Default nitrous.. really?

So I was checking out ebay for gear and found this..


really? Nitrous? Anybody using this or is it a complete waste and all hype? I am intrigued but at the same time skeptical and hesitant to subject one of these motors to the possibility of making it a bomb. (looking at that sentence and my bike as a whole, that might be redundant..)

As an oxidizer, it'll assist the burn of almost any combustible fuel. However, unless you have a blueprinted motor designed for it you'll pop it soon enough

NOS = disposable engine

I've not messed w/these lil boost kits and prolly wont, but I've heard that their regulation (amount and duration) is sloppy as ****. If I were to do such a thing to my poor bike for a weekend of fun - I'd valve it better.

GEEZE!
No, the nitrous is for suckers who will buy anything they are told will boost performance. Just like the boost bottle.
I'll use my flea market voice...."Put it down, walk away."

yeah. all this feedback is exactly what I was thinking.. I'm looking into the tuned pipe option as well as SpookyTooth's CNS Carb.. Anyone try one of those or have feedback? Also waiting for the slant head replacement for my 66cc to come back in stock..

I've used the "Nitrous" kit on one of my builds. I used it a novely item although it funtioned as designed. I never shot the full 16g bottle all at once but in short spurts you could feel the increase in power. The rpm's increased greatly. No....the motor never blew up!! It is still on the road today....

Geeze Red, you've made my statement a little awkward now.

I honestly figured the same thing Joe...that a shot of nitrous would bust one of these quick!!!

RedB's post makes me want to put one of my scrap engines in a bike and see if I can spit the crank out on the ground....

As he pointed out though, he was careful to meter it. I'd say it's definitely not one of those "suggested" performance upgrades. Without some knowledge of the stuff, you will ruin an engine.
