I have had two turbo's one Mr. Turbo and one RB Racing. The RB was much better but I still will not own another one as our bikes just are not very streetable when Turboed.

I used the same description to describe a freinds souped up 82 GS1100L once it it 6K, it was like a "Banshee coming out". (1166 cc, ported head, ovesized valves, webcam 0.340's degreed 110/110 ).

With an turboed 1100 Gixxer, I would be a monster when the high end kicked it especially if coupled with some turbo lag :eek:hmy ......

Holey cripes :burnout

I have a 1986 turbocharged GSXR 1100. Some more pics of i here. http://www.gixxer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=187957
A lot more of pis and info on my webpage. http://makephpbb.com/phpbb/viewforum.php?f=3&sid=a821f23c9a4c2306948f1b5cbed0254a&mforum=gixxer
The cheapest way is to build it yourself. But this requires some fabrication skills and access to welding equipment, preferably TIG welder. Over at http://oldskoolsuzuki.info/ you find a lot of good info on diy turbo kits.

already went and read stuff over there.
good stuff, i must say!

i understood how a turbo works, but that's set up on a fuel injection!
i wish you would go into detail on how to prep a carby for turbo - that's all i need to know!

any write-up of some sort would be appreciated!

I use a Mitsubishi TD04HL-18T turbo.

If you use 1986-88 GSXR1100 cv34 carbs (the easiest to pressurize) all the info you need is here. http://makephpbb.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=32&sid=39b1190b45e24b1a4c1042fde77b9725&mforum=gixxer
All you need to do is to secure the connections between the carbs with epoxy and pressurize the float bowl vents. The carbs don't have to be modified internally in any way. If you use some other carbs check here for more info

R1100, say you're able to build a big enuff airbox to include the carbs in there, would that be the same stuff?

Nope. The "secret" to get blow trough turbo systems to work well is to get dynamic pressure in the float bowls. The float bowl vents are connected to the pitot tube located in the charge pipe between the turbo and the plenum chamber. The opening of the pitot tube is aimed toward the airstrem. This way the fueling gets self regulating. If you increase the boost, the airflow increases and the float bowl pressure increases and this forces more fuel into the engine. If you build a box around the carbs you just get static pressure. The boost pressure into the carbs and float bowls would be the same. With the pitot tube arrangement the float bowl pressure can be higher the boost pressure. Man that was a lot of pressure :) I hope someone understood.

I have a 91 R1100 with a mitsubishi turbocharger. It has been running with a turbo since 1999 and it is just INCREDIBLE! It puts out 320 hp to the backwheel when charging at 1.5 kilos and it is impossible to explain how powerful it really is! When the turbo kicks in it will raise the frontwheel even in top gear and you really should be an experienced biker (or VERY careful..) to handle all that power!
Building a turbocharged engine is really not very expensive as long as you can do the work yourself. Putting in appr. $ 2000 will give you most of what you need. I include a picture of my own "beast". Good luck!
