nitrous on a motor with kawis thin head gasket

HEy guys wondering if anyone has run a 20-30 shot of nitrous on a motor with the kawi replacement thin head gasket? Im thinking baout adding a lil juice to the mix but was wonderign how nitrous would do with mabey 13:1 compression?

Kawis gasket is .2mm smaller right and for ever .2 smaller it adds .25 of a point in compression so we'd be at abotu 13:1 compression correct?

Im also doing full exhaust, intake, power commander, stacks, and the kawi racing cam. BTW

Thanx guys!

nope i ran 90 hp dry kit all last summer. i went threw about 13 1lb bottles. i used the mps instant rich fuel mix and never had a problem beside my bottle being mounted wrong.if your not hanging on tight your flying off. i switch it to a 60hp because i was afraid of engine problems. but the bike runs like new.

I have the same setup but I also have the 2mm kit I run a full 40 shoot nos on the motor and its damn leathal and scary

Buddy of mine has a busa with a turbo that slams 250 horses to the pavement and he wants to run

I say it will make for a really interesting run if you know what i mean

Nitrous likes compression. You will get more out of a 30 shot when running a higher compression ratio. With the new setup (muzzys thin head gasket, degreed cams 105/102) I put the 30 shot back in after trying a 60 shot on the stock motor. The 60 shot was just stupid power. Hit the button and WATCH THE F*#K OUT! You will be fine with a 30 shot on a stock wheelbase. Be sure to have a shift light set to come on a little lower in the revs than you would shift. By the time you see the shift light, transmit the action to your foot and shift, you will be close to the rev limiter, if not hitting it. It revs REALLY fast when using nitrous.

On a side note, I called powercommander last week to find out about the software upgrade to switch between 2 different maps with the pcIII USB. Its not software like I was previously told. It's hardware, a new piece added to the trunk. PC doesn't know when it will be available.


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.
