Started building this bike I got in a box for free. Then I found this forum.

    I had this nice 78 xs400 handed to me in boxes. Decided to asse mble it and put my usual twist on things with parts I've had lying around the shop for some time now. Went looking for info on the machine and found this site. Since this site helped me I'll help it. Hope you all enjoy.

    Sure, just putting a turbo on it, no big deal.

    Welcome to the forum. Looks like you're off to a great start. Looking forward to seeing the progress.
    What's the carb you have on there?

    Unrelated to this site, I also have a 1991 gsxr 1100 that I have converted to standalone EMS. Looking to sell when the weather breaks. I need it out of my spare room.

    Havent given up on it. Broke it back out, changed some things to benefit it. It takes longer than you think when you have more than one bike.

    Changed to a symmetrical intake manifold with a 39mm fcr pumper carb. Beautiful N/A runabililty when adjusted. Boost refrenced with no fuel pump @ 2lbs boost, it pushes the fuel back out the emulsion tube. Tried all kinds of stuff, goldwing fuel pump/ lots of fuel in tank. It still says no. Tried an in tank pump from silverado modified to be external with rising rate pressure regulator. Worked great for 3 seconds. The pump leaked from every crack in it. True external efi style pump headed my way. Results coming up sooner or later here.
