The bike: 2000 TT600
The problem: I need to find a place to get engine rebuild parts. Where can i get the parts or a kit for a good price. Is it worth to bore it over? Well I get anymore power out of the bike if I do and how much is safe?


Thanks for any help

ebay... saw several dealers selling complete engines for a pretty low price.

as for boring it over... you might get more performance. But i doubt it is easy to get a set of pistons that will fit. I'd myself would rather go with a supercharger/turbocharger addition. With which you can leave the engine relatively unchanged.

but how much does a turbo run for a bike and how hard is it install? i still wanna be able to ride the moutnains but being as fast as 750 would be fun

Change the gearing to 15/49. The top speed won't change, or might even get a little better, but you will notice the added quickness out of corners. Keep it boiling, and you won't have any problems keeping up with 750s in street conditions. If you can't keep up, the guys on the 750s are probably guys you don't want to be riding with anyway, since using the full capacity of any bike, even an SV650 or something like it, on the street is completely insane.

I have never seen a turbo or supercharged TT6 or S4.

The bike is a 599...you want to "hang" with 750's then I respectfully suggest the following, in this order:
  • Only ride with people on larger bikes who are less skilled than you
  • Change the gearing
  • Get a Daytona or S3 (955 or larger)

turbocharging is the easiest. i think there is a company called mister turbo which specialises in these things. They sell universal kits. Only thing you have to change is the mounting on the exhaust ports. Costs? 1500 dollar, but boring out a engine will set you back more (i think)

to be honest, i never seen any 600cc super or turbocharged, but it can be done. I know that the tolerances of the suzuki engines are alot higher (as they use the same blok for their 600 750 and 1000cc engines). but for a triumph, i have no clue.

as for riding with your 750 buddies. I think that a racing course might be alot cheaper and last you alot longer then any modification you can do on any bike.

How many EFI, high-compression Triumphs have you turboed? ;)
dozens and dozens, all in my mind ;)

I was just referring to the easiest between supercharging and turbocharging. Supercharging needs to be hooked up to a belt. The turbocharger just works of the exhaust and is just much easier reachable.

i understand race courses in the corners but as i said i want stright line speed too
even a race course can improve that. But as i said, turbocharger is the easiest and most effective way. You can bore up the cilinder, but your never going to get much more then with a charger.

I guess you folks haven't kept up with TLCS3 and his Bonneville Land Speed Record holding turbocharged TT600 :D:




First off, turbocharging anything that didn't come from the factory with a turbocharger is not the 'easiest' thing to do. If you have enough money, you can think it is easy by paying someone else to do the work, but that will not be cheap. After turbocharging the engine, you'd need to have the fuel map customized on a dyno to get anything out of the machine that would make the turbo worth while. Then you need to take into consideration longevity. Compressing air into cylinders tends to put much more stress on the block and internals than the designed compression ratio, so you might go fast but for not as long. TLCS3 is a racer, which means I don't think he cares too much about street performance or longevity so long as the bike runs at the meet and breaks records.

Freshusmc, from your responses to people’s posts, I think you are looking for a quick and easy way to get a lot more power out of the engine than is possible quickly and easily. Engine displacement means little if the rest of the engine internals were designed for 600cc’s. 750cc bikes don't just have 150cc more than a 600, but their cams are going to be more aggressive, their heads are most likely going to have larger intake and exhaust runners, and their valves are usually going to be larger to handle the increased fuel and waste. I've not examined the differences between all 600cc and 750cc motorcycle engines, but these are reasonable changes between the two. Personally, if you want more power out of your engine you'd be better off having the head milled to bump the comp ratio, and have it port and polished to improve flow. Along with Will's suggestion of gearing, you’d have much better results without spending a ton of money. Frankly, when it comes down to semi-stock dragracing, if you want to beat a newer 750cc asian motorcycle without spending thousands of dollars on the TT600, you should be looking into getting a larger displacement Triumph.

well that easiest is maybe a bit to presumptuous(sp?) but i was referring to a easy way of getting horsepowers. And while you can polish your things and bore up your engine, a turbocharger (or supercharger) just gets you alot more power with just that upgrade.

As for the easiest way, get a new airfilter (k&n anyone?) get a new muffler and remap everything.

makes me proud to know that i'm riding a bike which could hold a world record :)
