Thank you!

I actually gave up on using nitrous for the air shifter. I was having nothing but problems on the track with it so just went to using air from the swing arm.

Not sure if it was how I had my regulator mounted or because the regulator was a couple years old now or if it was where I had my gauge mounted.

I had my regulator mounted to the solenoid mounted to the shifter cylinder. When I would hit the button the pressure would fluctuate and after messing up 3 runs I just said fuck it and went to air. Maybe I'll try it again some day and do some different tests to see what wasn't working right but air is a lot simpler. I just would like to figure out where to mount a mini compressor. The harbor freight one that everybody normally uses was to big to fit in the tail of the gen 4 without some modification to the tail. So just filled the swing arm up via a compressor at the track last time out

I'm putting my Carolina Cycle regulator directly on the Nitrous bottle and the air switch on the ram.

Also have everything oriented to get gaseous and not liquid nitrous out of the bottle, right opposite of how you want it when injecting into engine.

Haven't tried it yet though, but expect it to work great and get 100's of shifts out of my 2lb bottle.

Put a Pirelli MT 75 90/80/17 tire on the front this weekend. Helped lower the bike a bit, just have to watch for pot holes a bit more.



DME fender lowering brackets should be here tomorrow so I'll throw a picture up after it's installed. Looks a bit goofy now if you look for the gap between the fender and the tire

Bike got a few races in this weekend.


Busa was running a 60 shot. I think if he didn't get the jump on me both times I think the bike would pull a bit instead of catching back up. Either way it was a good race

You should post some pictures or PM your setup! I would much rather use it off nitrous so I can use it on the street

^I posted up in your video buddy, but it sounds like that clutch is going bye bye. Hopefully it's just out of adjustment.

Got my DME fender lower brackets in the mail yesterday and threw them on.




Also a comparison of the new tire vs a regular tire I had laying around




Picked up some mr12 yesterday too. Thinking I'll hit up the track one more time and hope for the best.

It kind of sounded that way but I think it's still good, at least I hope so. I think it might have just been the way the screwed up shifting made it sound.

Maybe I should go put some more pump gas in it and try it out before I dump the mr12 in it and go back to the track. The gas light was on the whole time and the 3rd pull the bike fell on its face in 1st and it didn't have enough gas, I didn't include that video

mr12 not a dump in fuel, needs specific tune.

Nice thread! Nice bike! Tasteful mods! Subbed!

It can be... although it will only make ~1/2 as much power as it would be without a specific tune. Just dumping it in you'll gain ~5WHP. With specific tuning, it will net you another ~3-5WHP.
