At 1st I was going to rip the rack and sissy bar off but its kindy cool. I have kids so if I get this going maybe I can take one to bike night with me.


Jim, i've been itching to bolt that turbo up ever sence it was delivered. When I got this bike last week I quickly tore into it to see if it would run. To my suprise after draining the bowls it fired right up. Not great but it ran on all 4 cyl's. Figured the intakes need resealing and carbs gone through so this is a perfect time to install the turbo. I actually have another 6-5-0 I was going to put it on but that needs ALOT of work.

Over the weekend we took off the exhaust, intakes, carbs and airbox. I need to snap a few more pics......

Any and I mean any info. you have please feel free to add it.

Here's the kit pic:

Played with it some more. Here just a mock up of the turbo in place. Looks like the stock EX collars won't work......will probably need to cut them down to fit the header.

A band saw will give you more control.
