How to solve problem with fuel cock...now I'll be needing return line for the fuel???
My turbo manifold design is above oil level (center of turbo is 10 mm higher then crankshaft) and I drain oil to pan drainage bolt As you see , this solution is working for now...but after I stop the engine there is few drops of oil in both sides - compressor and turbine. Should I worry about this???
Yesterday when I first started engine only with turbo...the motor lost idle and now it's idles only with half a choke. Yes, now the motor is with changed parameters on exhaust side...but how to adjust carbs now??
Firstly hi and great first turbo build, you can fit restrictors in oil supply line from supply and at turbo end we used banjo bolts with mikuni main jet fitted 1mm or size (100) both ends restricted this is screwed into a m6 thread, an old emulsion tube from mikuni carb, and pressed into the banjo bolt end, Also worth trying is a small turbo drain pot say enough to hold 60ml of oil , this can then be scavenged back to engine. either with electric 12v gear pump, or empts type pump which is driven from crank, Rh side through side case lots out there available now this is preferable as empts pumps don't fail like 12v electric ones do!
as for carbs I would say try, smaller jets you will be supprised how low you go to get it to run clean, I went from 150mains to 95 mains but all are different be careful, take your time worth noting also your needles and emulsion tubes, need to perfect and super clean if there slightly worn this will cause huge grief setting up. Good luck.

and lower the fuel level around 2mm, stock is 14,5 if I remember correctly so it should be at least 16mm. The float needles should also be 100% ok. When you pressurize the fuel a very small leak already has a big influence.
Nice Slingy by the way. My first GSX-R was a 750J in the same colours.

Firstly is the turbo from a VAG 1.8 diesel? If so you may be disappointed - I was! I used a new one on an 1100 and it strangled the output - you may be lucky with only a 750! Problem is diesels designed to boost early with a limited rpm range so they run out of oomph on a petrol burner. Re Oil return i'd be tempted to run the return from the turbo to the clutch cover just above static oil level. Going back to the sump has a weight of oil over it and only when the oil height in the return is higher than the sump oil level will it transfer + any crankcase pressure (common on turbos) reduces this flow even more. If done as I suggest there is no head to over come so better, more reliable drainage is possible.

Actually it's CNC router..a friend of mine makes for hobby RC planes,choppers,quadro-copters (this things with cameras), drones and etc. It's not very good for durAl (it's very slow...make this part almost half an hour)
So the problem..previous owner bought the bike 2005 and never ride it. He sad there is problem with original carbs (36mm MIC) and he bought almost new carbs from Katana....MIC 34. When I get it, da bike runs poorly (only 3 cyl. fired)...I clean carbs, renew all O-rings and bikes begin to start and idle great. 10 days later the only change I made was putting turbo (w/o connecting turbo to the carbs) and now the bike works only with choke and refuse to idle. tonight I checked the valve clearance and it was tight EX was around 0.15 and IN was 0.10. I make them to the specs, but not any change...agrrr.
You sure nothing else has changed in the last 10 days? Removed air box to measure up for plenum? Had carb tops off and not seated diaphragm properly? Kinked fuel line? Vacuum line not connected to carbs causing vacuum leak and fuel starvation.? Low on fuel? Your focusing on the turbo but I bet it's just a coincidence and it will be something else you've touched without even thinking it would have any problems. All of the above have caught me out before. With a blow through the carbs REALLY need to be 100% and it needs to ride well normally aspirated. Any issues Will be amplified when under boost.
