hello everyone, let's talk turbo's

Hi, I'm based on the other side of the pond. I been riding my turbo bandit for nearly 3 years now and have covered over 12,000 miles. She is kicking out 320 at the back wheel and will wheelie off the throttle off the clock. It's ready for a new gearbox but i think she has done really well considering I've tripled the horse power. I have a 1050 speed triple and have just had it super charged but is crap compared to the turbo! It has been a very expensive lesson for me to learn I can tell you. I'm about to send my triumph off to holeshot racing (jack frost is the one who turbo'd my bandit) to get the super charger taken off and a turbo fitted. I do all my own spannering on my bikes and am quite happy to strip and re-build and engine but this level is beyond me. I noticed turbospeed111 write up and was very impressed. turbo speed triples are like rocking horse poo in the UK, so I'm trying to find out about the engines longevity? your site has the most info I have come across! ( Guess there must be a fair few loony tunes like me in Chicago?) I know this is a bit of a daft question as it's down to build and boost but any help would be grateful?

Best advice

you want longevity? Don't add a turbo

want speed, power and cool kid card = turbo that bitch out and expect to be rebuilding them often

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .
