    m50 and hypercharger

    A friend of mine told me not to even think about putting hypercharger on my bike since you can't ride during the rain. Is that really true?

    A little water will NOT hurt your motor. A LOT of water can put a connecting rod through the case. A little water will bring down combustion temps and bring up combustion pressure, This is why highly turbo charged motors can run a water injection system. In fact just a little water will steam clean the engine internally removing harmfull carbon deposits. You can run a hyper charger in the rain all day long but a major splash from a puddle next to you can cause serious damage. Even so The filter helps to limit the water intake and keep your rotating and reciprocating parts safe.

    Most motorcycle mechanics think Hyper chargers are hoaky, rattle-y and problematic but offer no better performance than a high flow air filter anyhow. They sure do look good though.
    The end result is that it is mostly an asthetic piece and encourages the placeabo effect. It's your bike, if you like it get one. It is highly unlikely that you will cause any damage to your motor; provided you also use a fuel controller to trim the fuel ratio preventing a lean condition.

    Recently visited a cousin and discovered she rides. Honda Shadow, nice bike, but it's got a a hyper-hype hanging off the side and she said she has trouble "keeping up" with her hubby and his friends on their Hardleys. Sad. I'm gonna try and go back soon to see if I can help straighten it out. I suspect a PO put the hyper on it with no other changes and the fix might be fairly easy.

    I have had my hypercharger for about ten months and my bike is my primary means of transportation. I have ridden in the rain a few times with no issue at all. In fact, most of the water that enters the housing drips right out, as it is not watertight. The only issue I have after installing my fuel processor, hypercharger and exhaust, is that my fuel mileage has gotten worse (because she is more responsive and more fun to ride and listen to!) Anyhow, just like with most mechanical projects, it costs money to tinker. Do your research and decide if whatever you are looking at is worth your gamble (or at least look at the return policy).

    When I had my M50 it had a hyper charger on it with the skull cap on it (i think thats what its called-i dont remember). Either way I had the hypercharger, fuel programmer and an exhaust on it. My bike was a primary means of transportation during riding season. Was caught plenty of times in the rain-monsoons included. When I rode it to North Carolina to ride Tail of the Dragon, Cheralhola skyway and hellbender we got caught in the worst rain I have ever rode in. Roads were literally flooded as the rain was coming down so hard with 1-2 inches water flowing down the rain. Add in all the water splashed from traffic myself and the bike got plenty wet. Never once did it ever cause problems. There is also a small opening in the back-bottom of the charger so water and extra air can exit.

    You will not have a problem with water unless you use a bucket and pour water into it-you like the looks then put it on

    Let extra air out?! Doesn't that defeat the purpose? So who is going to be the first to integrate a good looking NACA scoop? I'm a fan of the carbon NHRA funny car hood scoops myself.
