Turbo Gen 1

Came across this Gen 1 at my Dyno blokes shop on Friday....285HP

The silly bugger(the customer), has still got the standard brakes and suspension.

I`d go a turbo in a heart beat, on a toy, but they`re too intrusive. Lets face it, you can`t hide that.

I`d aim for 180-200, max, no more.

Standard brakes? always amazes me how people will up the HP of a machine and not worry about the stopping ability - Scary but looks like a great job of fitting it.

I test rode a old GSX1100 back in the 90's with a turbo bolted on (looked similar to that), quick, very, very quick but had a clutch that nearly needed 2 hands to pull in

Who needs brakes, anyway?
They just slow you down.
