Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

CB500 Turbo?

Post by brandyhands on Sat 21 Feb 2015, 6:26 pm

I was looking around and seen some turbo kits, was wondering whether the cb500s could handle them. Seen some youtube people with theirs but it's all international looking for a uk dealer! Anyone know any?

As you've seen there are plenty of videos of people putting turbochargers on to CB500s, so it must be possible. I don't know where you could get suitable turbos in this country.

The CB500 might well be a good candidate: it is pretty reliable which leads me to think that it might be slightly over-engineered, hence might be capable of dealing with a turbo, plus if you break the engine a new one shouldn't be too expensive Smile

Anyway, if you decide to have a go at doing it then we'd all be interested in how it goes.
