30 shot dry is fine.

The problem with wet is the complexity of the install goes way up as well. Another solenoid with another fuel pump, extra lines, wiring ect.

I used Nitrous for many years on one of my street bikes. It was a ZX7R with a built ZX9 engine. I was runnning a 50HP (advertised as 60) shot WET system and a 2 1/2 pound bottle and typically could get 5-7 top speed runs out of it.

I never used a bottle any size less than 2 pounds because it grew old getting the bottles refilled all the time.

My guess is you will get no more than 2-4 passes out of it, if that many.

I wound up buying a big car bottle of eBay, 20 pounder, and transfered the nitrous from the big bottle to the little bottles by freezing the little bottles in the freezer overnight and warming the larger one with a heating pad, or letting it set out in the direct sun, ect, and the nitrous will transfer right over without a pump. You can easily transfer and fill bottles this way.

Most places I went to didn't won't to mess with filling the little bottles as it was to much hassle to do it for so little return for them.

Eventually I grew tired of the bottle filling in general.
