Yeah, there are those out their running
high compression, with turbo and nitros!!
But most of them are 1 run wonders and not
streetable machines. You can feasably drop
the compression and run NOS but at that point
man I dunno... Hey it's just my 2 cents.

Hey, let us know. I would love to hear some
wild stuff. I certainly am no NOS expert just
know a little here and there. I'm sure some1
could give you more info.

I would think you could keep stock compression for a 25 HP shot (not sure though...) I would definitely use a "wet" system to help keep the motor from knocking. It wouldn't take long for a high-strung sportbike motor to self-destruct when the knocks start. N2O is fun in a straight line. I would NEVER use it in corner exits though. Can you say "instant highside?" I knew you could.

Edit: Oh, and I would retard the ignition timing for the same reason described above. I would suggest talking to a drag bike tuner or someone who has experience with N2O on bikes. This is something you need to get right the first time.

Thumbs up

1fastchick I'am using nitrous on my GSXR1100 and I love it. Never had a problem with it. I was using a 68hp shot. I have since increased it but I have not been able to get to the track to test it. Who ever installs your nos make sure it is someone that you trust will follow the instruction. The reason I say this is because a few of the guys were I live had the potential for fire, their motorcycle blew up or the bike could have been sprayed at any time riding, idle, or with the key off. I have a switch that turns the nos on only after the bike is running and will only spray at wide open throttle. Hope this helps.

I know someone that did a 9.9 with no wheelie bars and another that did a 9.76 @ 141.7 mph with no wheelie bars. You have to "tie down" the front end to prevent wheelies. I just bought a tie down for my bike and so far it has taken 3 tenths off my time.

As far as nitros goes... I was considering getting a "sneaky pete" system in case I wheelied of the starting line. When that happenes I lose 2 - 3 tenths off my time. I haven't has that problem with the strap yet though, only have 4 runs with it, now instead of wheelieing of the line, I am bogging it down... not enough gas and clutch slip. Gotta practice.

Question

Instead of wheelie bars, I should have said
'No Mods'. I haven't heard of tying the
front end down, what's the purpose - preloading
the springs?

It prevents the "rebound" of your front shocks from happening taking the added assistance of the springs to lift the front end when taking off. Really slick, best performance bang for the buck. Here is an example... When I put a pipe, header and jet kit on my '94 ZX-9, I picked up 3 tenths of a second, $600.00 for .3 sec. - I bought this front end strap for my '99 ZX-9, I picked up3 tenths on this mod also... for $20.00. And that is with a bog off the line, I still haven't got used to the front end staying down.
