That looks clean from a distance, tho' the history of Luftmeister's Matt Capri and his turbo installations is a deeper story. I pity the poor bugger who posted his name and phone number right on the ad. He's gunna be getting spammers calling him at three AM to ask "is it still available", looking for an opening.

And since he posted his phone number the bots will pick it up and he'll be getting scam calls from India until the end of time.

Maybe he needs ED medication.  You never know.

What's the difference in performance between a stock RS and a turboed version?

Is it a better ride - or just more exciting and a better conversation piece?

It has a turbocharger that kicks in at about 4,000 RPM and will easily smoke a stock bike.


Matt Capri got a turbo'd RS up to 199 MPH.

My only experience was a friend who put a turbo on a CB750 Honda around 1978.  The higher the mph, the harder it felt like it wanted to accelerate in top gear.  I don't know if it was the rider or the design of the system, but the engine barely lasted a year after he put the turbo on it.

The K engines won't get killed by a turbo. My 86 K75C was given a Luftmeister turbo when new and now has 130K miles on it.

Yeah. We had our own turboscammer in the UK about the same time - a guy called Jock Kerr. A very similar story; he even promised/advertised turbos for bikes as small as the Honda 400/4.

(Yes, I had one (non-turbo). Yes, it was tuned. Yes, it was a bloody sight faster than standard!! 86 Turbo K100RS for sale 44271 )

Matt sold a lot of Luftmeister R and K stuff that was good product. I don't personally know the details but from what I've read his business practices were let's just say "less than ideal."

From the Luftmeister catalogue circa late '80s:

"Eliminate pesky fuel injection problems by carburetting your K Bike."

Three pages later...

Fuel inject your Airhead, eliminating pesky carburettor problems."

I personally had issues with him (face-to-face at the 1989 BMWMOA rally in York, PA) on a crappy POS two-into-one exhaust I bought from him for my Airhead. Regret long gone, but bitter taste lingers.

Nice catch! Smile

My K75 turbo works GREAT (for a mid-80s turbo) and I think the K100 turbos are also good.

The one thing my K75 has that I didn't realize until I looked at the paper that came with it and rode it is that it also has the Lufty high performance cams.  Since I have an aversion to police issued performance awards I actually find the added low end torque on the K75 to be more generally useful than the turbo.

The Lufty exhaust on my K100 seems to work well.
