Holy Turbo 600....

A local rider and customer at the shop finally finished his Turbo Gixxer 6. It's pretty much all custom as the company he went through had never done a 600 with that size turbo. It looks almost stock and unless you knew it was turbo you'd have to look really close to see it. Nice and stealthy. HE's currently running it a 10 pounds of boost on pump gas and putting 185hp to the wheel and around 60 lbs of torque. The builder says he can run up to 14 pounds of boost on pump and get almost 200hp. With C16 and 16 pounds of boost he can get 225...wooohooo, now that's some hp for a 600.

I asked him how it rides, ya know, if it's streetable. He said that first gear is almost completely useless. He has to short shift 2nd and 3rd with any more then half throttle application due to the anti-gravity properties of the front. He is keeping it the stock wheelbase for now since he enjoys riding the twisties. He needs to get a braced swingarm from a 750 or 1000 and beef his clutch up some. He did lots of interanl work and has put lots of time and money into it. It should be in Super Streetbike mag soon as well.

Re: Holy Turbo 600....

I would be scared to ride that in the twisties...a turboed 600...talk about non linear power delivery.

Re: Holy Turbo 600....

The dyno printout is quite interesting. It makes "normal" power up to 6500rpm and when the turbo spools up it rockets almost staright up. I can't see how that would be very fun to ride in the corners.

Could only imagine what the dyno in your area would give him for numbers on that thing

Re: Holy Turbo 600....

He had it done up in Mesa at ECS, they at least know what they are doing. Sure would have been funny to see what it put out on the dyno I ran mine on. **** it'd be like 400hp.

Re: Holy Turbo 600....THE RIDE!

Got myself a chance to ride this bike over the weekend.

This bike is way to much fun to ride. We're downtown on Saturday night and he shows up. Lots of people haven't seen it up close so there were many interested faces peaking inside the fairings. Since I'd already seen it a few times the owner and I were BS'ing about a BBQ we had attended earlier in the day. People started asking all sorts of questions so he answered them. After all the lookers were done he offered me the key. At first I really didn't want to but after some arm twisting I caved.

He let me know that he had raised the boost to about 14 and was running C16(which you could smell as soon as he pulled up). He cautioned me that 1st is really not friendly right now. So I gear up and slap down my shield and I'm off. I ride up the street a ways and 1st doesn't really seem so bad. The boost builds and there is an obvious and massive increase in power. The front becomes light but a chop of the throttle fixes that. So I chop it. Shift to 2nd and roll on throttle smoothly through 5500, 6000, 6500, here comes 7000...weeeeeeeee. Chop the throttle. So far 1st and 2nd are pretty much useless. I head towards a road that is not a heavy traffic area well out of the publics eye.. Cruising around it rides like any other 03 Gixxer 6 I have ridden. Shifting below 7k there is no pronounced wastegate blow off, so it's nice and stealthy. I get to the road and am cruising in 3rd around 5k rpm and begin a crisp roll of the throttle. Here comes 7000......hold on, OH MY LORD we're off. Knowing this isn't my bike and I am on a public street I roll back off the throttle. I would really like to see what it could do but not with my license on the line, no thanks. I head back and have a bit of fun shifting at the point where the wastegate blows.

In the end I am quite surprised at this little 600 project he has. Off the turbo it's pretty normal and you can even ride into the beginning stages of boost fairly smoothly. As long as you don't aggressively apply the throttle too hard it's quite managable. He says once you get over 10k it's unreal, but on the streets I really didn't want to find out. He's still running the stock wheelbase but he has changed the gearing. I believe he went up 1 in the front and down 2 in the back. I'm not sure I'd want one as a daily driver but I think it would be pretty fun at the drags. He does ride it every day and is very happy with how it turned out.

Re: Holy Turbo 600....

saw a video of either an 04 or 05 G6 turboed. that thing pulled the wheel up to the sky after each shift.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

I'm quite sure this will also but I wasn't about to try.
