Ever since I built this bike, I’ve been sold on super chargers ever since. For the daily street warrior/commuter looking for less then 350whp I’d suggest a blower over turbo any day of the week. INSTANT boost, and torque for days. Plus they just sound so damn good.Supercharging would be my ultimate goal
I like te idea of stroker maybe 220-240hp. Turbo is cool & bang for buck but how much is useable power or just ego/hp chaseing? I enjoy laying power down in straights turns & everywhere in between. I want to hold court everywhere not just a staight line. Seems half of piolets can't even wring out big hp #s in a straight line. They are doing the same thing just quicker by a bit.I have a mild 1397 in my bike and I love it. Hit the gas it moves out hard and no lag. But if you have a need for speed go turbo. Look in the turbo section I just did a rcc stage 1 for a friend and made 280 whp on pump 110 race gas. He’s into it for 10k that’s everything included. Really not a bad deal and runs great on the street. If you go all motor go with a mild 1441 call it good. But like boosted said going turbo is cheap per horsepower. Plus it’s easier to turn the bike up compared to a na bike where you would have to pull the motor and do bigger cams and other stuff for more power. Nitrous is fun but you will be the slow one in the group when the bottle runs out
I'm the opposite. I've had blower and turbo cars, currently have a blower car. It's fun to drive, but I'm looking forward to my next move, which will involve having a turbo car again.I know there is a major difference, but I've had both supercharged & turbo'd cars. If I had my choice, I'd have SC any day of the week. I suppose there was a reason Kwaka went supercharged and not turbo on the H2.
If I had some spare $$, I'd build a SC busa tomorrow.
The Op will be forever chasing his tail to keep ahead of the competition...these new liter bikes are literally rockets. IF Kawasaki decides to upgrade the ZX14R, that will put this all to bed.220 to 240.is not going to make you king of the hill for very long Strokers are not exactly the best thing for a long lived street bike
Nah.... the 14R ain’t going nowhere. Despite my disdain for Cowasaki it’s not a bad bike it just pales in comparison to the Busa IMO.I personally figure Kawasaki will ditch the ZX14R and expand their H2 line.
