And Welcome to the Forum!!!
Maybe eHarmony pointed you to this site?howdy,
I have a 2004 1250 turbo Roadster and a 1969 Suzuki T500 cafe.
I likes long walks on the beach and ......blah, blah, blah
the Roadster part is from it being a 1200R and the 1250 is the size of the motor now that it has Axtell cylinders and high compression steel forged pistons. Has stage 2 headwork from Nallin racing heads, has 585 red Shift cams, mikuni 42 and Thunderheart programmable ignition. The turbo kit is one I made based on a Warner-ishi RHB-52 and when I re-install it I will be using it "blow through" style now that I'm running the Mikuni .Maybe eHarmony pointed you to this site?
Lived in Conroe years ago. Probably about the same distance north of Houston as Friendswood is south. Well... maybe in 1977 when I was there.
Welcome, and what is a 1250 turbo Roadster?

don't have any, the only time on the dyno was an intro run w/o any timing changes or tuning and we really never got it running right, kept running out of fuel, but at 4k rpm's we were in the 89 hp range with 3 k more to go with the stock motor. when running properly it should have been in the 100+ and thats starting with a 74 hp stock motor. I do know in second gear it spun the 150 tire like it was on ice.Sounds like no slouch!!! Welcome!!
Post numbers/dyno sheets if you can!
I am indeed gonna re-install as a blow through system.So you going to blow-through the HSR42, right?
Have you got everything you need to do that - just asking, coz a long time ago I made my own home-brew blow-through turbo system for my old 1100 Katana with Mikuni RS slide carbs. Being my first attempt, it was an exponential learning curve!!!
If you need any pointers - just holler!
I've got an adapter that bolts to the face of the carb and heads, just be easy to make something to that.You will need a fuel pump - nothing big, just enough to give you more pressure than you will boost. You will also need a fuel pressure regulator that will keep fuel flowing at about a pound more than manifold pressure.
Definitely you must contact Mikuni and get a needle and seat set that will handle the higher fuel pressure - from memory ther are three different sets - do some enquiry, let me know.
Kuryaken make a nice billet piece (hypercharger kit, but individually orderable part no.) that clamps onto the back of the 42 and has a three-bolt pattern to which you can mount your custom fabbed plenum - might also want to check out thier breather set-ups and bracket to bolt through head breathers and secure carb!
Hope that get the ball rolling...and turbo blowing!
