What you really need to do is bolt a sidewinder missile to the back.

You can probably modify just about any small turbo to work.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: Turbo on a 900 RR

Hay thanks for the sarchasm, I thought people on this forum were out to help fellow riders, most responses I read are all BS unless you are a hardcore track racer. Some of us just like to tinker with bikes and street ride.

Hey man didn't mean any offense, I think it's a cool project but I really have no useful information to offer. If anything the bump that your thread got might get the attention of someone who can help.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: Turbo on a 900 RR

Finish Bike magazine called 'bomber' Made story about installing turbo to 900RR. can't remember what turbo that was. But I think they made custom exhaust and intake plenum and also used after cooler.

You need pressurized carburators, fuel pump, fuel regulator, turbo, intake plenum, cooler, exhaust that keeps the turbo high enough so it's higher then engines oil level, that way the bike smokes less because oil can return to the engine better.

I think there is swedish firm that sells turbo sets, I think it was called turbo express, or something like that. I have to check.

You also need low compression pistons or really thick head gasket too.

Can't remember the power they measured, but I think it was well over 250RWHP,

Re: Turbo on a 900 RR

Really, Mr. Turbo is only for the 929 and 954? Their website didn't elude to that. It made me think they only still made it for the 900RR. How did you find out that they only made kits for the 929/954? Do you know prices, power, etc.?

Here is a good article on when Sport Rider Blew their own. Enjoy

Re: Turbo on a 900 RR

I can't be of much help, but there's a place on Long Island called Powerhouse Motorcycles who specializes in that sort of stuff, if you're willing to travel. I don't have turbo or anything, but he did a great job custom mapping my 929. He's done a lot of turbo Hayabusas and has drag raced bikes for 30 years.

Re: Turbo on a 900 RR

You should talk to MC-Express here in sweden, they have kits for the 900 Blade, go to http://www.mc-xpress.com/

I think Erik Marklund at MC-Xpress sells kits in the US under the name American Turbo Systems. A friend of mine put a Marklundkit on his -96 Blade, the result was 218 rwhp and the bike was flying

The only problem he had was that he could not find harder valvesprings at first and when he shut the throttle at high speed the turbopressure forced the valves open and a couple of the valves fell into the cylinder...not good...

Luckily the damage was not that bad, Marklund helped him to fix it, and install harder springs...

Re: Turbo on a 900 RR

This is where some of the fastest riders talk...

http://www.superkaos.com/phpbb/

Check it out - they would be more down your alley for helping get you setup with a turbo if you are serious...

I had considered a turbo kit - thinking ooohh instant power - but the cost involved just wasn't worth it - a lot of the mods you have to do to the engine will run you in the 5-7 grand range (from what I've heard) - then you have to upgrade the braking system and clutch to match the power.

Trying to be like Rossi eh - with a 240 hp machine? HEHE
Goodstuff!
Cheers.

Re: Turbo on a 900 RR

My suggestion would be to do everything that can be done to the bike before trying to get a turbo. You may have done everything, but just sayn'. Personally, turbo would be the last modification I would do to a bike on a long list.
