86 SEi with NOS

Postby roadwanderer2 » Wed May 18, 2016 9:47 am



here's a question for ya's.......just throwing this out there.....has anyone ever heard/know/ or known of a GL1200 fuel injected bike with a NOS system on it and is it possible to hook a NOS system up to the bike's engine without much modification to the electrical/fuel system or blowing the motor up.

just curious.

PINGEL makes a NOS for fuel injected bikes, might be a starting place for you. Man you always have a project going on, this one is cool 8-)

NOS usually means NEW OLD STOCK. Is that what you're talking about? Inlighten me here. :(

i was toying around the notion of a nitrous kit, you know, some are on race cars, hot rods, "go fasts" and alike.

there are quite a few different makers of NOS systems for bikes. i looked at a few i found on YouTube, but nothing that explains what if any "extra things" are necessary to do the hook up and what the end results will produce. i'll have to check into it further and maybe get a few more "opinions" on making the conversion financially and parts prudent to the application on my SEi. i need to find out if any "internals" of the bike's motor may require "upgrading" is needed, IE: electrical, fuel system, pistons, rings, valves, cams etc.

i'll do some more research on it and let ya know what i find out.

Go Baby GO! I feel if you can get the nitrous into the air cleaner box it will work. There is some kind of metering or jet to limit the flow. I have a buddy who runs it in a vintage Triumph Cub, his tank is in the frame and he turns it on with a horn button. Man, you should here that thing wind up!

It's like Viagra, too much and you'll blow up but it will be great for a while!! LOL

hey rusty, anythings possible with the right amount of $$$ and a little imagination. maybe you can get in touch with him and give him my email address and i can talk to him about the set up and what i need to do to get one installed on my bike.

i was thinking more of using it out on the interstate once im up to highway speeds,(60-70 mph), 3-4 lanes wide when i have a clear open road without a lot of traffic where i can run it for a few miles at a time, or if i needed to get out and pass a slower 18 wheeler.

even though i have no problems with doing that now, it would be nice to know i have an extra "boost" of power if and when i needed or wanted it, or keeping up with some of the more powerful bikes out there. i know this bike isn't a crotch rocket, but it sure acts like one with all the power and torque it has especially from a standing start, like from a stop sign or a red light.

I think you will find that there are timing changes to be done with a different ignition box . depends on how much you use . the ignition I'm sure would need to know when you hit the button and change things or blewy . If you are looking for longevity I don't believe it is the way to go . that said I also dont know how much these engines can take . I went turbo and 104 octane propane with my rotary and doubled the HP. at around 10 lb. boost . a little water injection to cool the intake air and help control pre-detonation and it loves it all I need to do is keep it under 8000 RPM and no more than 10 lbs boost , a bit of an ignition change and it will do it all day long , it does take a lot of parts and time .. just saying ,,, I guess mostly I'm not a nitro fan but to just give it a little sniff you might get away with it for a while .

I have been thinking about sprucing mine up but want to keep the long haul dependability .. I'm sure there are guys on here that have played with the stuff .. Good luck I will be watching for some info also .

well now see, thats something i have to consider also. how much can the bike's motor handle without frying the piston rings or sending a rod thru the block. i dont want to turn my bike into a rocket ship, just a little extra "oomph" when i want it. im sure it can be done, but i wold have to weigh the cost vs end results without tearing my motor apart or spending hundreds of dollars to get it done.

I bought my SEi because of the performance benefits plus it just tripped my trigger. Have not gotten it on the road legal yet.
So far I have no desire for "MORE POWER". I'll see if I can locate my old buddy with the Triumph...Rusty

thanks Rusty, i'd appreciate that. there is a big difference between a carb'ed 1100 and the fuel injected 1200. as much as i like my 1100 for its age appealing looks, i have to admit i love my CFI 1200 for its comfort and its overall performance.
