Drag Bike Microcontroller Shift and NOS Control System

Found this on another website I read, thought some of you might enjoy it.

Quote:
Race motorcycles are fast, mean machines. One way to make them faster is to use technology to help the bike shift and control a NOS system! That is what Chris P. of the Parallax forum did to his Kawasaki ZX10. Chris has published his code on the forum also so that you can see how he did it and build your own if you dare.

“During the early spring of this year I discovered Parallax and the BS2 OEM board, at this point with a little analog circuitry understanding and little else. However I knew enough to realize that this could make things far easier, less complex and more reliable. I purchased a couple, spent several months tinkering and eventualy converted the air shifter over to operate from the BS2, the next step was to eliminate the relays and timer tying it to the nitrous system which was very simple at the level I was at by the time I’d gotten through most of the WAM kit.

The end result was that now I’ve developed and succesfuly tested an SX18 based system that uses an SX18, 3 fets, and some minor support components that does all of this extremely reliably, and consistantly. The final circuit is installed on a 2004 Kawasaki ZX10 that with very little modification has run as fast as [email protected] mph on a totaly stock engine and transmission, and runs consistantly in the 8.70’s. To most people this may not mean much but trust me, for what it is, its extremely fast.”

nice. high 8's in the 1/4 is pretty good on a mostly stock bike. but of course, the ZX10 is an impressive bike to begin with.

well, not really stock- it is lowered, stretched, sidewinder, pc, auto-shift, and most importantly nitrous is a helluva drug! (for a bike lol)

thats pretty sweet tho that he built that box hisself-but he coulda just bought one, its nothin new.

probably alot cheaper his way, plus you dont get that warm "i built it" feeling if you buy one. the boxes you can buy have alot more capabilities tho if you could utilize them
