1984 Kawasaki GPz750 Turbo with TD04 Turbine. First run
My Kawa did not like the Hitachi HT10B turbo so I granted it the permission of installing
a TD04 turbo, from a Subaru WRX 2004.
Well, few days after starting to stuff the larger turbo in the bike it runs pretty good. :) 3 inch
Exhaust pipe grunts like it should and
turbo whining is apparent. All in all a
successful upgrade. I drove it soon after the video and it blasts :) Way
fun!! :) Now it is only to find a unsuspecting Hayabusa and blow the
fairings off it ;)

hemrickperformance.com 2007 Ultra 103 ci with Nitrous races Softail 113 ci with a turbocharger on Teresi Dyno Drag. Located at HB Spokes

The Softail red lighted w/9.554 at 133.20 mph --- Ultra ran 9.816 at 128.10
mph. The bike and rider are weighed and the frontal area is calculated and
entered into the Dyno
computer which determines the amount of resistance to apply to each Dyno drum. More resistance is
applied for a heavier, bigger bike to simulate as if the bikes were
actually racing on a track.

Fixing the Bobcat tire with some FIRE
The bobcat tire went flat and de-beaded off of the rim. Being a long
weekend with no tire-shops open and needing to get the ole bobcat back up
and running we had to turn to a method I saw on the discovery channel years
ago after failing at getting the tire re-beaded with standard brute force.
