      I'm curious, where is the carburetor which would normally be upstream of the turbo. Or have you converted the bike to fuel injection.

          Ok so i finally got myself to do all maintenance needed for now. Things made this summer.
          I changed the rear shock, put in the 31 tooth pulley, revmaster, new stator and rectifier, changed redline fork oil (old was starting to smell like fish oil) and finally yesterday i changed transfer gear oil and engine oil. And i'm telling you, due to long change and pretty hard driving the engine oil was thinner than Lindsey Lohan and more black than Bill Burr's stand up comedy (wich i absolutely love).
          probably the reason why it sounded like somebody was doing riverdance with clogs inside my valve train in this heat. We've actually had historically long hot summer here in Finland. Over 30c for about 8 weeks and seems to continue.
          Next week we're riding to northern Norway with my friend. Can't wait to see the mountains again!
          from now on i'll do the maintenance more regularly, and use prime stuff for the bike. Price is double, but for now maintenance fixed everything that annoyed me. The soft forks work way better now and even in this heat the engine is relatively quiet with 10w-60 oil. I desided to try heavier oil since the turbo setup runs quite hot. Burned my knee also yesterday. I've started to think bigger oil cooler or even love jugs to bring the heat down a bit.
          So free tip to everybody, keep your maintenance regular. I let mine slip, and didn't even remember how good the bike can be when everything is in order!

                My friend pulling raingear on our way to Alta from Tromsso. Kept raining that day all the way, and there were multiple tunnel works slowing us down. First time i rode high enough to go above clouds. Coundn't see 15m in front of me. Still a beautiful ride!

                  Last pics from this trip. Love the mountains. After this trip i realised that i have to get roadwing for my bike. The bad roads were one big shocktest, and it bottomed out even with the heavy spring when in full load.
                  i bought a new foamfilter for the intake from Alta, since the old one was so dirty. Well when going full throttle while passing a car, my turbo desided to have it for lunch!
                  It sucked it flat and a very small peace went in. I threw the filter away and put the old one back. Cleaned the intercooler. No damage.

                    i went thru problems with starters also, on a 1700 2004, it turned out to be the OEM brush plate. careful inspection revealed that the brass plate that holds the brushes was cracking at the 90 degree bend, thus hindering amperage flow, i replaced it it new OEM, only to have same problem again a year later, so i went with an aftermarket brush set. Then i upgraded my battery/starter cables, and i starts B4 i let go of the button now.
                    im thinking the heat from too small cables caused failure. .

                      Beautiful photos... Thanks for sharing. Sometimes I forget what bright greens and deep blues look like... On the oil, just be sure whatever you use has a high enough ZDDP levels. [Most all typical oils don't... ]The flat tappets on these bikes require it, otherwise you'll eat through your lifters and cams in no time. I personally use Mobil 1 *V-Twin* 20w50. And I hear you about that blackness... I used to race a turbo Porsche and the heat from the turbo will cook the oil pretty well. Oil may seem pricey, but it's FAR less expensive than a motor rebuild.

                      Ride safe.

                        I got the bike dynoed after the changes. i may have to put the stock main jet, since it goes a little bit rich in high rpm. Still, stock 53hp/127nm from tire, turbo setup 92hp/170nm from tire, and after shaping the needle, revmaster +800rpm and 31tooth front pulley almost 99hp/194nm from tire. Very satisfied

                        https://vimeo.com/296413260 There's the link to dyno video

                          Can anyone recommend some heavy duty clutch plates? I'll change them due To small slipping with cold engine. Ebc is the only one I know so far that promises +20%. This would be enough but More would be even better. I have the barnett spring conversion with heaviest spring, but I didn't change the plates when I was at it

                            With your turbo you definitely want to go with the Barnet clutch spring; it's the strongest spring you can get and will stop any slipping. If your clutch plates are worn the OE Yamaha clutch kits are good. To the best of my knowledge it's the EBC spring that's 20% stronger than stock, I hadn't heard about their clutch plates being 20% stronger too, but I could be wrong.

                              Call Barnett and tell them your application...they may recommend kevlar or carbon fiber plates. Get new steels or at least clean/resurface yours.

                                Makes good sense... If you've nearly DOUBLED the output... you can't go trying to scrimp and save anything on the clutch pack... that power means NOTHING, if you can't get it to the asphalt! More awesome pics and videos, please?!?!?!

                                  Please remember that the 1700 starters may have internal issues. I dont know if 1600 starters are different. The hot lead that goes from starter bolt thru housing attaches to a brass brush holder. the 90 degree bends in the brass is where they are cracked, and , as such, cannot handle enuf current flow. When disassembling, carefully examine that area, stress it a little to see if it falls apart in your hands. mine did, i ordered a brand new one, OEM, and it did the same. I went with aftermarket. and keep a spare in my saddlebag. Also, opinions are like motorcycle enthusiASSholes, but DEKA batteries , IMO, are superior. I have one in FL , i purchased in 2014!!! i write the date on them with a sharpie. you can order them online for good pricing, no core either. but recycle old one please.

                                    Ever raced it at an actual track to see quarter mile time and ET? I would imagine somewhere in the lower 12's at about 118 mph or so.

                                      I haven't done actual Off the line racing. All I know that 0-60mph goes around 3,5s and 1/8mile in about 8,2s ot 8,7s or something, don't have the data anymore.
                                      And the top speed in dyno was 208km/h. The dyno guy Who is a pro racer and builder, thought it could do under 13s easily in 1/4mile. We'll see when this summer there is a drag race event.
