Hit the nitrous on the track

I got a chance to hit the button at the track. What a fuggen turd. At 4500' elevation, c-14 plus and muzzy map with 60 hp jet, I ran a slow as hell 10.8. WTF!? the bottle might have been to cold, the map might be too rich for the elevation I'm at? I'm running slower with nitrous than with my s/o and custom map. Any insight? I'm going to look for a bottle blanket and bottle heater. i think i also have to get a custom nitrous map for this elevation.


I live my life a quarter-pounder at a time. And for those 500 calories or more, im free. I need FRIESSSS! Two of them. The big ones. Oh, and I need them tonight. You're lucky the double shot of BBQ sauce didnt blow a seam on your nugget box.

1killer1liter, I know we talked off line but I never asked you about your system,
what safeguards do you have? On, my camero I had so many that if one of them was not activated then the nos never kicked in. For example:

RPM limit switch....If not at the proper RPM then no NOS
Wide open Throttle...not wide open, then no NOS
Fuel Regulator....not enough pressure, then no NOS

Any chance one or more of these was not right when you hit the bottle on the track? I'm sure guys like Eric or other running NOS will can give you way more tips, just wanted to state the basics first. Good luck with that man, I would say WTF too because I seen you run better out here in Sac.

C-14?? you don't need to run c-14 I'd guess thats the beginning of your problem. run a splash of race gas (110) in with premium pump gas and call it a day..
c-14 will never run good in a bike like that. your not spraying a car son.,
the load presented on a bike is nothing like the load placed on a car so the chances of detanation are much slimmer.

I have a friend that runs asphault snowmobiles and they have 1000cc motors that turn about 275 horse at the crank n/a and he runs c14+

Check over the obvious stuff. Pull your plugs to see if they look like the cylinder is running rich or lean which in your case I would be looking for a rich condition. Also something obvious and stupid to check for is if you have the tank oriented correctly. The opening for the valve of the tank needs to point down and forward because of the siphon in the tank. Also, you may want to put a pressure gauge somewhere inline of the nitrous supply line. You need to have about 1000 PSI+ in line pressure for optimum performance.

Muzzy recommends c-16 be used with his nitrous kit. The place I went to did not have c-16 so I used c-14+ instead. I usually don't run race gas in the bike, but I didn't want to take a chance of blowing a motor because I didn't follow instructions.

My friend that has nitrous on his car says it hits soft. I would have to agree. I didn't really feel anything when I hit the button. Felt like a slow N/A bike.

I don't have any safegaurds to shut the nitrous off.

c-16 is boloney on the amount you are spraying AND the fact that your only going to be spraying for about what 7-8 seconds?? I couls see if you were running top speed blasts or somoething but not at the track..
c-16 may work for you as well if you didn't add any fuel to the pc for NOS.
if your adding fuel through the pc3 AND running c14 (or 16 or whaever) the bike will run like ass..
where was your MPH in comparison to where your normally at??

if you didnt feel nothing when you hit your nos its not working right.60 hp on a bike you should really feel it.i hit mine and have to hang on tight or ill fall off.your nos aint working so your running it rich so you are losing power that is what is happening.
