Brief run alright...too brief! Sound great!
Wonder what a supercharger would do for my Hayabusa?
Yep. Brief, but there'a a reason.
The clip shows 20- 90mph (+/-) in that time shown.
All-out drag launches with elevated rpms and an abrupt clutch "dump" are pretty exciting. It's not too wheelie prone due to my weight, so that part is easy to control, but the rear tire has a strong tendency to break loose and that will grab your attention.
But, since I have to fix everything that breaks around here, I avoid too much of that activity as it is pretty hard on the equipment. I'm not interested in breaking it to determine the absolute quarter mile time potential. Ditto for dyno runs. Maybe if I only weighed 105 pounds like magazine testers
I had planned a slightly longer run for this video, but I eased off the throttle in third. Why? 2 seconds after the clip ends I get to exercise my new brakes big time as a car on the shoulder of the causeway (not there on the outbound scouting pass) decided to move (you can't see him through the screen due to low camera angle).
Sharp eyes (on the tach and boost gauge) will notice that my shifts were very careful and rather pokey. Unlike Octane's video, I am always very careful not to blow past redline. That takes LOTS of concentration as it will rev quickly to the peg. I have a rev limiter planned.
Also, due to the low camera angle, super wide angle lens and parallax error, The gauge readings are a bit distorted. For example, viewed normally - max boost reads 8 psi at redline (the yellow limit line is set at 9 psi). In the video it looks like the max boost is a bit lower than that value. Again, that a distortion introduced by the camera.
Anyway, the main point of this video was to let folks experience the sound of the blower. I never get tired of it.
