    Default NOS on a 1100? Anyone?

    Anyone do NOS on their carbed motorcycle?
    How did you run the plumbing to the manifold?
    I was considering trying to devise a orifice for the vacuum balance ports on the head, would be a perfect spot to inject at.
    TIA

    Don't know if this helps you, but when I originally bought my drag bike it was set up for nitrous.
    You can see where they put it, right under the intake.
    Can't help with the plumbing, as I took all that off the first weekend. (Along with most everything else in the photo)

    When you get it all set-up,make sure to tighten all the connector fittings;if it leaked with your head tucked-down on a long ride you might end-up laughing so hard you'd fall off the bike.

    Initially, so did I., then I saw the OPs member name, and figured NITROUS! More bang for your buck.


    Hunting ETs on the strip. What do you use the calibre for winmag4582001? Cape Buffalo? Elephant? Lion?

    Cool. That's what I was looking for. Looks like they just tapped the injectors from the bottom. Thanks.

    My youngest son raced open wheel all over the western US when he was 12-16yrs old. I remember one of his techs telling him, "If you ain't breaking sh!t, you aren't running it hard enough!" That was advice that put him on the podium many times. Hold that right foot until you see God, tap the brake, hit the apex and off to the next.
