Oh and new wide bars are on going to hang some little headlights on it and a little tail light for night missions. Got some bar end mirrors coming so I can see Barry's approaching and cut a track.

I love it! It's just so dam ridiculous with all that motor...yet time so well spent doing it.

The fact that you can't go to the shop, buy one, then ride out an instant badass makes it a fantastic project.

Hmm google says a GT2056V is commonly used on aftermarket motorcycle turbo applications. Mikuni's or turbo I'm struggling I've had this under the bench for years turns out it's not stuffed just carboned up.

Then again I don't know shit about turbos.

You are seriously considering adding a turbo to this already monstrously over powered machine? Why ever not?

In short yes. But would need to put engine in something else with 4 wheels been the main thing holding me back. It goes and works well at moment guess i should just be happy with that seeing as i cant fit it anywhere but above the engine without throwing the balance of the bike out.

Suppose it already has twice the power of a Citroen 2CV 

If anyone has a go kart laying around they want gone? Just saying....

Surely it would be better suited to one of these? If only they were as cheap as a real AU falcon....

Fitted 1.5 litre go-ped fuel tank today so has enough juice for around an hour of hooning.

I bought 2 but they end up been bigger then I was expecting so didn't tuck into the frame where I wanted them to go.

Bracket to mount it not Kimjon spec but it works. Also fitted an Air filter and strangely enough Headlights they look stupid but work quite well.

Fuel in the tank was from the bottle I was using it was full. Fuel lines are bit complicated but the fuel pumps 30 micron filter presented a bit of a head scratcher so this will do for Now so I don't kill the pump.

Can confirm it does the speed limit and has plenty more in it.

Really needs a Cvt now makes peak torque just as the clutch engages resulting in the first 3 or so meters on the back wheel, if you get your weight up front though it'll wheel spin till your bored.

Misses has admitted she's keen on one with a smaller engine. 50cc will be plenty for her will build hers so we can explore waiheke etc, she's bought an adults scooter that will be ideal. It's hanging upside down at present no need to adjust your screens.

Had a brainwave to solve the taking off without me dying issue, "Launch Control" Being a twin i've got 2 independent coils if i rig up a momentry button on the bars to ground one coil i can take off with 10 ish horsepower then engage beastmode once rolling, kind of a design disaster but i cant take the covers off with the engine in the frame as i put the bars around the engine to protect it if i came off. Turbo will have to wait (I will do it) till i cave and put this in something with suspension and possibly a numberplate.
