    GSX750EF FRAME SHORTENED & SEAT

    FIBERGLASS IS MAGIC. I still don't know how still people use metal bases for seats. Fiberglass molds to everything, 1/4 of the weight of metal....Same price...Only that it STINX!!! Thanx amigoz

    Gsxr1100k fork oil?

    Forks all done end of May and are handling very well.

    Why do you have to put them on? Is it an inspection thing? If so can you just put them on over the plate with longer bolts and pass it as stock and have it non functioning? I have the later PDF units and gutted them when I did the cartridge emulator upgrade. They are there, but do nothing but keep oil in the forks now.

    Gsxr1100k fork oil?

    1100K forks have cartridges as standard. I have some Maxton fettled forks in my 11K , but they where done to race spec for the young me and are a bit harsh. On my "to do list" is to see if I can fit the cartridges from a set of Showa 750J forks into the Kayaba 1100K forks. Forks rarely get the attention they need to keep them working well, but a good clean , new bushes and oil goes a long way (bushes usually well past there best after 10,000 miles, any speckling in the grey ptfe coating causes extra friction and harsher action). If you can manage it take one of Reactive Suspensions courses and rebuild your own forks while there, Gareth is a top bloke and will have all the bits for the rebuild ready on the course if you let him know. Did the forks on my TL1000 with him, noticeably different (better) afterwards, and learnt loads in the process.

    Turbo project continues...

    Thanks for the help. Im pretty sure the mk1's are not vaccum operated. But was concerned about flow rates.. i may look at an inline option. Not happy about paying the pingel prices.. I aint chasing 370hp so the internal will probably be ok.. if an external pops up at a good price maybe... im hoping for 250hp ish Not much to show pic wise yet, got the lump back into the bandit frame late last night, so hopefully progress will start building momentum.. This is where i was more or less with the say what now!? project, the plan is to transplant all the running gear over to the B12, i am tempted to stick a 240 or 280 rear on while im at it, so going to measure up and look at my options there while playing.. And i have accumulated quite a lot of bits to be playing with so plenty to be getting on with.

    Thanx Swirl. And yep, that would be the final touch, but I'm not going to invest anymoer...AT LEAST FOR THE MOMENT! And the MOT in Spain is the worst mafia in the planet.

    Gsx750et wheel swap

    +1 on that You may need someone to make a small sleeve for the bottom yoke, as I think the gs stem about 2mm smaller than the bandit one at the bottom. The b6 rear wheel will go straight in the gsx swing arm with some spacers it's been done a lot so someone may have the sizes.

    Yes I have read that they are hard to set up. Was just after some basic settings really.

    Looks great as is, as Davecara said beefier forks and 17" wheels the finishing touch

    Gsx750et wheel swap

    Get the ET stem pressed into bandit yoke- simplest way to do it....

    Gsx750et wheel swap

    Hey guys, I've got a standard 750et and was wondering what wheels swapped straight into the standard forks and swingarm, maybe slabby wheels? I've got b12 front end and a b6 rear wheel for it but was wondering if there was maybe something a it simpler, Cheers Alex

    What's the best main jet size, needle hight & mixture screw turns out to set some bst 40 mm carbs with pod filters on a 1100m motor. No room for a air box as it is fitted to a 1100 slabside.

    Idiots guide to turbos

    If its setup well you can keep the turbo spooled up and driving irrelevant of how much you open the throttle. Problem is the transition between off boost and on. I live in lincolnshire, we dont have a lot of straights, i do trackdays as well. The trick to going quick is not letting it spool down

    Hope you get it sorted. Im wary of filter removal

    Turbo project continues...

    re Blandit tap - is it vacuum operated? If so then it'll turn itself off when you get boost!............probably won't flow enough either! An external gate will give better control but mine still has an internal gate @ 370hp.............just saying like! LOL!

    Turbo will work fine with internal or external wastegate. We need pics.

    I cant help, but I do wanna see pics! I'm collecting bit to turbo my gsxr at the minute so I'll be following this with interest!

    Well pissed about with it this afternoon and breather was clear (and wasn't actually tight into the tank), fuel tap was brand new genuine parts last year . So tested flow through filter (just draining into a pot ) and it was a bit slow compare to no filter so binned it and replaced it with a inline brass hose joiner (had a couple lying around ) and possibly a placebo effect but it seems to start easier . Other than letting it idle to check for leaks I've not tested it fully . Hope its sorted. May or may not fit the quick disconnect once it arrives (may leave it till the next time I have the tank off, as its been off more times than a whores drawers this week).
  27. Hi guys. I took a while off this project. I did have a build thread on the old site, but list to the depths of the web now. Moved house, lots of renovating to do, young kids and picked up a nasty life changing injury so the bike (well.. pile of bike bits) was sat in mi old mans garage for a good 4/5 yrs... Dusted it off quite a while ago, but quite daunting coming back to a turbo project. Lost where i was with it all and with the chassis/fighter mods i was on with.. thought maybe go back N/A to simple the rebuild, but i have already fitted busa slugs in my block.. comtemplated selling as a project and buying something else, but done lots of reading to catch back up and went through my bits and i dont need much else so ploughing on.. Anyways blurb over, The bike is a B12 mk1. It was a 7/12 project, but i have got rid of the 750L frame for a couple of reasons. 1) Makes life easier, building a modded/turbo'd bandit than basicly a ground up bike squeezeing into the smaller frame, wjile afding the extra turbo stuff. 2) the riding position on the B12 will be much more comfy on my injured shoulder than the say what now!? 3) budgetts limited and i like to do the bits myself, im fancying quite a bit of frame modding than i can handle on a steel frame, but i need to rethink or farm all this out on the alloy frame.. Ok blurb seriously over. I have a little bit more chassis work before diving in completly with the turbo side, but as a start of my brain picking. Do i need a pingle fuel tap, or will the standard B12 tap be sufficient. My headers are a big hurdle at this point. The turbo is a TD04HL-15G. It has an internal wastegate. Are these any good to use, or should i seal it and fit an external? Sorry for the rant, and thanks for any and all help.
