No that's not a BMW, it's a 139 cubic turbocharged 425 hp Harley that we race at Bonneville these days. 139 cubic inches is 2,277 cubic centimeters or about twice as big as your typical BMW. It requires a special multi-plate sintered iron clutch with a centrifugal lock up mechanism. More than 25 years ago we started turbocharging BMWs and ran into the same thing we encountered with Harleys, Kawasakis and Suzukis...double or triple the horsepower and zip goes the clutch."
