Turbo Charging Gen 1?


New Member
Has anyone ever turbocharged a Gen 1? I would love a fun project like smacking a turbo on my 04 FZ1, but I havn't seen anyone do it before. People have done it to their 1999/2000 R1 which has almost the same engine so its possible. I just don't know how much boost a gen 1 can handle. If anyone has any info on this, that would be awesome.


I don't know about the GenI but I know for sure the GenII has been done successfully. I know that there is a thread here on the build. Look up our member Mr. Helmut He's the one who has done it and made himself a pretty wicked bike!
