Anybody have nitrous on their bike? Ever seen it?

9 posts in this topic

I saw a YZ450 in the picture forum (hillclimbing thread) about a big bore bit that had a nitrous kit on it that was supposed to be making 75hp. Seems reasonable.

Anyone have any experience in nitrous on a carburated bike (ie, no fuel pump to add fuel).

You could wire in the "blue wire" on a switch to pull out some timing when you were hosing it. The only problem is how do you add enrichment fuel? Does someone make a kit to venturi the additional fuel in with the nitrous? I think that would work, just don't want to experiment on MY bike.

TIA...

You could, but then you'd have to live with a 6000 rpm rev limit. :thumbsup:

A couple of the kits address this by running bottle pressure into the float bowl, thereby increasing the relative strength of the vacuum signal at the main jet (increases the pressure differential between venturi and fuel supply). Crude, but fairly effective without using a fuel pump.

I think it would tear the shit out of the engine and just cost loads to fix it and put it back to normal. Ive also seen a quad with that setup, runs like shit at low-mid revs but sounds normal when you pinn it. I never rode it, scared it was gonna blow up between my legs and send shrapnel it ever which direction :thumbsup:
