    Has any one else seen this pic?



    Looks like fun! I can't find any more info about it though.....Somewhere in Europe I assume.



    I know someone one here was talking about putting a Turbo on the little Thumper!



    I wonder how much HP's it puts to the rear wheel?

    OMG that's ridiculous, in a good way! Haha I've entertained thoughts of turboing my DR200. It could get hilarious when you pull up next to some guy on a brand new 250 Motocrosser and smoke him in a drag race on your 15 year old budget dual sport lmao! I can't help but think though, that if someone were to pull off a turbo TW, the motor wouldn't last very long at all. But who cares I guess if you could do it to like an old 91 that you got for 800 bucks lol ;-)

    Does any one know if you have to jet the carb esp for a turbo? I always wondered that even for automotive applications, if you need the main jet's etc even larger than normal to compensate for the turbo?

    Turbos add air. You would need to devise a way to add fuel as well. At least that is how it works with cars!

    Same here! Traded a dead Kawasucki KZ750 for my '94t. They thought they were getting a great deal. They wouldn't recognize her now, and I wouldn't trade for a newer year if someone offered.
