I sort of remember these back in the day. The exhaust going into and exiting the turbo appears like it would all be on the left side of the bike. Not quite sure but I think the turbo mounts about where the factory airbox would be. Might be a hose or piece of tubing not shown in picture that connects the turbo to the carb bonnet and inlet air cleaner would be on right side then?

I wonder how well our CV carbs would work with pressure/boost?
Probably need to go up a few sizes in the jets otherwise it'd be too lean I'd think.

Turbo

I actually have one of these setups on my 78. I tried going through the website to buy these parts, but couldn't seem to contact the seller. Does anyone know about this smartcarguide site? Thanks Tom

tut tut...they aren't junk.... Just old school , like the rest of the bike. The OEM carbs were state of the art once...like the bike, with all those amazing new design features like vacuum advance, electrical output socket, tubeless
tyres etc....

Hi, I tried to find this post about 6 months ago and couldn't locate the guy. This would have been a killer deal.

Mr. Turbo is a great resource. He may be able to sell a universal kit. But now you are up to over $2,000.

Turbo kits seem to come up on ebay from time to time. Maybe same kit? The original turbo version of the XS 11 did not boost pressure; it was set up to maintain sea level pressure up through high elevations thus keeping performance consistent.

This google search returned photos of turbocharged XS11s:

Here is a You Tube video showing an 11 Special with an ATP turbo kit:

This set up provides boost I think.
