Seems odd that they can run boost on an engine with such a high compression ratio, but they have supposedly really beat on the thing for quite awhile and it's staying together running pump gas premium. Not pinging itself into oblivion. Not wasting the transmission.

I wonder what the kit costs?? Some people say they "think" it is about $2,000. Anyone know?

Guess I'd have to come up with a right side crash bar to protect it offroad...

Back to seriously, I wonder how clutch dust in the oil affects the typical turbocharger center "floater" bearing? Increased OCI's due to this? Inline filter?

p.s.: I'd say the turbo experience (octane requirement) fairly well proves a point HighFive made that in stock config naturally aspirated, the bikes probably won't be hurt with occasional regular unleaded.

Colorado RR

I have just finished the ride report from the trip that my brother Apostle2 and I took to the Silverton and Taylor Park areas of Colorado. We did the ride about a month back but work has delayed the writeup. Click on the "Two Brothers....ride Colorado" link in my signature and thanks in advance for reading.

Wr250R and PickUp Trucks

Does anyone out there transport their R in the back of their pickup? Specifically I'd like to know if the R fits within the bed with the gate up WITHOUT having to cock the bike sideways. Or put another way, will TWO R's fit within your pickup bed? Please tell me what truck you have.
(I'm planning on getting a new pickup when I go back to the USA but I will not have a lot of time to do 'on the ground' research, hence the question)
BTW. GREAT THREAD here. Thanks to all for such useful info.

That would completely depend on the truck, now wouldn't it?

8' bed = straight in tailgate up.

6' bed = straight in tailgate down, or cocked at an angle with the tailgate up.

Practical, but it sounds (and probably looks) so wrong.

Love the idea. I carry my bicycles in the back of an suv with the wheels off, but must push one of them in with the bottom of the forks scraping. I'm thinking a small wheel or ball on an extra axle would be the bomb. Awaiting your pix.

He recommends the use of octane booster with his kit.

FWIW - I had to carry a fellow inmate (220 lbs in gear)a few miles in rough trails, then 20 miles on the road. Being homophobic, he refused to sit close to me on the seat. He sat on my rack (Turbo City) the whole time and nothing broke. Granted this is not a long term test, but gives some indication of total short-term load handling.

Turbo Kit - octane booster

Blue Pill,

Thanks for the info. I wouldn't want to have to spend for octane booster all the time. I was actually kinda' borderline considering it until then...

Long history with auto hotrods and a few fast bikes, so goin' rocket looked kinda' fun..

BluePill,

Thanks for the info. While short term, that exceeds any torture test I'll ever give my tail rack!

Anybody change their fuel pump and notice a difference in the sound it makes compared to the original 2008?
