So i have started my turbo project. Not much welding to do for header, couple of hours... Today i tested intercooler how it fits. I think it will look awesome when painted black
What do you think?

Not a big fan of the seat. Like the rest, and wow, what are those front and rear calipers?????. Lets watch and see what the end product of this project ends up. We have a few warriors that have done this before. it goes like the 'cleppers' as we say here (translation: it kicks arse). Good luck and keep us updated

I started to shave that seat. Thats why it dont have any leather on it Plan is to get it covered with different style leather. Maybe diamond stitch.
Look my bike info site for brakes. I listed all mods there.

I am digging it. The bike already looks like it could get a speeding ticket while sitting at a red light. That is a compliment my brother.

My God man, what an incredible looking RSW! The install is clean and compliments the bike! Keep us posted on your build as I can't wait to see the end result, although getting there IS the journey my friend. All I got is WOW!!

Great looking bike. How's that wide tire handle the snow?

Looks pretty slick.
But i think the gap between the cooler and the fender on the front might be a little too narrow....
If the front dives in maybe the fender will hit the cooler...?

looking good. HarryMarsch has a good point . You need to test it with the handlebars turned all the way to one side and then the other making sure that your forks bottom out to make sure that there is enough clearance, You may have to remove your chin spoiler and put the intercooler lower. I made a noce chin spoiler for a VROD once that looked great and worked fine until he hit the brakes and turned the handlebars the front fender then hit the spoiler and from the looks of your pictures I think you could have an interference problem.

Thank you guys for all the comments Today i finished my header, first time tig welding header, only had done some minor weldings before. So im pretty happy with my weldings.
Next thing is paint it with vht black and wrap it with black.

I plan to turn my wastegate lever 90 degrees so i can put my wastegate actuator pointin up behind turbo.

I bought that intercooler becouse it had 50mm core. It dont hit the tire when i turn handlebars. Only thing worries me is the suspension travel. Maybe i need to stiffen up those r1 forks. Or fork extend?

Here are some pics.
