to include - years of hands-on experience in servicing these bikes by
owners, riders and mechanics.

If you are the owner of this bike, arguably the first factory turbo bikes, and have some experience to share then we would love to hear from you.

Tech Suspension for Factory Turbos
At Turbo Rally XX (2010) Race Tech's Matt Wiley showed up on a Race Tech-equipped 1983 Yamaha Turbo that was immaculate (see the Rally write-up). The suspension work may have been more valuable than the entire bike, but Matt says it's worth every penny. He's owned his Yamaha Turbo for only two years, but put 25,000 miles on it so you can bet he knows what he's talking about. Matt kindly offered the TMIOA a 20% discount on fork parts and a 10% discount on shock parts and labor. Matt has suspension upgrades for all the Turbos, so check Race Tech's Vintage Street pages. Contact Matt at: mwiley@RaceTech.com .
