Definitely all good points. IMO, if you were actually going to do it, you'd need to put a lot of consideration into weather or not the stock internals are up for it and even if they are initially, how long would they last? I know it's been said on here before, that with small displacement engines like this (the post i'm referring to referenced a ninja 250 engine I believe, I think it was cbzdel maybe who said it) it's not really the cylinders or pistons that wear out and cause the engine to fail after x amount of miles, it's the myriad of small internal parts that do. He said most people get around 50-60,000 miles out of a ninja before engine failure. Of course, we all know that many examples are not seen as these are usually beginner bikes and get thrashed and crashed long before they're time is up, but basically IIRC the jist was under normal operation and circuimstances you can expect around 60,000 miles from a 250 engine before needing a rebuild or replace the engine/bike.I understand where you are coming from. It's going to take good money to do it. Custom turbo kit isn't the hard part. The tuning is going to be tricky. What sort of aftermarket tuning computer would you have to use to compensate that much extra fuel? What about injectors and clutch? Transmission?
Thats actually the turbo I was looking at. With a small intercooler i figured it would do the trick!http://www.ecotrons.com/Small_Engine_RHB31_VZ21_turbocharger.html
some one should try to rig a small turbo it will probably make 10-15 hp But that would be awesome
It really depends on some key factors. For example, what is the max flow rate of the factory injectors?I think turbo kit can be made like under or around 1000 bucks :O
It would be the same as stopping now. I doubt the system would add that much as far as weight is concerned.Since I have never rearched this before, what kind of gains could you safely anticipate if it all worked out correctly?
What about the braking system? Once you get this thing going your going to have to be able to stop it..
