2000 ZX600E turbo or not. ???

Just would like to hear from anyone that has a 600E. If you like it and what's your opinion of this bike. I bought one for cheap wrecked. Wasn't a lot wrong with it from the accident. But it also wasn't driven for about 6 years. I've been through everything and I'm about to get it running. I might turbo it. Just curious of what you think of this bike. I'm sure as cheap as you can get a bigger bikefor. It would probably make more sense just to get a bigger bike. But I've done a lot to make it really light and I just love turbo power. So what do you think. I have done some mods to get it ready. Like good brakes, water cooled oiling, larger rear tire and wheel, increased cooling system. New carbs, also it's a very low mileage engine and I added a MLS head gasket and head studs. I'm thinking a blow through system. Main reason I bought carbs and I believe they will be more turbo friendly. Also higher gear ratio. So good or bad. I'd like to hear it and I really appreciate comments. I have total rebuilt this bike. It's like new and has nothing but the best parts I could find. So it's like new and almost done.

anything done right is worth the project....mild boost and it will work like a 1000cc machine.

My supercharged zx6r 05 was a blast to run with 10psi.

Build it and enjoy.

Thanks for the reply. I'm thinking I'll leave compression high. Only drop it a little like 10.5 to 11.1 and use a small turbo. I have a Garrett gt12 new or I might get a Gt15. Make it spool fast and keep the boost down. I've been looking in to meth injection. I used meth on another project and it worked out great. Probably need a ignition system so I retard it a few degrees. It'll be trial and error because I've never done motorcycle before. But I'm thinking it'll be no different from turbocharging anything else. Tuning will be critical on high compression engine.

You can slot the pickup and retard the timing that way.

Can you tell me how to do it. I'd really appreciate it.

I install a EBC clutch and noticed that the fiber disc furthest one in was cracked into a bunch of pieces. Do you think this could of happen in the accident or do you think the clutch was installed wrong. It was strange. Never seen anything like it before.

sometimes that can be from excessive use, real excessive.

the round holes for the pickup can be slotted to longer holes, thus letting you shift the "timing"....advance or retard.

So you're talking about the center hole on the rotor. It has a small slot so it can only bolt on one way. Just in large it so I'm pulling timing out. I do have a small engine degree wheel. I think I've got it. So are you pulling 2 to 4 degrees out with about 10 pounds of boost. I'm thinking with high compression I'll go 4 and see if it has any knock.
