I hope you do not have a stock motor or it will not last long with that kind of boost!

Damn, Kaz! You've got to be a special kind of crazy to be willing to throw a leg over something like that and let it rip...

Can someone tell me what that thing is?? And I wonder what it looks like on a bike all put together....because from those pictures...it doesn't look like it belongs on a bike...IMO. It almost looks like it needs some kind of cover on it, to cover up the wires and such...I don't know...just my opinion....

It's a turbo that looks like it was installed by a blind man with no arms. :D

A Big Bore is done by increasing the internal size of the motor. A turbo is basically a big hair dryer that forces hot air into the motor.

Wow. . in the 4th photo is the same oil pressure gauage I put on my neighbor's 1976 FLH.

Good luck with that beast. I hope it holds together for you.

I know I know.....what I mean is...I've seen the Turbo in person.. (i.e. Max's Bike) and I think the Turbo's are awesome looking!

I've never seen a picture of a Big Bore, nor searched for a picture..so have no idea what they look like. However, somehow, I don't think that is a Big Bore.

What is the Technical Name of the gadget Kaz installed?

I'm glad you asked first because I was thinking the same thing. I guess with that kind of power though, who cares what it looks like!:notworth:

Most big bores just look like a normal motor as the boring is done on the inside. The technical name for the gadget Kaz installed is a turbo. It's just a one-off custom install. The turbo is standard turbo, likely of a larger size than the Trask, but the plumbing is probably all custom made.

Amy, it's a turbo - just a big one, not the Trask system you've seen. Engine exhaust spins it (just like a blow dryer) to 'grab' more incoming air and stuff it into the engine, allowing you to add and burn more gas and get more power. Also to melt and blow stuff up.

Ohhh, I see. I guess I wasn't aware there were multiple types of turbo systems for the VROD.

I mean, to each his own..and I have respect for the fact that Kaz could install that thing! It looks crazy! Rough....but crazy!!!

I would like to see a picture of the set up, with the camera pull away from the bike some....

Oh well, if Kaz likes it...thats all that matters!
