    Hi Mark, I don’t know of anyone who has done this. Obviously you will need a one off inlet manifold. In other conversions on other bikes that i have seen, is seems to me that using a SU carb is prefferable. Perhaps some of the Turbo conversion specialists might be able to help as the SU is often used.

    Have been chatting to lots on FB about this.There are at least 2 U.S. companies that do it.
    They re jet origional carb or use a Mikuni.
