Great choice!  The lower compression and bigger cc than the GSXR motor works
really good on a turbo. If you are going to ride it on the street, get the
mikuni flat slide carb. It has an idle circuit and is real streetable. We
built one with a Mr Turbo kit and it runs 8.60's (8" swing arm extensions)
in the quarter without ever going into the motor.

You should be able to get 180+ hp out of it on pump gas with no problem.

Anyone here ever turbocharge a 1200cc Bandit?  Mr. Turbo shows on their
website a kit for it.  Has anyone heard anything good or bad about it?

How about what's involved in making it survive?  Clutch?  Drivability?

Any info appreciated.  Thanks!
