Has anyone needed to add octane boost to the M and if so how much?? and how much more power did it feel like you had? or is this a bad idea the m doesn't need it??
In my opinion, you don't need to add octane booster - waste of money!biker-chicky said:Has anyone needed to add octane boost to the M and if so how much?? and how much more power did it feel like you had? or is this a bad idea the m doesn't need it??
well its a good thing i put in colder plugs in my M on my second service mine were whitish should have been brownish, lolmazzuca21366 said:Nos amplifies the combustion of gasoline. Therefore fuel octane and engine timing are critical. If your running to low octane the motor will ping and possible engine damage will occur. The nos also makes the combustion chamber hotter! Ever look at the white portion of a spark plug after some bottles of nos were used? They get all torn up. If your running a supercharger the same rules apply. My buddies VMAX must be run on racing fuel only. Its putting out 15lbs of boost.
Perry, were the dyno runs with the NGK 8's? If so, have you dynoed with the 9's? I know using the 10's will alleviate the knocking but is using the 10's overkill?ppridgen1 said:so wich spark knock detector did you buy and where did you install it .....how hard was it to adjust out the normal cam chain noise.?
I won't go into detail ,but the stock bike with a timing retard removal setup WILL spark knock at low rpm and Will continue to do so until the throttle is chopped, ....even on our standard 93 octane fuel.....you can't hear it with the ear, but the computer that was used and the dyno runs proved it WAS Spark knocking.....keep using the 87 or 89 octane and you'll find out.
LOL oh man I'm just pulling on your chain LOL I'll leave the nos setting up to Hal, LOLcbxer55 said:No way NOS is gonna make your plugs browner! Might tear them up and shred them, but definitely not browner.
Unless you know what you are doing with Nitrous Oxide, stay away from it. FAR AWAY! :crackpipe:
There are more blown up motors out there due to folks messing with this stuff and not knowing what they are doing.
NOS is something like 98% pure oxygen, also known as laughing gas. You have to add a WHOLE BUNCH of fuel to the mixture to prevent being WAY LEAN.
If it is done right, WATCH OUT!
