I've had this from new, and this is what it has evolved into over 30 odd years.

G'day Roger.
Nice one mate.
How much boost do you dial in and what carb does it breath through?
I'm trying to keep my 1988 FXST as stock as possible.
Cheers

It runs at 18 psi and blows through a modified Mikuni  HS 42.
I fitted the turbo in 1995 - dropped the compression down to 7:1 and fitted a pair of Wiseco forged pistons.
It still runs as good today as the day it was fitted and makes around 110 bhp - still makes me smile 😃
