No not yet but I hope to have all the fab work done by the end of the week. Then once the new front end gets here it just needs to be plumbed and wired. So Ihope it is running soon.

Well I am allot closer now. Most of the fab work has been finished got the sportster front end on. All I have left to do is build a mount for the front caliper , build a mount for the rear drum , send the turbo out for a rebuild (found some fins bent on the compressor wheel) , rebuild the carb , time the mag , and plumb it. So it is getting close.

Here are a few new pics.

My 0,02:
First off, really love what you`re doing. Can`t wait to hear how it runs!

I wouldn`t let the "suck through an unsealed turbo is not a good idea" worry me the slightest bit. At least not with this turbo, if it`s not worn out. I used to run a KKK very similar to yours (same cast number except for a few digits) taken of a German Ford van. Ran it on my shovel, sucking throuh an S&S Super E, and never experienced my bike smoke from oil being sucked out of the turbo. I only ran it for a few months (it was to small!), and it may start doing so over time, but KKK`s are good turbos and I bet it will work if not worn out.

My worries are: Won`t it build up to much pressure without a plenum chamber (old rule of thumb says plenum should be 1,5 times the volume of one cylinder)? Meaning that the wastegate will be open most of the time, and leave you with very little going into the cylinder. I believe you`ll have to set the wastegate very high to counteract this.

The oil system: It`s very simple to get oil to and from the turbo on an old HD, but on a brit, I am having difficulties figuring out how to make it work. If you take a T off the return line and dump the oil back into the sump you could probably experience wetsumping.
To me this is way the most interesting thing to learn about. Would you please be kind enough to let us know what you experience, and if it works properly, and take some close up photos of the whole lubricating system (yeah I want to do the same thing to my Beeza)

Last, and maybe most important. I would definitely put an airfilter on. Incoming debris could play havoc with those turbine blades spinning at +100K rpm`s.

All the best of luck with your project, and DO keep us posted. Every little bit of info would be beneficial!

An old scan of my first turbo setup. Very simple and experimental

you got lucky with your turbo choice, it has a carbon thrust washer allowing for fuel to be drawn through with no issues on the turbo shaft seals.

my first experiment was with a garrett gt-15, no carbon washer, I was ignorant of what those were it lasted all of 200 miles or less.


this is the new set up,

which I already sold to a guy running the All Harley Drags , its a warner-ishi rhb-52, with carbon thrust washer, internal wastegate set at 8#, my motor is a big bore 10.5:1 Nallin Performance creation, in second gear, it was like riding a bike on ice, or drag bike rolling burnouts through the gears = damn fun sporty.
I recommend spending the dough for the autologic digital wideband, its small in size but very important tool for tuning the air fuel, my display was mounted on the bars and was easy to read/see when you needed. This picture shows proper vac. on boost guage at idle and 12.3 A/F = happy, at WOT I had it tuned to 11.5.

That T-100 he's building will spool hell out of the turbo he has, his first ride will produce a grin so big his face will hurt for days.

Pretty sure it was without a seal if the one on the T-100 is without one as they are very close to being similar. Also remember having knowledgeable people tell me it would never work when fabricating the system, because there was no seal in this kind of turbo coming off a cheap diesel engine. Anyway if it`s sealed it was certainly luck, as I didn`t know shit, and just picked the cheapest one available


That system of yours looks awesome (both of them). Way better than my approach, and I noticed how you seem to have flowed the exhaust right the first time. Something I learned the hard way!

I did a lot of experimenting with blow through systems too, but if building today would definitely choose the suck through configuration

Is there anywhere I can read about your bike. If not, could you be persuaded into writing an article

ooooops, I boo-booed on the brand name
innovate lc-1, and then you can buy the round guage or the flat digital one I used. I found mine on ebay for 450 or so for everything and I chose it because its very small and could easily be used on the bike.
heres a link to an ebay unit I just found, would have to seach for the displays of choice.
http://cgi.ebay.com/Air-Fuel-Ratio-Meter-Innovate-Motorsports-LC1-02_W0QQitemZ150298464796QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item15 0298464796&_trkparms=72%3A570%7C39%3A1%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C2 40%3A1318&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14
notice it in the picture, tie wrapped to the frame backbone.

OK bringing this back up. I started it for the first time tonight. Man it sounds mean. The carb still needs some work And I still need to plumb the water injection but It is timed and starts on the first kick every time. Witch is a surprise to me the motor hasn't been started in over five years. I have a few loose ends to tie up in the next few day and hope to get some ride time this weekend. I will try to get some video of it this weekend and post it up.

Awesome man, building a 500 myself that I have toyed around with the idea of boosting. I may have missed it but what carb are you running as a draw through?

i've had a turbo'd CB900f and for a very brief period (before i blew the sheeet out of it) had a turbo'd Laverda. amazingly addictive, boost is.

the trump looks tits, hope you'll be able to post a hooligan inspired video when it's moving under it's own power...

A question for TurboRoadster. Isn't 10.5:1 awfully high for a turbo motor? At 10.5:1 under 8 pounds of boost it would seem like over 13:1 to the motor. How did you keep the pistons together under such detonation (or are you running straight Cam2 or something)? I'm still working on a CB750 turbo project but I'm concerned about the pistons. The only good forged ones are 10.25:1 but that's too much static CR for a street-driven bike with more than say 2-3 pounds of boost to survive long.
