Default 2007 ZX-6R Turbo Kit

I was sitting here thinking that if the insurance company doesn't total my bike, it would be cool to put a turbo kit on it instead of replacing all of the plastic work etc.

Does anyone make turbo kits for these yet?

Well I'm bored as hell at work so i decided to do some searching around.. So far I cant find anything for the 07-08 ZX-6rs only for the older bikes.

But if you have the cash to throw around I'm sure you can fabricate something. Your looking at some bucks tho.. The Garrett T-20 Turbo seem to be a popular choice for 600cc bikes.

You will have to get a company to make a one of for an 07-08 zx6r. They don't have a market out for our years because of the power they already put out stock. But if you think about it you will need:

Built motor: $3,000+
Turbo kit: $4,000-$5,000
Intercooler: $300+
Custom exhaust: $1000+
Tuning device: 300+
Wideband kit: $250+
Tuning: $300+
Misc items: $200+

So if you look at it to get a one of kit you are probably looking at about $10,000. Not worth it imho, because you can build it, get it running but might have problems and have to dump more money into it. Just spend alittle more and pick up a new liter bike if you want more power.

Unless you just have a lot of extra money, I agree with everyone else get a liter bike. Turbo bikes aren't something you can hop on and ride everyday. They take constant tinkering and maintenance.

Unless you plan to fabricate it yourself it's going to cost you some cash. I 'built' on for my friends 07 GSXR600 last summer and between him and I we put in approximately 100 hours to make it happen. Making the manifold took a good chunk of that time because we kept changing it to hide the turbo but you get the idea.

It turned out really well and made somewhere in the neighborhood of 155whp up from the baseline 111whp. The bike has over 10 000 boosted km's now and hasn't skipped a beat. The extra tourque is the best part...it pulls strong! We used a T-20 and made our own exhaust from mandre bent Stainless and it sounds mean. It grumbles like a harley when you let off it and sounds like a Ducati twin with straight pipes when it's wide open
.
I was thinking I might make one for my 6r just to be different but I'lll probably just get a litre bike and race the 600. If you have time and cash I say do it though.

Keep the boost low and you wont need to build anything. From start to finish your probably looking at more like 3k from start to finish. Most expensive part will be you finding or making a turbo manifold.
