I am looking for a 50 shot wet nos kit. I am getting headwork and cams in the near future and I want a nos kit to get some quick cheap power until then, just to check it out.

you really dont need to run a wet kit with todays bike unless your going for some other sorta extreme nitrous gains....

If you run a multifunction hub along with the power commander you can wire it to automatically switch to a much richer map for the nitrous, I have ran a 50 shot on my 10r before but backed it down to a 30 shot or so.

what year is your 10r???

what was the reason you backed it down? I am also looking for a nitrous setup. Everybody in Vegas wants to put a wet system on. I would prefer the dry just because of the price difference. The bike primarily is just for drag racing.

just because I used to only have a 1 lbs bottle and didnt want to run out so frequent, that and I liked to ride around stock ride height and a 50 shot puts the front end in the air VERY quick.


it will all depend on your set up how big of a shot you need or can handle

A wet shot can be nice but as Garth said not necessarily needed on todays bikes. He pretty much hit it on the head with hub too. As for as how much you're sprayin. Think about it for drag racing, the quicker you can use the power the bigger difference it will make on a pass. If youre spraying a 50 shot but can only get on it partway thru second on it wont make as big of a difference as spraying a 30 shot from the mid/top of first on.

There are Real Street Bikes that have gone 7.70s with Dry Kits. There are Prostreet bikes that have gone high 7.40s with Dry kits. A properly setup dry kit will be more than what you will ever use.

okay just look at it this way, with a dry shot let's just say for kicks a 40 shot with a medium pill you may end up with 26 to 28 hp but with a wet 40 shot you are more likly to have around 36 to 37 hp maybe a little more or a little less but with a progressive box and a good set up its easier to get the power to the ground than to have one big shot all at once. keith Thompson the mirock champ is now running a wet set-up and Coby Adames AMA real st champ im not sure what kinda system he's using but the word on the street is that's what got them from the 8.0's to the high 7.90's, but for the street a dry shot works wonders, but this is just my .02 cent and if you need a sweet spray bar than GIXX1300R is your man if he's the guy i think he is

I am getting headwork and cams done sometime this year and I am looking at an easy way to sample the power. I was told a wet shot would be less damaging to my engine.

Whom ever told you that has no knowledge of Nitrous. I spray a 150 shot dry. I have sprayed as much as a 200 shot dry but I had to back it down due to my 65 inch wheelbase.

So far the quickest stock ZX10 has run 8.80s with my spraybar. It did have heavy duty clutch springs. The quickest built motor has run in the high 7s

I am using full akra w/ PC V map direct from dynojet, any feelings about the fueling being right with that.

if your using nitrous you need to get your bike tuned to the nitrous of then you'll have problems. you can ball park it by adding about 10-15% fuel but you really need to tune for nitrous to get it right.
