Does anyone know of a turbo application for the post 2005 models?
I am not sure the clutch and drive train can stand much more torque.

Has anybody actually SEEN an LT turbo from these guys?

Has anyone even SEEN these guys? IRL not just a webpage. Since what they have to sell is Vaporware, are they even real?

Ghostracer,

Many thanks for that link! If they can build a clutch that can handle all that power, I could live with a 180hp LT though I expect the whole enchalada wold be quite pricey.

Regards,

Will

In my opinion, for what its worth.

Be nice to have a little more power from time to time, problem being, it would probably get me into more trouble than I need to be in. I've had stupid fast bikes (for their time) and am a little surprised I'm still here among the living.

A little more, say 10 to 25 horse power would be OK. Hang on a turbo, bigger injectors and maybe nitrous and you'll be over the top.

IMHO. LT has all the power needed in comparison to it's weight and driveability... It really is not a sport bike even though somebody who has been driving Harley Parkinson might feel like it :)
Yeah but wouldn't it be the most fun you've ever had with pants on?!?!? :dance:

Harley Parkinson....
MY GOD! The perfect name for those things!!!!

From time to time I think I would like a couple more ponies, though the LT really does have the right amount. Also, I think a turbo would really increase the FD failure rate. What I would really like for the LT, is to be able to push on a handle bar with out grinding a foot peg off.

Yep. Fun it might be, but still if I would be seeking for power I would start to build that from let us say Suzuki Hayabusa or something made for that. Most likely with the Turbo-equipped LT you would brake first something in the bike and then yourself.... But fun for a while - yes maybe :kaboom:
