Hi Guys, just thought i would share this with you folk out there. We had the Africa bike week here in Margate South coast from 24 to 27 april with over 5000 bikes. This is one of the bikes that really caught my eye, could not get to speak to the owner but just heard him say that he has twin turbos on there. This bike is known as the joker as you can see. One other thing i did see is that it lays rubber down on take off. What do you guys think of it.

Looks like a set of Webers on a very long inlet tracts. No turbos there with stock exhaust. But a way cool looking bike anyway. Guess he got tired of the FI for some reason.

Sorry, I got to call shananigans on this one. You would really have to pull the entire wiring harness off and rewire to make that work. Speedo also goes through the ecu--there are ways around that, but still. There is no proof that he is just using that elaborate set up as just for intakes air only and still runs it all. There are no turbos on that bike Bigeh will chime in on that. Also, what would be the reason, other than being different, to lose HP and reliability with that set up. I say used for intakes only.

Prooved! The second set of pics shows the TPS still in place above the pipes---little grey thing---says throttle bodies are still there. Good looking bike over all, but have to do better than that to get past me.

They are just fancy air intakes. Still has modified stock pipes, no intercooler, and no wastegate. And like FuturR said, still has a tps sensor meaning the throttle bodies are still there.

Great looking bike, maybe it was a pick up line to pick up a chick, he did have two helmets on the bike!

They deleted the rear brake set-up. No pedal or rotor or caliper whatsoever.

To me, that is just showing the intelligence score.
