Hey folks, the turbo bike isn't quite ready, so I'm bringing the nitrous bike, and shooting for the 208.087 APS/F-1000 record. Scott Guthrie Racing is helping me out with logistics and aero tips.

To be considered an 'Altered' class bike (the "A" in APS), I'm running a cut down tank, less than 1 gallon. It also lets me tuck under the fairing a little tighter.

This bike made 178hp on pump gas, stock displacement, with a Competition CNC head and race intake cam. Tuned for dry nitrous at Livengood Motorsports, it made 240hp on C-16 fuel, with retarded ignition timing.

With this tuneup it ran 218.7 mph at the final meet of last season. Hopefully it will run close to that, maybe a little better.

If it runs OK and sets a record, I have a tuneup for a larger nitrous jet (52 vs 41) set up for a Walbro fuel pump. With the 52 it makes about 280hp with a richer AFR and more timing pulled.

I'll take some onboard video and post it next week, as long as it doesn't melt :)

:) Yep I left my Pitbull in my buddy's trailer, and the cheapo kept me going over the winter.

Well the motor ran great, tune up was right on, but the chassis was twitchy; it wanted to headshake in 5th and 6th when the nitrous came on. I made passes at 205 & 203, rolling in & out of the throttle, and a 210 pass staying in it a little longer to nip the 208 record. I will go through the chassis before it goes out again. It was a fun weekend, no one got hurt, I didn't break anything, so I'll try to go stupid fast next time. I'll post a video in a few days, but I didn't get the 210 pass.

Thanks :)

Here's video from the 205.5 pass Saturday morning, I had to roll out of it for a second in top gear to straighten the front end from shaking.

Nice job Dean, missed you at Texas a couple weeks ago. My turbo bike was also not ready so I brought my nitrous zx-10 and did 192.6 mph. Stock motor, 55hp dry shot with an MPS spyder kit. She's maxxed out until I get into the motor.

Bike looks awesome dean! You think the shake is coming from the suspension settings?

Thanks folks. Congrats Doug, 193 at Texas is flying, especially for a stock motor ZX10, WTG. I'm hoping to come out to Beeville in May with the turbo, maybe see you then.

Not sure what is up with the twitchiness, it was solid last year. Haven't had a chance to touch it yet, I'll post up if I find anything. I did box up the stock damper to send to Dan Kyle tho :)

I have the same bike Solar yellow and I saw your bike up at Livivngood motoesports. He put a muzzy m10 short pipe fullsystem with a tune and I love it. What kind of gearing should I run I have 17-40 stock now but I'd like to change it up. Oh yeah good luck!!!

Is the ride on that track as bad as it looks in the video? That's some serious speed there, congrats!

I redesigned 2 aspects of my spraybar to flow even more Nitrous at the same jet size. Let me know if you want more info :hello:
