Hey guys its time to start this build i think and this thread will hopefully be a good center for discussion on it and a cesspool of ideas that will spawn one hell of a BRP i hope. sorry to all you droolers out there this build will be as i go and acquire parts and ideas along the way.
First things first the patient will be an 05' xr650r i picked up converted and plated 75% decorked and barely enough wiring to call it legal.
Now the plan....
USD forks conversion
RAD MFG hubs and excel wheels to replace the talons. red hubs and spoke nipples on black excels 5" in the rear (I will be selling the talon/excel combo 1000$ look for FS ad)
RE-wound stock stator for 200ish watts ran through a mosfet reg/rec for DC power and BATT (reasons as follows)
HID lighting from BUELL xb12r projectors in a custom made headlight housing i will be fabbing. Im thinking this will end up looking somethink like a transformer from the front lol
GT15 TURBO looking for tripple digits on the ponies for this which will require some engine mods to be determined exactly what later. most likely carrillo rod and port polish with hot cams 1 i think as the turbo will make up for the top end.
FUEL INJECTION via microsquirt but that will be wayyyyy down the road and most likely on the second variation of turbo kit. besides they are out of stock till at least aug.
IT starts I have already procured the USD crf450r forks and tag triples w/ conversion bearing to make the triples plug and play to the xrr head.
I have also procured the gt1544 to start fabing for that little beauty. I think i will be installing it towards the rear of the bike right at the beginning of the muffler as there is enough room and moves the weight farther back as the BRP is a bit nose heavy as it is.
my first thoughts were to mount it as close to the head as possible for ease but the turbo i have still runs the gt12 inlet flange and not the t2 flange which would be perfect to fab a manifold for 1.5" runners right down its throat next to the left radiator. but alas that may end up in BRP-T 2.0
So as you can see nothing is started yet she still runs strong the bike has a presumable 3000ish miles on her and looks like it very pristine waiting to be modded. For starters ill be doing the USD fork conversion while im doing more testing for the turbo cooling system and getting the rest of my required parts and pieces.
So any ideas or suggestions shoot em out lets make this beast scream
LOOKING FOR!!!! PM me on any of this!
any stock vehicle intercooler that the pressure runners are 7-9" long and no more than 2" thick that i can cut down and make an intercooler for.
front axle w/ nut CRF450 06' or any year that will fit. hell if you have a front 21" wheel with it even better at the right price.
gt12 turbo inlet flanges and exit flanges.... if not ill just make em itll give me an excuse to use the plasma cutter more
and like i said any suggestions along the way.
