Muzzys 500hp ZX10R Turbo Kit

Muzzys ZX10 Turbo KitMuzzys has been a big name in the Kawasaki racing business for a lot of years and there's a good reason for that, they make some pretty cool stuff. They've already made a few things for the new ZX14 but as I was looking over their web site at new products something just stuck out, a turbo kit for the ZX10R. It comes in a Stage 1 and Stage 3 version (hmm ... where's Stage 2?). Stage 1 brings the ZX10 up to an impressive 233hp with 109 ft/lb of torque, enough for most of us but of course, why have stages with numbers unless you're going to go higher? Jumping to Stage 3 yields a bit more, 500hp and 249 ft/lb of torque! That's 500hp! Installation looks nice and tidy.

Yes it's expensive, but 500hp, ... nice.

    i remember one of the brit mags did a comparo between a tuned (stock displacement) hayabusa, a 1400 big bore, a 1600cc bore and stroke, and a 350hp turbo. the 1600 was not a favorite, despite having a flat torque curve. too easy to spin the tyre, too hard to go fast. the turbo was also slow everywhere but really long straights, but the author loved it because the off boost behaviour made it easy to ride below a certain rpm.

    but surely that 500hp can’t be streetable, unless they add some cc’s or nitrous? (or both!)

    This is nowhere in the range of “accessible performance” but if you can build it and make money selling it to people who think it will make their bike better; go for it.

    At the insane end of streetbike horsepower race, at some point it must get increasingly difficult for these companies to get repeat customers.

    This is a “dream come true” product. I believe that the power, under the right conditions, could be made useable. With the proper gearing, aerodynamics (Downward Force), geometry modifications (Extended Swing arm), tires, and on the right road/track with a skilled pilot aboard. A machine with 500 HP and 249 FP T could and would be the ticket to absolute thrill and bliss not to mention record setting runs which could only be achieved with such an excellent piece of technology such as this. (ZX10R and Stage III Turbo) Someone is doing something right. I will admit that 250 HP is much more ride able but it’s just not the max deal as is the above mentioned setup. Enough is enough you say? No, it is not!!!

    I’m personally in the market for more power for the ZX10R and I sized up the Stage III. The reason why i’m unfortunately relegated to the Stage I is because I ride the bike in town and hit the twisties on occasion (often as possible). Which is an issue with the Stage III as you have to stretch your bike out and constantly feed it throttle in town to keep it going. Although it sure would be sweet to battle that brutal Stage III torque curve even just once!

    I hear that the clamed power of Muzzys turbo system is a bit on the happy side to the tune of aboyt 120 h.p. . Has anyone done a independent turbo dyno? I would be interested in finding out.

    GOT A VELOSITY TURBO ON A 07 ZX10R AND ITS STUPID FAST OVER 5000 RPM’S IT JUST GETS IT, EASY TO INSTALL AND TUNE, OF COURSE, THATS WHAT I DO! DYNOED AT A LOCAL SHOP AT 123 HP 1ST PULL. GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME WITHOUT HURTING IT.
