MORLEY Buffer Boost Pedal

US pedal specialist Morley offers a simple but effective method of maintaining signal quality when using several stompboxes. Review by Roger Cooper.

Introduced last year, Morley’s Buffer Boost is intended to rectify the loss of level and sound quality that can occur when several stompboxes are linked together. As the pedal’s name suggests, this improvement is achieved via a buffer circuit that adds some extra oomph, either at the front or end of the signal chain, as desired. In addition, up to 20dB of controllable clean boost is on tap and tailor-made for solo work.

Building a 236-bhp, Turbocharged Testastretta V-twin

Ducati’s extroverted Diavel already tends toward excess in terms of style, horsepower, and, of course, acceleration. With a tuned-for-torque version of the superbike-derived Testastretta V-twin mounted in a long, low, dragstrip-ready chassis, the Diavel delivers fast-forward acceleration that few motorcycles—production or otherwise—can as easily match. For a certain breed of two-wheeled extremists, however, even too much isn’t enough. Chad Wells, the builder of this turbocharged Diavel, is one of those guys.

Predictably, this isn’t Wells’ first turbo bike. “I had already built a Hayabusa with a Stage 1 turbo kit that made decent numbers,”

Turbocharging MV Agusta’s Brutale

Somewhere in the vast, click-bait wasteland of YouTube is a video of a tuned Toyota Celica with all its radiator hoses blowing o in unison. That’s what happens when you get greedy with turbo boost and try to contain too much of it behind a flimsy stock head gasket. And that’s just a flesh wound. Turbo builders aren’t just resourceful wrenches, they’re curators of museums of melted pistons, cracked cylinder heads, and assorted other components pushed beyond the breaking point.

Building turbocharged motorcycles is even worse. In a car’s engine room, there’s at least space to
