well, after numerous e-mails and phone chats, i took the plunge and bought a new NOS kit from kingzx12r. I showed up at his house at 9 am, and we were on the way to the dyno by 1pm. The kit is uncomplicated and reliable, with very few parts to maintain. the king himself did all the work, and his workmanship is impeccable. no fuckin hack job here, this is perfection we're discussing here. you can look at my bike all day long, you won't find a single hint anywhere of the kit's presence. all the parts and hardware were brand new, no hand-me-downs. on the dyno, the already bad ass red 12 went from a miserly 168.5 hp at the wheel to 202.7 hp, w/o a pc3, which is on it's way. after it's all done, i'm expecting around 210 hp. the power is very progressive and controllable, just a arm-stretching growth of hp. I don't think i will go much further than where i am, i don't want to get into internal mods, although i'm sure that the progressive nature of this kit would easily allow for 230 hp, before things get TOO interesting. Kingzx12r has dedicated a lot of his own time and energy into the perfection of this kit, and i found him to be helpful and eager to educate me on the topic of NOS as a whole. Hats off to ya, king, the kit is awesome. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"> <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"> <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"> <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"> slopoke wasn't so slow before, but now, well, just beware of RED!!!

That sounds awesome. Congrats.

I just wish King would move to the West Coast <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)">



How long does your NOS last with your settings?

This is what I have been wanting to hear!

What did the final cost work out to be?



Is the king interested in doing or helping with

other installs?



Good luck with your new system, let us know

how you make out, and if you have any trouble.

I'm sure it will be nothing but fun.

The kit was installed, set up and ready to rock for $1200.00 CDN. As i mentioned, kingzx12r did the whole job from start to finish, all i did was show up. easy, with the settings i have now, i should be good for 7 to 11 1/4 mile passes, it depends if i use NOS in 2nd gear or not. saberzx12r, i'm positive that king would be willing to help you too, dude. He is in gainsville right now, so give him a bit of time to get back to you. avenger, i'll probably redo my top 1/2 every 50,000kms, or 30,000mi, just like you, dude.<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)">

nope. the key to nitrous is to keep it REASONABLE!!! too many guys out there try to go for too much on engines that are not properly prepared. like king says himself, if your engine is running properly, a 35 hp shot won't hurt it. a good rule of thumb to go by is 30% of STOCK motor hp is safe. go beyond that and you my be asking for some problems, that's why i said before that i'm probably near my personal limit. another big factor to consider is the type of setup you use. a "wet" system entails shooting the nitrous directly into the intake, which makes for a MUCH more dramatic increase in hp, and is a lot less forgiving if something goes wrong. This is the kind of setup i had on my gsxr-1100, and i didn't like it at all. it was hard on parts, and a bitch to control. king's system fogs the airbox, so the nitrous is taken into the engine only as fast as the engine can combust it, to a point. no threat of overloading the motor and breaking parts, if there was ANY risk, i would not have the system, PERIOD!! unlike kingzx12r, i am not sponsored by anyone except my own bank account, and i love my bike dearly. but, i have no worries at all about the system. i'm not an expert on the subject, and any advanced questions should be directed to king. however, i am confident that the zx-12 motor in stock form won't flinch at a mild shot.

oh, yeah, i forgot. another big factor when you engage the nos. it is best between 5000 and about 10800 rpm. avoid redline on nos if you can. not detrimental, but advisable.<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"> <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"> too low of rpm could cause loadup, i suppose.

Whats the difference between Kings kit and Schnitzs kit? I am close to buying something like this for my 12 and want to be sure that I am getting the best kit.

With Kings kit you can be sure of getting all the online support you will ever need. I am sure Ray is a good guy as well, but King is a for sure deal.

Slo,



Checked your bio, no location given, but I am guessing

that you are from Southern Ontario as well.



I'm game for a ride for sure. Let me know when

you wanna meet up.



$1200 Canadian for the NOS system?

I thought the king had said it was cheaper than

that. Not that that is a bad price.

I'm still interested.
