Agreed! This engine is a proven platform for a turbo. It is something I would like to do to my bike later on.

Keen to hear if anyone is already on to this as well.

Boris from Bikeme.tv has just been given the GSXS1200 to review. 205HP so it should be a very interesting when he writes it up.

Behold the latest Phil Tainton creation - the PTR Suzuki GSX-S1200.

Yeah, it is a bit pricey. Still, it's only marginally more expensive than carbon fibre wheels from BST!

I'll be very interested to see the review of the GSXS1200! Thanks for sharing, Jimmy!

Looks great!

Not cheap though, so I guess this is top-notch parts/work.


It looks like the price is parts only so it could get very expensive
They do a cheap ECU flash I see for only $275, not sure if they have an updated fuel map though

Agreed. If you dropped off your bike to them it would be exceedingly expensive. If you were going to build your own engine then just get it tuned you'd minimise the labour charges. IF you took your cams and head to specialists you'd save a little more as well.

But... Over 200hp in something as light as the GSXS? Imagine the money you'd save from lack of front tyre wear!
