as fast bursts as it can damage the bearing ? Not a very good design really if that can do damage but hey I got a BOV straight away and always rev it slowly when not in the water
I have friends that have done over 1000 hours with the original bearing so it must have to do with how people treat the Ski out of the water
I hope that helps, I am sure some one will correct me if I was incorrect
