300rwhp,400lbs

I finished up the 1st phase(started over the winter) of my 05 1K turbo build by installing a McIntosh Aluma Street 4"-10" over swingarm&a much needed air shifter. I rode it around on the street since May with a stock swingarm&17/40 gearing(-2 on rear)with the boost turned down.
Even at wastegate spring pressure(8psi) the bike would simply wheely at the slightest twist of throttle under boost;which was fun for a few weeks but I was unable to put any real useable power down as even in 6th gear the bike would pull the front wheel at will.

I never got around to doing a full build-thread on the bike so here is a little info. I decided against bolting on a turbo capable of adding 75rwhp on its basic 6lbs of boost setting onto a stock engine with 22,000miles so I instead took the plunge and went with a turbo-specific full engine build capable of handling 25-30psi which equals 400-450rwhp. Overkill? Absolutely but you simply cannot cut corners with forced induction or you will have an expensive pile of melted parts. After talking to many people,I had chosen a popular&well established shop on Long Island to order the turbo kit from and to do the turbo install but had not decided on whom I would use to do the engine build.

A good friend of mine(who had a 500rwhp turbo Busa)urged me to take a ride and speak to a guy named Mike Tona who owns a small shop called http://www.saeoutlawperformance.com/. Mike&I hit it off right away and after seeing a few of his bikes and a couple of his customers bikes I made my choice and trusted him to build the engine as well as install the turbo&tune the bike. All I can say is that I wish I would have known about Mike a long time ago as he would have saved me thousands of hard earned dollars on my past builds. Dude is straight up hardcore and is a machinist by trade as well as one of the top engine builders in the country. I highly recommend him to anybody who wants their bike to produce more power(turbo,nitrous,NA,whatever).

We went with Carillo H beam rods,JE turbo pistons,under cut trans,ditched the titanium valves&went with std size stainless int/ex valves,adj. sprockets,etc. The stock clutch started to slip around 240rwhp so I had Mike install a 2 stage lock-up from Johny Turbo at Exotic Cycles. This instantly fixed the slippage. Mike also fabbed up a manual boost controller and manged to get 13psi of boost before the stock injectors were maxxed out and we ran out of fuel. We ended up with just about 300rwhp on 93 octane pump gas which is very impressive. With an upgraded fuel system this turbo will easily make 400rwhp all day

Ok,so now that I provided a bit of background info I built this bike for standing-mile events,1/4mi drag racing&to ride on the street. So far Ive only had it on the street,as the bike at stock wheelbase is a handful to ride and launching it hard would be nearly impossible without longer wheelbase...So I ordered a custom built arm from http://www.mcintoshmachineandfab.com/ The crafstmanship&quality is second to none and this arm will have NO problems handling whatever amount of horsepower I can throw at it without twisting or breaking. I ordered it with a built-in air tank which saves room under the tail section of the bike as no additional air tank is needed.

Next up was the air shifter kit which I also got from SAE Outlaw,Mike pieces the kits together himself and the price just cant be beat compared to whats on the market. I ordered a plug-n-play wiring kit from MPS with an ignition-kill box that gets wired into the coils and cuts the power for a few millisecods&allows full power upshifts at the press of your horn button. Ive used the MPS wiring kits before and they make installation a breeze for people like me who arent that handy when it comes to anything electrical.

While I was installing the airshifter I took the time to paint the footpegs/brackets satin black to match the rest of the bike&clean up the lines a bit..they look much better this way then the factory silver finish I think. Everything is tucked neatly away in the tail section out of sight. I took apart a 12v portable air compressor that was laying in the trunk of my car&wired it onto the bike with a momentary switch mounted on the right side of the fairing on the front of the bike. Push the button to re-fill the air in the arm,simple as that.

I swapped out the stock 1k rear shock for my Gen1 Busa shock which has a much stiffer spring,it was a direct swap.

So,here are pics of the finished install. I hope to make it to the dragstrip next week to get it dialed in and see what kind of numbers I can run. I'm planning on attending the Wilmington Mile in Ohio next year as well to see what mph I can reach in the standing-mile;hoping for 215mph which the bike is easily capable of although I don't know if I am lol

A few more pix.

And the last pic is the beginning of my next winter project: a full turbo build on my '00 Busa which I bought new and still puts a smile on my face everytime I look at it

Re: 300rwhp,400lbs

I've read more than once that boost is addictive and a slippery slope to step-on. I see it's too late to warn you

Sick. I am very jealous.

Re: 300rwhp,400lbs

It does look like a really fun fag bike though!!

Bike looks awesome, I never heard of the Wilmington mile track. I just googled it, it's actually farther than Maxton was! I was thinking it might be a lot closer. So that's the new ECTA home.

Where's the engine shop at OG? I looked on their site & it doesn't list their address.

Is that an active airport?? It has to be a hell of a lot better track surface than at Maxton.

Technically still "active". But the whole airport is shut down. And is shut down for the event.

But they do fly in certain planes through out the year. But not for the event.

I personally have not been down the track. A friend of mine has an 08 turbo busa he just got done. And went there with him this past time.

They are VERY slow. I will tell you that. But then again, they have only had like 4 events taken place.
But in one day, he only got his 3 re-runs in.

The track has a hill mid way. So it kind of sucks watching. You either watch the take offs, or watch the end. Cause there is no in-between.

There is no MPH board. So unless you have a radio, or sitting in the certain areas marked off, you do not know MPH of a car. And no speakers through out the track. Which sucks.

But had a good time there though. Would love to get a bike like yours, and make a few runs.

That think should put down some nice numbers! I'd imagine at that wheelbase it's still going to be a handful?
