Absolutely love the RC8R any advice for a new owner would be greatly appreciated, you know sprocket changes etc where to buy a good turbo that sort of thing! had an RC125 many many moons ago and now well that little RC125 went through puberty and fuck me what a beast! (Does anyone else find it addictive to knock down the gears just to get a wiggle on?)

What sort of things would I be looking at to get is it 190RWHP or is that at the crank before the bottom end becomes and issue? Sheer curiosity as I doubt it really needs it.....

If you turbo it, you'll need to lengthen the swing arm, have loads of ugly plumbing on show. It'll ruin the bike. It will not work on the road. It'll cost you a fortune, and will be experimental at best.

That's why people do it to Hyabusas instead.
