  1. Turbo kit produces 8.6 sec strip times

    American performance specialist Velocity Racing has produced a turbo kit for the GSX-R1000 (reviewed this week) which claims to boost the already healthy 190-ish horses to an eye-watering 250.

    The company claims that, outside the kit provided, the only mechanical mod required is heavier clutch springs.

    Its own test mule, which also features a lengthened swingarm, recorded a dragstrip time of 8.63sec at 170mph (273kmh).

    Priced at US$3995 (approx $4500) the kit is one of a series the firm has produced for current sports tackle.

  2. Can anyone remember seeing a supercharger kit they were making for the Gixxer. I think I saw it in Rapid. Have to pull them out later and try to find it. It was cool cos it was different. Different is always good. :cool:
