Video: Too Fast for the Tach


Category: Video

You know you have too much power, when you break your tach needle. Tire spin can rattle a lot of things loose, but we've never seen it shake a tach needle off.

This single-turbo charged 2004 GSXR 1000 makes serious power. YouTube user Slaki McMahon, has made multiple acceleration-pass videos including this short one. On Facebook, builders M&S Performance say its making a hard-to-believe 327 bhp with 13 pounds of boost. In the video, it appears the rider is smoking the tires well up to 200 kph, which roughly equates to 124mph. The hp numbers are more believable when you visit the the team's Facebook page for build photos, this was not just a slapped-on turbo kit.
