    I am thinking construct or buy turbo charger for my Buell XB12s.

    On one Finland website http://www.proboost.fi/EN/wp_buell%20xb.html
    i find turbo kit for XB, that you think about this thing?

    I mail them yesterdayhttp://www.proboost.fi/EN/wp_buell%20xb.htmlI send them some questions about this kit. Here what whey answer:
    Thanks for intressting our turbo kit for Buell.

    Price is 2300€
    Post and packing costs 150€
    Turbo is Mitsubishi TD 04 HL-14 T and its orginal motor 0,5 bar
    You can get 130 rwhp / 0,5 bar
    Delivery time is 4 weeks.

    How do you think 0,5 bar is enought?
    I have stock engine with stock pistons, and i dont want to kill it)

    I live in Thailand and is very difficult here with parts for Buell.
    Thanks for your answers guys.

    Same turbo that's on my Forester. You can pick up these turbos for ~150 - 200$ used

    True the turbo itself is cheap but to get it running is not cheap. I'm no expert but that doesn't seem like a crazy price IMO.

    Yeah 3 grand Is something that I would pay. People in Finland get an awesome price. If it was 2,300 I'd definitely be trying it out within the next couple weeks.

    Sad how its an American bike yet no companies in the US are willing to make parts like this for us.
