Electric turbo charger... what is this world coming too
Hahaha!Electric turbo charger... what is this world coming too
Take it apart and measure the clearances. Don't waste your time asking on forums as people don't know the answers to these questions.Hi, I have an 06 600 that im looking to get the most from within reason.
Im a machinist with access to any type of equipment I'd need, and if I wanted to I could bore the cylinders, deck the head for added compression etc. Im not wanting to go that far right now, but what I am interested in is porting the head(if that even needs to be done) and especially using a thinner gasket for higher compression. What I'd like to know is will using a thinner gasket cause interference between valves/piston/head and require further modification?
Will using a TRE with the added compression lead to detonation or will the ECU be able to retard the timing properly regardless of the compression?
If anyone has any suggestions as to other mods I should do while the engine is apart feel free to educate me, Im new here in the gixxer world.
This is an old post, but I like reading what Tim Radley says. He does great portwork.... and has good adviceTake it apart and measure the clearances. Don't waste your time asking on forums as people don't know the answers to these questions.
Porting - good luck. Very easy to loose power. I've tested loads of heads that were modified and made substantially worse than stock from both porting and/or valve job even from big name shops.
Don't chase compression, waste of time.
Detonation on a 600? Never seen it myself.
Fit adjustable cam sprockets and time it up, way way more power in that than compression. Stock timing figures are a bag of wank.
Not really... I have ridden turbo 600s, turbo 1000s, and turbo busas, and all spool very quickly and are fun as hell to ride. While the market isn't really there for a turbo 600, it can and has been done with good results. Turbo sizing is important to prevent massive lag, but I can tell you that the snail on @oldgixxer's turbo busa is the size of a small child, lol...There's no replacement for displacement. If you wanna really delve into something worthwhile and see huge power gains I would sell the 600 and buy a busa. I kinda skimmed through the posts but a single turbo is most effective within the 1500cc to 3000cc range. Depending on the size of the cylinders. On a 600cc (150cc per cylinder) the turbo lag would be a huge issue.
Yeah,and that bike hates small children:chucksbut I can tell you that the snail on @oldgixxer's turbo busa is the size of a small child, lol...
