Just finished building my third generation turbo kit for the T7 Tenere in my shop in Clarkston, Washington. My partner owns the Yamaha dealership in Lewiston, Idaho across the Snake River and he wanted Gen. 3 as his personal bike. He has not been able to get an R7 yet so if anyone nearby wants an R7 Turbo installed, I'll make it for them at a very reasonable price. I just need the two flanges from the stock headers so I can weld them to the turbine inlet flange I have on order. They can be sawed off with an angle grinder or hack saw about 2" back from the end where they connect to the engine. I need both the flanges and pipe section. First person to send them gets first option for the

kit.

Thanks

Thanks, Twiztidr7, PM sent.

This project began long ago and I took the first prototypes over to Two Wheel Dynoworks in Seattle. Nels was helpful and each bike now have over 6500 miles on them. After the dyno runs, many changes were made. Don't ask me for numbers, but I can tell you this: If you are on pavement in third gear above 3500 rpm and quickly open the throttle on a Tenere, the rear wheel will slip the tire from the rim because it has no rim locks!

The Gen. 3 engine kit was put on my partner's new bike and then broken in with the turbo installed. We may build some for new bikes and warrant them. That's how strong the CP2 engine is.

A big "thank you" goes to Twiztidr7 (Nate) for sending a pair of flanges. They will be shortened and back-welded to the manifold which slides into the stock pipe diameter. A strong short manifold allows the whole unit to be placed close to the engine and everything should fit inside the fairing of an R7.
