None of us need 500-1400 cc bikes, nor do we need suspension mods for riding around doing the posted speed limit.

To hammer on people for spraying is down right hypocritical.

suspension is way better IMO to get when you compare it to nitrous. it will let you control the bike easier and like above states, keep you on two wheels. tell me what is the point of spraying in the street??? i can understand if you're spraying at the strip but what are you going to accomplsih by spraying on the street?? to make a bike that already can do 10 sec quarter mile faster??

Nitrous by itself is not flamable, it is a stable acelerant. For every 1 part No2 you need 1 part fuel(above what your bike already has). Some bikes run fat naturally so a little nitrous doesnt hurt.

2 common ways to tune your bike; power commander, or remap ecm.

kit is cheap, tuning is not.

What I would do: Get a power commander and install it, get a dry kit and install it(.15 jet). Take the bike to a dyno, make a motor only tune and save that map, then have the tuner make you a nitrous map, run the spray on the dyno to make sure it is safe.

When you are going to spray just install the "spray" map in the pc. You can ride on the spray map, it will just be running a little fat, but if you are going to take a long ride then install the motor only map.

Quite a few people have done what you want to do, so there is going to be a million opinions floating around, you can download a map from the internet, or spray without, but remember all bikes are different, to be safe I'd do what I said above.
Why dry over wet??? I have heard wet was safer

wet is not safe, it will blow up, Im sure youve seen the vids of gas tanks blowing off and all that. Small dry shots are safe. Wet you need to monitor bottle pressure, fuel pressure, purge, and worry about excess fuel puddling and blowing up. on an efi application under a 100 shot, dry is the way to go.

See I heard dry was bad because of how hot it is around here and the fact that you depend on the censor in your airbox to relay diff when you hit the spray because a split sec. and your motor goes boom because if it dosn't hit the censor right goes hay-wire. Though like I said before this is what I heard. I am a newbie to nitrous at the moment. All I know now is what I have heard which is that wet is better than dry. I am kinda lookin into gettin spray on my bike now but havn't because of the wet v.s. dry debate and don't know where to go. Out of all the people I talk to it's 50/50 on safe and reliability between wet and dry but I think that is preference. I do know dry is supposed to hit harder but then again I heard that from the people that told me not to do it because wet is safer. Only reason I posted was because I am lookin intos prayin my bike and am wonderin what is the best (as in most reliable) way to go.

at anyone who defends the right of someone to own/operate a 150+ HP motorcycle who then condemns their desire to bump it up to 200HP. Arguing about the difference in acceptablity between a 150 and 200 horsepower machine is assinine. Realistically you shouldn't be able to own either one.

What keeps me entertained are all of the holier-than-thou cheese dicks who think that they're 's gift to the motorcycle world.

Go win some championships, build some motorcycles, design something worthwhile, change some bad highway/emissions legislation or contribute in some way other than pretending that you're the intereweb , then come back and tell us how stupid we are, and how we all deserve to die.

Until then G.S.Y.O.D.

Edit: last rant wasn't for Andre3K, I actually thought you had some good posts in this thread -- I just liked your admonishment warning folks not to come onto the forum asking questions. I was thinking about all the other "better than you are" folk who previously posted here.

Typically I like the drama that you stir up. I do it myself on occasion. But your close-minded t talking isn't nearly as funny as when you talk t about things that you actually know about.
