And 'prime' really isn't designed for running under load especially with a turbo!

What is it designed for then? Its a tap, a hole leading into a pipe. 

Works percectly fine for nearly every turbo bandit out there.

Have a guess - clue's in the name!

How do you fill empty float bowls when you have a vacuum tap ?

Doesnt mean its not fine using as an on . Its the same hole in the tap just turned to bypass the vaccume part. Flows exactly the same rate (because its the same hole into the same pipe) as it does going through the vac part when engine is running. The whole point of a vac tap is to help stop carb overflow when a bike is stood up not running. Bandit taps actually flow slightly better on prime because the path is straighter and smoother.

In answer to your question, you can still use the standard tap, but only on prime, and without the vac line. 

You dont have a vaccume anymore to suck the tap open, you get the opposite of it being blown shut.

Worth remembering though you have no reserve function on prime, and you run out of fuel pretty quick with a turbo. I may have fallen foul of that a couple of times myself :D

Perfect thank you, that’s exactly what I was looking for.

 

ive never done a turbo bike before or ridden one so still not sure what to expect, I’m hoping for a nice surprise.

does really run out of fuel that quickly?

They do when ridden hard, mine regularly does as well as about 5mpg

Steady away and off boost they are almost as good as standard
