I woulda bought that ugly B-King if they'd left the S/C on it.
They should have left the "B-King" as an actual Boost-King!

Sport Rider or Cycle World had a GSXR1000 with a similar single sided front on last month(or the month before's) cover. Looked slick.


As for the S/C, the placement is a result of Buells having the airbox where a conventional tank would be. Put a S/C on a modern bike and you'd be VERY happy with the results.

YUP.
I believe the lower pully is turned off of the crank and the the belt turns an impellor supercharger that blows into the airbox.

If someone knows whats going on in detail, please expand for me.

Supercharger kit goes for around $5k i believe, so yeah, super pricey law-down.
Calisuperbikes.com does some badass supercharger work. They can tuck it away under tha fairings and make a super-sleeper(no pun intended). Their site is down right now though.
