Default BDX/SSI Titanium Jackshaft

Anyone break one yet, are they stronger than the stock 14 shaft? I just broke my stock 14 shaft right behind the chaincase bearing & thinking of installing the Ti shaft. The Ti shaft is the 15 design & says it requires the 15 bearing. What's the difference between the 14-15 shafts & bearing? I'm running the MVM belt drive which came with a new bearing & a special bushing. Will the 15 Ti shaft bolt right in to the MVM bearing or will I need a different bearing &/or a different bushing?

Curious on real world feedback on these too.

I talked to MVM today. According to them, the 15 shaft will fit into the bearing they supplied with the belt drive, without using the bushing. So, the 15 shaft must be substantially thicker in area where the bushing goes, which is also right where my 14 shaft broke. I'm thinking the 15 style Ti shaft should be plenty strong.

TKI said the 2015 and 2016+ chain case bearings are the same too. He had heard that there's more twist in the Ti jackshafts. Twist is ok to me, but bending and getting the secondary out of line under power is not favorable to me. I don't see how you can have one and not the other.

Default Ti Jackshaft

We haven't had any Titanium shafts break ever.

They are light and strong! And in stock. Will fit 2012-15 models.

They have the snap ring grooves on them like stock, and also threaded on the end, so you can use it on a belt drive or just like stock.

12-14 models need to use the 2015 style bearing. We have in stock as well, they are only $14.95 each for the bearing.

I've got about 1800 miles now at 185hp on my titanium jack shaft from bdx. No issues and absolutely love it! also have it tied to a tki belt drive. Shaft is tapped so you can just throw the upper gear on and the cup washer and go! Highly recommend it if you have a stock jackshaft or plan on running a belt drive!

Yep. But there is more to it.

To compare materials; assume 1000 ft/lbs torque applied to a 1.5 inch diameter shaft that is 2 feet long.

Carbon Steel: 2.4 degrees twist at end of shaft
Titanium: 4.5 degrees twist at end of shaft

However, titanium has several advantages. Weight, obviously (56% the weight of steel); corrosion (Ti doesn't corrode...and corrosion will pit the surface and create/start small cracks that lead to failure in steel); fatigue life (Ti can be stressed over and over, usually at higher forces, and spring back without failure).

So, yeah, Ti will move a bit more but it doesn't really age/wear-out and it will be more reliable over time because you won't get corrosion cause cracks that grow and shear. And sometimes having a bit more "give" in a material is a great thing...a driveshaft and the shock loading it sees is the perfect application IMO. And one last thought...because the Ti gives a bit more, it will be kinder and transmit less stress back into to everything attached to it like bearings, gears/cogs, chassis, etc. Nerd out.

Probably gets more expensive to start with that large diameter shaft and then machine it all the way out. Both on raw material as well as machining costs. Ti might not be as good for a bearing surface for the Team BOSS secondary that is on the 2016+ sleds. Lot smaller benefit/dollar compared to the hollow 2018+ Cat oem shafts.
