Hi everyone, hope the holiday is not grinding you down yet LOL.
I just found this on fleabay
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ELECTRIC-TURBO-SUPERCHARGER-KIT-UNIVERSAL-FIT-For-Motorcycle-/252582866174?hash=item3acf1cacfe:g:jzQAAOSwLnBX2SEB
who fancies trying it out first and posting the verdict?
i cannot imagine what sap would fall for the "blow your friends away" quote in the advertising blurb.
cheers Andy.

no, no. no. it don't work. there is no way to provide the extra fuel needed when the thing turns on.

the air filter is the only thing worth having in the kit

look at the plumbing
if you look at the two photos where its fitted, it looks like you mount it to the inlet of the cylinder then the carb inlet goes on the other end, in theory it could work, BUT the sparks from the electric motor will ignite the mixture well before it reaches the cylinder Wha? emoticon
there have been plenty sold to Clown emoticon so i wonder why no one has admitted to it and posted? Nerd emoticon

You could mount another fuel injector activated by the same switch as the blower.

The more impotrant question is what are insurance tablets?

Put a turbo on it. Just a lot of money and time.

You can't get free energy like this. The electric motor can't push enough air to make a significant difference, and even that amount is offset by the increased load on the power system.

What you can do though is add a gas or battery leaf blower.

I supercharged a GSX1400 a long time ago. It pushed up power from 106.5ps at 6750rpm with 126nm of torque at 5000rpm, to 195ps at 6900rpm with 200nm of torque at 4750rpm. I kept the max torque revs fairly high to protect the motor from compressive forces at low revs. Without the supercharger acceleration was 0-62mph in 2.57secs. After supercharging, that improved to 1.7secs. The main advantage was the incredible in gear acceleration at the mid and upper end of the performance envelope. 0-100mph and stop was 8.7secs. Main issue was I had to replace the rear tyre (tire) every 1300 miles at £135 a time. You could spin the rear wheel on dry road in 1,2,3,4th gears. The bike was incredibly reliable and covered in excess of 175,000 miles (not all with a supercharger fitted). Riding that bike may explain why I have shoulder issues now, and why my arms are 2.5 inches longer than they should be!! Regarding the supercharger shown, it could work if it's been made properly. You don't actually need much of a blow to improve performance. Many modern small petrol cars that use a turbo or supercharger only blow at 2.5 to 4 atmospheres (called a low blow solution). Yet that can push up power and torque immensely with a few other mods such as a remap of ignition and fuelling too. Turbos are the preferred method these days as they consume far less power than superchargers and with variable vane technology and variable nozzles there is virtually no turbo lag either. All good. Many motorcycle manufacturers will be using this technology in the near future in many of their engines to meet Euro 5 and above which comes in in 2020.
