This turbo really hits the spot, I love it BUT standard sorry my early wobbles etc leave a bad memory. I still believe the fairing doesn't help, when I remove mine the bike feels fixed when its fitted the wind does effect the bike. Unfortunately its like removing a leg so I keep mine on and respect the bike.

BLOODY great choice. What a machine and that Turbo............don't get me going?


Everyone said they wobble around 130 or 140 so I put a short rear tire on it to give it a bit more rake and trail like Kawasaki did on the 1980 with a 19 " front wheel. Steering damper also helps. ATP race them a Bonneville back then and found it unrideabe at 179 with the stock fairing but a racing 1/4 fairing let it run 197...of coarse this was with forged pistons and big boost. I think the area below the headlight causes lift.

The first 250 turbos were the standard silver blue with a Log pipe......the last 250 were black with the Molly graphics and had a Spider 4 into 1 pipe. 25 were built in between the first and last 250 runs with the log pipe and black Molly paint and that is what mine is. I just liked the silver blue too and went with that.

How about a 750 turbo in a place across the pond?

I think the across the pond turbo 750 was just done :ohmy: , but I do have other turbo 750s in my upcoming bikes ;) . But I like to spread the wealth of qualified candidates out so you shouldn't see repeats of models to closely together.. :whistle:
Going bow hunting for deer in the morning so I will ( should) be up early and will make my comments in this thread on Octobers BOTM
