New Look For The Turbo Bike!

I decided to change the look on my drag bike. Here she is:





I still need to add some graphics and hopefully find some sponsors!
Plenty of space of Sponsor Decals!!!

Yes, it has a bottle holder there and you can put air into the swingarm itself. The bottle holder was for a co2 bottle for the boost controller, but I relocated that bottle to the tail section. I may use that spot for a dry sump oil tank in the future (in other words if my bank account ever goes to the + side of 0 again )

6lbs of boost can run 8 but until I get my lockup clutch set I'm not turning it up. The motor is bone stock stock compression and everything. Hopefully next winter I'll be taking the motor out and doing rods pistons balanced and welded crank and studding the cases.

The bike is already faster than me and I have a lot of tuning yet to do before it reaches its potential.

Thanks. It actually is better to ride around than my 12 as long as you stay off boost. The zx12 had a sidewinder hanging off the right so tight right hand turns were no good.


So any of ya gonna go drag racing!!

12.62? I bet that drag tire will not hook up very well. 6 lbs of boost, you got to be running 2 lbs of air in a bead locked tire. That things gotta spin, what is it a 190 with the flatter surface? Mickey Thompson makes those right? Really sticky too.....

Stock Rim right now but it won't ever have a beadlock on it. It has a shinko 190 on it right now I have a micky waiting for testing to finish.
12.62 is about right
If the leave isn't right it will spin like crazy for the first couple of gears at the track.

Don't worry too much about my setup ask some people who know me I got some tricks.

Put it in 3rd, redline line it and dump the clutch?




I started in 2nd on my GSXR750 drag bike I had. 10.23 is the best I could get out of a 1991 stock with open exhaust and K&N air filters with a 6" stretch.

The bike has a 2-step(new for this year) and last year in early testing went 1.3X 60' time.

RSD Opens at around 2 but I won't get up there until after work at about 7 or so.

Good deal. I work till 6. Only thing I hate, is if you don't get up there before they open, you get the shittiest seats.
