[QUOTE=OldDog;23079799 although I think the standard box may not be sealable and handle the boost. I will try it though, you never know your luck!

man, you're fast!
The stock airbox has no luck whatsoever. It will be a matter of minutes to blow the lid off!

Did you ever read about this kit? The kid did a nice write up on VFRD.

Hey thanks for the links MT great reading! I've gotten only the first few pages read so far so havn't gotten to where he really shows the drive shaft from the crank but basically I came to the same conclusion as him. Trick is he can drive in a clockwise motion, where as on the KTM looks like counter clockwise is gonna be the safest...don't want to break engine bits like cranks...

I see he's using a Rotrex turbine which is like half a turbo, nice bits of gear, I think TTS in the UK builds blower kits for a number of bikes using them. Being an old school hot rodder type i prefer the old rootes type rotor systems.

The TPR hillclimb guys are using the intermediate shaft to drive their injection pump and ignition rotor.

Blower rotation solution

OK, from another list, I can't take ownership of this solution...

To reverse the direction of the blower, use a double-sided belt. You'd make the "outside" of the belt wrap around the blower pulley with idlers.

Read the first bullet point under the "Target Markets" header:

You could cross the belts as on a Lister Shearing Plant.

That would be a Hargan's saw.
No, I do not have one. Must try to get one.

The Hargan type saw was manufactured by a couple of manufacturers including Mobilco. Some had a BSA (M20, I think) engine in them but I do no believe that they had a crossover belt.
When you think about it, maybe a complete engine swap may improve the KTM. You could then rip through the scrub so to speak.

LOL rip through the scrub, too much Col! These guys at work are wondering why I'm pissing meself laughing. And to think, I used those saws when I was a young fella and used the wrong name. But yeah from memory you could turn the drive head and saw blade 90 degrees to chop up and down as well as side to side, and that twisted the belt. The health and safety guys would have a field day with those things nowadays!
