Seca 650 Turbo - Ahead of it's time


Just thought I would share a cool pic I took of a buddy and his Seca 650 Turbo over 30 years ago. My how time flies. Anyhow, this bike was super fun; and proved to be surprisingly bullet-proof, when subjected to extremely hard use (read abuse). Boost was easily increased by simply replacing a washer in the wastegate with one having a smaller center hole.  :righteous:   

Classic photo! :clap:

A friend had one and it went over 100K miles before grenading. It went in a  big way but was used hard for it's entire life so he had no complaints. Chassis was good enough he stuck a 750 Seca engine in after the departure of the turbo mill. Typical Yamaha durability.
