How does it run? I bet that turbo gives it some top end pull. Did you make your own pipes for the turbo? That sounds like a great project.

That is very cool. I never heard of it done before.

It runs okay, still in the tuning process.
I could upload a video, one of these days.
Yes i make everything, pipes, intake manifold, tank etc.
Installed some more thingslike bov and fender.
It spools up okay, but are looking for more suitable turbos from one of the small cars.
I chose this one because of the watercooling of turbo.
In the plan is to mount ic from a opel combo c
Had to get timing for the fuel injection ecu from the stator side. And running stock ignition for time being

A very interesting project and looks good too.

For controlling things I'd give an email to the Ignitech folks, I use one of their TCIP4 ICM boxes (ignition only) on my relatively stock bike and have been happy with it for a few years.
The full featured Ignijet is AFAIK programmable to do what you need, it is kind of expensive though, but reasonably priced if you look at some of the other offerings out there!

Anyway thanks for posting this, it is great to see the envelope that is the VT750 pushed beyond my expectations.

You are welcome.

If some photos won't open - right click and click on open link in new tab.

I learned that on here a while back.
And sometimes I will take "snip" and then can adjust it in a photo program.

My Ignitech ignition triggers off the regular trigger wheel, but the setup is pretty flexible so I didn't have to go that route.
Still feeding mine with the carbs I have not looked into their injection setup other than to go wow.

If you email them a copy of your setup and the required component wiring and your situation, they will get back to you usually quite quickly with your options and pricing.
Email usually works best, they have a couple of people who speak English, but unless you speak Czech, phoning is kind of hit or miss.
Turn around on finished product is usually pretty quick.

IIRC you can download the software from their site and take a look at it on a Windows computer to see if it allows the flexibility you are after.

Thanks for the update.
Looking good and sounding interesting.
I see it has sprouted an intercooler since the last time I saw a picture.
The bike must get a lot of interested looks when it is out and about.

The rings failed total, blowing straight past. So i guess it was time anyways. 20 years old already.
Yes the intercooler is from a vauxhall combo c.
Customized the exit side
