Craig’s Motorcycles
1985 Kawasaki 750Turbo
The wake from this thing was so strong that roadside wildflowers used to get sucked into the turbulence and settle into the vortex behind the fairing. It drove me crazy.
The turbocharger unit died on me one day, much to my horror as the replacement part was worth as much as I'd paid for the whole bike. I pondered methods of repair as if my life depended on it, and came up with a way to silver-solder the float bearings and thus restore their operating clearances. It was a very low-tech solution to a high-tech problem that saved me a fortune.
A few brief owner reviews can be found here.
