For fun, this is just what a heavily modded wing can do. Would be nice if it could be a neater more OEM kind of thing, but hey it's a modded bike.

Enjoy!

Especially that seat. That seat....

Seems like I remember this build from GWFacts or NGW a while back.

i would love to put a turbo unit onto my 86 CFI SEi, not that its not fast now, but might be nice with a little more "oomph" if you get my drift.

nitrous might be nice, but i would be afraid it might burn the piston rings out or destroy the engine.

yes, it is Bad Azzzz. i wonder what it's top speed is in a quarter mile run and if he had to do any brake modifications to get it to stop safely at what ever its top speed is.

i know my 86 CFI SEi has a lot of power and torque off the line as it is a truly powerful bike for its size and weight. there is a drag strip being built not too far from where i live. i would love the opportunity to test its power just out of curiosity to see what it will do. i have driven cages at high speeds, (133-145 mph), but wonder what it would be like to do that on a motorcycle.

well, i've already had my 83 1100 up to 105 mph and my 86 1200 CFI SEi up to 115 mph, but thats as far as i pushed them due to they both started vibrating from old tires and not being properly balanced. the new set of tires that are on my 1200 are perfectly balanced and im sure it wouldn't be a problem taking the bike up to at least 120 mph in a controlled environment of course with a safety crew at the ready "just in case".

stuart.......You better call Richard Petty and see if he has any old 1970 Superbird rear spoilers that you could modify and mount to the back to give you more down pressure on your rear tire.

105 and 115mph........Shake, Rattle, and Roll!

well, going fast is/was/ and maybe still is in my blood. when i was a lot younger, i had fast cars and probably broke most of every speed law in my state. come to find out that when i met my biological father,( i was adopted) some 20 years ago, i found out that he was a small time stock car racer back in the early 50's and i was always wanting to drive on a race track, and still do, but my racing days were spent on the interstate highways pushing my vehicles as fast as they would go.

my last "stint" with the law caused me to loose my license. i was driving up from visiting my sister down in plantation Florida to New Jersey when i was caught on radar on a rinky dink section of i95 in Georgia going 130 mph in my 87 Lincoln town car. my car had a HO 5.0 police interceptor engine with a computer chip in it. the trooper made me follow him directly to the court house and when i was in front of the judge, he took my license right on the spot and gave me a 12 hour temporary license to drive the rest of the way home. that however didn't stop me from driving. i drove for another 17 years without a d/l and after paying off all my speeding tickets that went back 15 years, i finally got my new drivers license and have had it now for 3 years and 4 months without a single ticket or being pulled over for any motor vehicle infraction. sometimes i still ride/drive a little fast, but i try to keep it under control and only do it when theres no other vehicular traffic around or near me or any unsafe conditions and only when im on the interstate highways and never on "local roadways".

stuart.....Cool that you have a dad like Jimmy Johnson out of N. Carolina, who I think was running moonshine and running from the cops was how he got his driving skills.

Youre gonna drive me to drinkin,
If you dont stop driving that H O T R O D L i n c o l n.
That song by Commander Cody fit you perfectly.
That LIncoln was going 130, and you probably still had her on cruise control, and had your cigar drafting along the little cigar window. Funny......I still have a mint 88 Lincoln towncar.....a real landshark. You wont catch me going over 65, since my tires are 25 years old. Good to see you got your license back and have been laying low, well below the radar guns.

hey Dwight, yeah, i kinda had that feeling when i had my 87 town car. it sure surprised a lot of people out on the interstate seeing me coming up behind them like a "flying tiger" jet plane lol. going from 120 mph down to 60 mph was like being in a parking lot lol. once they moved over out of my way, i would just tromp on the gas and feel the car downshift 2 gears and i was off like a shot. it felt very nice to have that much power under me knowing i could cruse along at well over 125 mph for a few miles without the engine skipping a beat. the same holds true with both of my wings. i have them tuned to perfection and i couldn't ask for better throttle responses from either one of them although my SEi is MUCH faster than my 1100.

my 83 GL1100 now has over 110,XXX miles on her and my 86 CFI SEi has almost 85,XXX miles on her and im very pleased with both of them. i had thought about putting a turbo unit on both of them, but as they stand now, i have no qualms taking either of them over the 3 digit speed limit, but i "restrain" myself knowing what can happen if i were to get caught or having make only one mistake while traveling at those speeds on my bikes.

once i get my SEi back on the road, im going to look into finding out what it would take to put her on a quarter mile track and get an accurate time trial speed, that way i can figure out what it will do in a mile run as far as time and speed are concerned.

Stuart......You have your Wings tuned to perfection, and if you read my recent posts of my carb problems, you will see that I am basically bringing mine back from the dead.
But I resolved the white smoke, and she is running sweet now. Working on the frozen rear brakes now.

Yep, one small hic-up at those high speeds and things could turn pretty nasty real fast. I saw a video on youtube of some guy recording his high speed ride of about 120mph. Another biker is seen coming in his direction well over 60mph, and one of them cross the yellow line and have a head on collision. Needless to say, I dont think either one survived the impact. Finding a trac to experiment with that rocket might be worth it in the long run.......or take a trip out to the salt flats in Utah.

Stuart......If you cant click on the link below, just go to GL1100 Forum, and look for the title called "Fresh Carb Rebuild and Engine Knocking". Let me know if you agree with what was causing the white smoke.

Dwight, that entire posting made for very interesting reading, but, as for the white smoke, one day while i was out on my 1100 aspy, it suddenly started belching out white smoke especially more so when i gave it hard throttle and i was very scared it blew a head gasket. then i remembered something, this happened once before to another bike i used to own. it was an older Yamaha xs 400. what happened was this.........it had a fuel overflow canister down on the bottom of the motor that needed to be emptied every so often, so i took a look at the one on my 1100 and low and behold when i removed it and turned it upside down there was so much oil and fuel inside of it it was actually backing up back into the air plenum and causing all that white smoke coming out of the tail pipes. i reinstalled it and it took a couple of minutes to clear up, but it did clear and stopped smoking. you might have to empty yours if its so equipped. it should be located down behind the left bottom side of the motor just in front of the swing arm. its a small round black canister and is attached with an 8 or a 10 mm head bolt and a clear plastic tube going to another tube that connects to the air box. its part of the air breather system. remove it from the breather tube and turn it upside down to empty it. you can also use some gas or spray any other type of cleaner in it and give it a good shaking up to get it to pour clear then put it back onto the bike. Honda recommends emptying it more often depending on your riding and weather conditions. the more you ride and rainy weather your in, the more frequently you need to empty it.

Stuart......Good tip regarding the fuel overflow cannister. I had not checked it yet, so I just went out to the garage and pulled it off. It was bone dry on the inside. I went ahead and flushed it out with gas and did a good cleaning before putting it back on. So, in my case the white smoke was not a result of the cannister being full.

If it were not for the corrupt EPA, that little cannister would have an overflow to discharge fluids when it became full. Hey, here is my latest motto for Trump:

Its Now or Never for America,
Trump NOW,
Killery NEVER!

If that witch wants a no fly zone over Syria, I say put that stinking witch in a hot air ballon and let her float over the soverign country of Syria......and lets see who will get her first......ISIS, Russia, or Assad.

i can image how quick just a single turbo would be, but a twin turbo? that is very radical. hope that bike has a wheelie bar and a parachute on the back of it and the rider is strapped down to the seat lol.
