Nitrous Systems for Motorcycles

Updated on June 3, 2014

Typical Motorcycle Forum Question:

I want to add NOS to my motorcycle; what's the best nitrous system for a Gixxer/ Hayabusa/ Ninja/ Harley/ ATV/ whatever?

Can I make my own system? Should I buy a kit?

Where can I get the best price?

All great questions - Read on for some great answers...


Nitrous Oxide for Motorcycles

Q: Can I make my own system?

A: Yes you can but, If you knew how you wouldn't have asked the question.

Q: Should I buy a kit?

A: Yes, this will get you the best performance, longevity and value.

Bottom Line - what do you want to get out of your NO2 system? Do you want less-than-optimal performance? Do you want an amateurish looking set up? Do you want to ruin your engine? Of course not!

Choosing a Nitrous System for a bike takes more care than for a car:

  • You can't learn by trial and error. If you make a mistake and blow the intake manifold off your car, you'll probably be really upset. If you blow the head off your bike engine, and your legs are straddling that engine at 70 mph, you'll have a whole different set of worries.
  • Your Motorcycle Nitrous System has to look good. You can't hide that rusty, nasty looking bottle in your trunk. You can't hide those hardware store fittings under your hood. Even if you hide your system, you're still gonna show it to some people - it's got to look Good.

If you care about your bike, your reputation and about staying up on two wheels, you'll choose a top quality system that's been engineered specifically for motorcycles.

You can read this whole book, design your own system and then source the parts yourself - or just buy the professionally-engineered system from the folks at NOS and save time and money!
