    Default Nos

    How well do these bikes handle NOS lol.


    Just curious. I know these GS blocks are used in drag racing to this day, but those can also be built from the bottom up.

    Woukd a stock block even be capable of handling NOS more than a few times?

    NO2 is a cheap substitute for a well built (even pressurized) motor. It is harder on pistons than blocks, and if you are spraying on a worn motor, you're playing Russian Roulette. Honestly-why? A 650 is not a drag-racing machine. If you want to do this, build up an 1150.

    If I were to do it itd just be for an extra oomph to surprise some nicer cars, or If i get beat on too much.

    I'd definitely want to finish and have my fun on this bike before i got another. I really like the early 90s supersports.

    The blue bottle on the side of the bike tends to be a giveaway.

    I know another thing was placement, making it a surprise. If I had two feed systems maybe I could get some small bottles and make it look like part of the shocks.

    Its alot easier to hide this stuff in a cage

    timebombprod, I don't knock you for askin the question. But, it sounds to me like you've got the wrong bike. Pick up what you REALLY want and "suprise" people with that.

    And if you are serious about spraying, plan on rebuilding that motor completely.

    Get a GSX-R 1100. Or a Kaw ZX-11. I would think either of those will scratch that itch.

    I much prefer the mid to late 80's for supersports. '87 GSX-R 1100, '88 Hurricane 1000, '89 ZX-10.

    I definitely do want another, but I like this bike alot!

    A guy down the street has a NOS station in his garage and said if I ever wanna hook something up let him know, I just think this old 4 banger with an extra oomph would make people blink twice before realizing what just happened.

    You are not wrong though I would eventually like a bigger and more agile bike, although the GS does handle really well.
