Roadstar 1600cc Turbo 1 Year, 5 Months ago  
Hi guys! I'm new to the clinic and wanted to show my ride. Had this baby for couple of years and turbocharged it last winter. Works great and the power is good except for a little dip in the enrichment at low end. It's easy to fix but haven't done it yet. stock dynoed 54hp / 127Nm from the tire. Now it made 92hp / 171Nm from the tire, 108hp from the engine with 0,6bar boost. Loved the bike when i got it, now I love it a littlebit more

Damn that thing is crazy looking! That's amazing you could do that. If you have more details on what all you did I'd be interested. That's too cool!

Thanks! Yeah it's pretty quick for a big bike. The best speed starts from 80km/h, then you feel the constant pull all the way to the limiter. And the consumption is ridiculously low... 4,02 litres on 100km. Don't know how to turn it into mpg. I allready got lost to a website that sells H-profile piston connecting rods and stronger pistons Maby next summer i'll get 120-150hp, that would be enough.

The clinic seems really good forum compared to finnish pages, do to the lack of roadstar owners here in Finland.

I can give you parts list and what you need to do. Its gonna take a lot on pipe cutting and welding, thats the time consuming part. Also it would be good if you have somebody who has turboed some carburetor machine.
