is there a k8 600 turbo kit or does it need to be custom? What all would be needed to make a turbo system work?

There are one or two kits that I can remember, but they're in the 4-5K range. Plus a custom setup would be more for lack of a better term customized to your needs.

If you can fab custom pipes yourself, your better off building your own kit. Save a LOT of money. I built my own kit but didn't finish it and decided not to. now i'm selling the parts. The bazzaz would work great with turbos imo.

If you just route it into the airbox it should work. I would have to look at the oil pan as well to see where it should go.

Ok so your saying use the stock air box and run a pipe to that from the turbo? Then have someone make a header to fit and connect the oil line from the oil pan to the turbo?

Exactly but I like that surge tank better. I don't know how much pressure the stock plastic will take.

If you are going turbo don't even bother with a stock airbox. You NEED an aftermarket intake, a long with a whole mess of aftermarket parts.

Look at Velocity's site. I'm pretty sure they have a lot of info on there.NLR also is really big on turbo's for Hayabusa's. Mainly that trick ass computer system Sebastian runs. Everybody in AMA is running Barry's(velocity) turbo kits and being competitive in the field. Shit even try calling them and having them explain it to you. That's what the tech's are paid for anyway.:welcome

I would sell the 600 and just get a 1K if power is your goal. Here is a turbo set up and the guy made less than what my bike puts down stock. Waste of money imo. Trade your bike in and get a liter bike if you need more power.

I would never want to ride a turbo bike anyway. Linear power delivery and turbo power are two very different things. I would hate to be mid corner and get unexpected boost. Get a 1k and do a big bore kit if you need power. 200 hp and its linear, imagine that?

^^ right thats exactly why I said get a 1k crate motor setup.

turbo bikes are cool when they are making 3,4,500rwhp lol but other than that there really is no need.


even if i wanted to crush everything on the highway... Id just hit my 1000 with a 50-75 shot and that would take care of that! LOL

I agree on getting a 1k or 1k motor swap. But it's like people turboing a honda sohc motor than a dohc motor(honda car talk).

Stock airbox wont work with turbo. Get one custom made or get the velocity plenum (I like the velocity). Tap a hole for oil drain in the pan on a high spot I think. So the oil can drain freely. If you get a turbo header that sits the turbo low, you'll need to get some sort of oil scavenger pump. If the header sits high, you wont need one but you'd probably have to cut your radiator for space to fit. That's the info I researched for mine. I have a how-to instructions to install but it's for a hayabusa. It's the same concept for other bikes though.

stock airbox is no good, get a proper plenum. if the engine is the same setup as the 1000 there is a plug on either side of the engine that is a direct oil gallery from the oil pump for ur oil feed, give richard from rcc turbo's a call he knows his shit and is very helpfull. he may also suggest some specs for turbo sizes for the 600. power delivery at low boost on a 1000 is very smooth, but due to the lack of bottom end torque on a 600 id say the delivery will be a bit harsher. if u love the twisties just sell it and buy a 1000, also i talked with bazzaz about a computer for a turbo setup and they said they are NOT boost compatible...

that turbo 600 on the dyno is not very impressive, too big of a turbo it sounds like, half an hour to come on boost then 2 seconds till redline....

ITS BETTER TO BURN OUT THAN TO FADE AWAY.........
