Need torque, lower top speed and reliability at VERY high altitude!
Let me set the challenge - I'm entering the Raid De Himalaya and building a buggy to do it in. I bought a 2009 low mileage ZX10r European Spec engine complete with everything, including the clock and keys...I'll be racing at 20,000ft. I need:
Max 120 mph top speed (assume rear wheel rolling distance remains same as standard bike)
Reliability - strongest chain and sprockets I can get
Has anyone turbo charged this engine and what where the costs/gains
It is all standard at the moment, but I'm free to make any mods, happy to spend up to $2,000, but not willing to compromise reliability.
Would REALLY welcome your input and thoughts - Tom
