On your bike. I am thinking in the future of possibly hiding a small bottle on th bike. I just finished cutting the mud flap or whatever it is but left just enough to hid a bottle :D Just wanted to get some opinions. BTW this isn't going on the bike till probably next late summer time.

Nitros is the Anti-Christ of stock motors.

1fastchick, You Rock!!! Not that I would ever think of putting NOS on my bike; but just the thought that a female mind can think in such excess blows me away. I told my wife, if our stock ever takes off I want a Viper, and then I want to send it over to Hennessey for a twin turbo ($55,000 extra) which will put it at 7oo rwhp. Why :confused: ... just because :D

Guess you really get into the 1340 eh?

How much of a 'Shot' are we talking HP wise?

I'm asking for a good reason... :)

25 probably be the highest ever.What can you spray to these bikes anyways???. :D If you want to see my webpage you'll get a better hint of what I am into. I mean I had a 12sec vert stang as a daily driver. I love fast cars bikes or whatever thats why I have F-bodies and Mustangs on my site and exotic cars. It all comes down to personal preference. I plan on going to a racing school for bikes too. I want to race :) And not just against girls. I don't like those broken up sports where women are vs women and men vs men. Didn't like it in Karate :D

Well - I'm not sure how much the bike can
take before detonating, I think 25 is
reasonable but what I was going to say was:

If you take it, get it ported & polished,
extrude honed with pistons and cams and
then jet it on a dyno you will wind up with
the same or more power and more torque full
time with no need to refill anything but
the gas tank. NOS is cool don't take me
wrong, but I prefer more permanent methods
of increasing power output. Only thing is
you will have trouble racing b/c most classes
concider heavy mods illegal.

As far as racing, my Buddy Geoff,
(CBR600F4GD) Does track days with NESBA, it's
a great way to have fun - be fast as hell and
safe and learn ALOT. I SERIOUSLY recommend
looking into that instead of racing school.
$75 to join the club and then each track day
is about $125. They have beginner, inter-
mediate and expert classes. You will be in
mixed gender groups and you get about 8
20 minute sessions on the track for each day
you participate. He went once and never
wants to even bother with the street again...
you should see his tires.. Shredded, never
be able to do that on the street. You will
need full leathers.

I did check out your site... Very very
frikkin cool. More power to ya. I
think it was Road Rush that said..
Women who want to be as good as men have no
ambission. I think that's true, I say go for
it!! Women need hobbies as much as men do
but they aren't encoraged like boys are.

Oh yeah, by the way, the R1 will post 10s
without wheelie bars... sub 10's with just
wheelie bars.. You can't use all it's power
it lifts the wheel on hard launches 1st,2nd
and 3rd gear.

Cool thanks. Streetbikes are still a newer thing for me :D eninge specs and mod wise. I mean NOS on a car is easy.I just was looking for something as a small little helper I could use for those "just in case" times ;) But I still would like to go to a racing school just looks like fun but I will check out the other thing you mentioned.

Yeah your right, small fogger NOS for cars
is easy and pretty safe. You have probably
heard that you shouldn't run high
compression and nitros at the same time.
Well your bike and most sportbikes are VERY
high compression (R6 is 12.5 to 1 -sky high!)
so nitros could really push the motor over
it's limits which it is really close to off
the showroom floor.

Just FYI.

Chris :p :cool: :p

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.

Anyone got a rear tire I can borrow?

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. :D

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.

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.

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.

Is it - helps the weight to transfer or
prevents it from transfering to much??
