Without wishing to be at all patronising it would seem there are a lot of people out there who dont know the difference between Nitro and Nitrous, even those who have it !
NITROUS- Nitrous Oxide, basically a bottle of gas that makes your fuel burn more efficiently thereby making more power, it is injected into the inlet manifold (on a carburettor engine) along with an extra shot of petrol. Top picture shows a ZRX with a neatly fitted system, the bottle is sitting inside the swingarm just behind the gearbox. Loads more to it but those are the basics.
NITRO - Nitro is a liquid fuel heavy in oxygen that is mixed with a firing agent usually a small amount of Methanol, hence Nitromethane, the staple diet of Top Fuel bikes and cars. It isnt an additive, its what they run on. So to the people that mail me telling me they have a nitro GSXR, no you havent, unless it looks like this...
Fuel bikes do not use Nitrous, street bikes do not use Nitro. In no way is it the same thing.
