  1. Suzuki service manual says 293ml per leg, and oil level 192mm. If you find this thing called Google, it will help you a lot. Type in "Suzuki GSX 750 ES manual" and hit that search button.
  2. Thanks! I was thinking 1.5-1.75", just so that I could use a v-band clamp. 1.5" it will be then.
  3. So, I was just wondering what diameter link pipes people are using on draw through exhaust? From the 4-to-1 collector to the turbine housing flange that is. It seems to me that 2" would be overkill, as the distance is quite long and you can't lose a lot of speed from the exhaust gases as the temperature will drop dramatically over the length of the exhaust tract, therefore not giving the turbine the energy it needs.
  4. Today I picked up this T25 from a Saab 9000 for 20 euros, I'll have to see how it fits in there when I get all the stuck bolts undone and can clock the housings. This one should be easy to convert to carbon seal, we'll see...
  5. I just got an e-mail from a turbo service company, he said that if he remembers correctly, the Garrett T2-T28, TO3 and Toyota CT26(and CT20 with CT26 dimensions) would be the ones you could retrofit carbon seals quite easily. With enough machining and mismatching I'm sure many others would too, but that's a whole different road. Vintage Rajays and such are ofcourse an option, but I'd rather not spend a lot on the first attempt. Later on, if it works, and when the motor would be able to take more of a beating, then it would be possible to upgrade to a bigger and a more expensive unit.
  6. I found a Garrett T15 (it says so on the side, must be a GT15 as so the part number dictates) from my stash. Based on compressor maps and the rated power of the cars that had this, this might be a feasible starting point. Now if I could just find some info whether or not this can converted to carbon seal.
  7. Yeah, seems logical. And as there isn't any aid to performance, I see why they are built the way they are.
  8. Thanks! The problem with the turbo is, as you stated earlier, to find one small enough. And to find one that can be converted to carbon seal. BTW, is there something special about these draw through manifolds been always really boxy? Or is it just for the ease of manifacturing?
  9. Beats me, for some reason that Harley Keihin-copy has an accelerator pump. Can't see what good it would do, it would just enrichen the mixture. I thought you earlier implied that you need to flood the plenum by squirting fuel with the accelerator pump when starting, that's why I mentioned primer pumps. I need to go through my stash of turbos to find one that's closest to a T2 so I can mock things up on my frame.
  10. That's what I had in mind when I thought about the cv carb; it could possibly make the bike more streetable... Plus they are selling these knock off Keihin 40mm cv carbs here new for 240€, and these have an accelerator pump too. Could you use a manual primer pump with a check valve connected to the plenum to aid in starting if a carb wasn't equipped with a pump?
  11. My bad, those were supposed to be two separate questions. Cv carbs in general in a draw through system, and flat or round slide carbs with accelerator pumps vs. ones without.
  12. Regarding the original question, how about using a cv carb? What about accelerator pump, how drastic is the difference to a carb without one?
  13. That does sound nice! The problem really seems to be finding a small enough turbo that could be converted to carbon seal type. I saw a T25 from a Saab 9000, perhaps buy one from where this world wide flu came from and maybe one could fit a cheap carbon seal back plate on to it? That map doesn't seem that much off, flow and pressure ratio are nearly acceptable. Ofcourse it is very unlikely that a chinese turbo would perform as that map indicates.
  14. Thank's for the info. The reason for the interest in draw through setups was the simplicity compared to fuel injection and the placement of the turbo. And of course the fact that it is truly old skool. Power increase isn't that relevant, the puny 750cc engine is not the best foundation for big power. I saw someone using an IHI RHB5 VJ11 in a draw through setup, there was no mention of changing the seals. Maybe he did change them, or he has a smoke machine. Just the idea of a system without added fuel or scavenge pumps and a semi-hidden turbo is intriguing.
  15. I´m very aware that there are many topics and projects that have something to do with draw through turbo systems, but I was just wondering if there are some basic guidelines to how it should be done? Carb size for example; what size works best for given cc? Street or drag? Carb style; flatslide or round? Does a cv carb work at all? I´ve seen people use S&S Shortys, Mikuni HSR 42´s and whatnot. What would you recommend, and why? This week I´ve been mostly interested in a streetable carb for a 750cc bike, do you have any recommendations?
