2 juice or not 2 juice

I'm pondering the idea, they make a single and a double turbo 4 the 10 and I don't know if I should go with one of them or just put some juice on it I have heard that Kawasaki bike don't like the turbos that well and going with the juice (wet or dry) is the better way 2 go. Let me know your thoughts please

I LUV turbos. My friend and I are considering fabbing a single exhaust mounted turbo for a zx 11 we have sitting around. It's a relatively new technique and has shown some good results on cars, which is why we're thinking about trying it on the zx 11. I would go with a turbo any day of the week over n o s. Don't know if you have the ability, but you can even get turbos for next to nothing off of ebay and fab your own kit if you have the knowledge and walk for only a little more than a nice nos kit.

I got 204hp to the wheel on a 30 shot.....I beat a zx14 with full system power commander and no flies......3rd gear I Catch him and pass him like he is missing gears.

I'd say juice it...we've had good luck with them so far

I think there's no arguing a turbo bike will whoop practically anyting if you can get the power to the ground and you have a setup that makes the bike manageable.....

but what you're asking is not a fair comparison. the question you need to ask is how deep are your pockets....not nos or turbo...

Turbos aren't good for corners. That discussion is in another thread. I would rather have nitrous. I like my dry kit, but wet is capable of more power and is easier on the tuning. With a dry kit you have to run the pcIII rich to compensate for the nitrous, the wet doesn't. Wet is more of a pain to plumb on a bike. If I had it my way, I would have a supercharger.

Anything can run with nitrous. That's to easy, plus filling it back again and again... Turbo is the way to go. If you have a turbo your are not going to the racetrack for sure. A good custom set up is power always, all the time, no waiting for refills. 200 HP with a simple set up is easy to reach.
