Depends on which mid controls you are talking about, I know that the rizomas will not clear. Not sure about the HD ones. I know guys with the R have put turbos on their bikes.

I'd like to know as well. I have an 05 A model with the Trask kit and was thinking of maybe converting to mids.

Thanks, Ed

Trask turbo with mid controls.

I've been trying to attach some photo's of my bike but I'm having problems. Anyway when I contacted Trask about the mid pegs with the turbo they said that the exhaust pipe would not interfere when riding the bike, that's not the case at all. The pipe burns the f#%k out of your leg and real bad when at a stop if you put your foot down so you've got to keep your foot on the peg and cock your leg out. Also you have to ride with the edge of your heel on the peg or you melt the back of your boot off. Anyway my mechanic and I made a new pipe that runs down the same way as the HD one did then runs straight along under the mid controls and now its great. Also I had over heating problems when riding hard so I went with pure coolant and removed the tin grills from the viper radiator cover, now it's OK. I'll keep trying to post the photo's

Mids are no problem with turbo, if fact are probably better. You would be advised to use shields, but they need more air space between the pipe. There is a post & pictures here somewhere.
