off to a good start...ive been having wet dreams of owning a gl1000 or gl1100 for the past month or so. i want to have the ultimately powerful cafe... a gl1100 with dual turbos would be ultimately sick. could always supercharge, but i want the satisfaction of hearing two turbos spool up at 4000 rpm to redline =D
Thanks guys, just made the wife B-fast in bed and I am heading out to the shed. Hoosier, saw your build it looks sick. I may end up inheriting this bike and if i do it will get a treatment very similar to yours. Frame up re-do into Cafe. been lurking for a while on the naked wing site Just never had anything to post there yet. I have used the carving knife trick and it does a beautiful job on foam, just wrecked my last one on a sofa re-do and never got another, so I had t use a bread knife to do this one. I have polyester to smooth it out before the leather. Hey Von, if you look into these motors you'll see they run at about 50% potential, the first generation are tuned so mild that twin turbos is not that radical. the blocks could easily take it. That would be crazy. Liquid cooled, twin turbo, I don;t think I could ride it though. I would end up wrapped around a tree.Cheers,Maritime
And than go BOOM!
Take a look at the Naked Goldwings Forum. Lots of good ideas and info. AGB-1
Supercharging and turbocharghing have very different effects... Not saying its not possible, just tricky...
