    If you can't figure out how to make something so simple, then you shouldn't.

    And GPR70's are great.

    I have a limited knowlege and could possibly make one, but I'ld probebly end up making something that will blow my ass off

    Anyway, It was just a stupid idea off the top of my head, I doubt I'll go any further with it

    I was thinking of the exact same thing a couple of days ago...I wasn't seriously considering it though

    I remember I followed a Skyline Godzilla over the Takas a while back and every time he got on the gas flames came out the exhaust.

    The set-up I imagined was to have a small separate container full of gas with a little pump on it, then run a small brass tube with a brass spray jet at the end. The brass tube would run inside the exhaust almost to the end. Hit a switch to turn the pump on and bob's ya uncle.

    • Some of the problems I haven't yet considered are:
    • Do you need to shut off the spray jet...when the pump shuts off there would still be fuel in the line, I assume this would vaporise and force it's way out the tube anyway so may not be a concern.
    • Blow back into the tube causing the system to explode.
    • Getting a WOF with this kinda system installed.
    • Melting the plastic fairing.
      Burning my pillion's arse.
    • Burning my arse.
    • Blowing up the whole bike.
    • Causing a forest fire.
    • Having flames sucked back into the engine and burning stuff that shouldn't be burned.

    As you can see I gave this very little thought cause although I think it would look cool, the risks are just too great.

    Now...I don't want anyone to flame me for my comments here

    Dunno about flame-throwers per se, but I've had a couple of bikes (TL1000S, KLX650) that did pretty mean backfires...

    GPR70s are awesome on dry roads but a bit unreliable in the wet (during brisk wet-riding that is, not commuting).

    My two cent's and rusty memory worth.

    Drill a hole into your muffler, secure a spark plug in to it conected to a switch and the battery, and run your bike mixture rich. Your exhust will have unburt fuel in it, give it lot's of revs and then switch on the spark plug.

    Disclamier, this may blow your muffler/ arse up, do damage to your bike, etc. Do so at own risk.
    Speed limits are just a suggestion, like pants.

    Looks like the fool in that second shot is trying to blow out the flames

    Friend tried once - spark plug in the tail pipe, fuel injector at headers, electric fuel pump. So so success.

    Looked best when working but was more fun when it wasn't

    my Gb was brilliant at it, had a mild cam from god knows where, as well as some different type of timing. so if you shut the throttle/revs down, too fast. exhasut valves open up and bang, bang bang. Good for about 2-3 foot flames.

    hmm most riced/hotted up cars of that type ie evo/wrx/boy racer should shoot the old flames out the back. The V8 supercars do it. Think its something to do with cutting the spark off throttle and unburt fuel igniting on hot exhaust

    Dunno about the V8 Supercars but most cars cut fuel on the over run,they don't cut spark.

    As a friend of Alarumba, I can tell you that he isn't serious about this, he just likes to imagine stuff :P Not that I can talk at all, though...
