Turbo Bike?

Any one here got any experience of turbo bike's? I'm looking for a bit of an interesting project(my ZX6R starts/stops and handles which is a bit boring!!)I havn't had a project bike in ages and am thinking about aquiring a cheap ZX9R or ZZR1100 and putting together a longterm turbo project for the road, anyone here done it or run one?

The '6R is gone,long live the ZX4/7-R!(been reliably informed this wont work,maybe a zzr6 engine?!)this project is only 2 years overdue...

turbos can be very expensive. Figure what you feel is going to cost you. Be generous. Don't lie to yourself. Now DOUBLE that figure. Still want to do a turbo?

Definately! It's 'longterm', the cost isn't so bad to bear when it's spread out.There's no rush and lots of turbo kits on Ebay!The point is that it's a 'Project' bike.I am aware that Turbo bikes can swallow money as can any tuning/custom project but where would we be if we all just gave up because it cost money or was a bit of an effort?

It may take a long time, it may cost a lot of money. But when its done you'll love it. Mine is still coming along very slowly. Hopefully be riding it next summer.
