    .

    Prosi9,

    Ok, it is possible. But only if you want to end up with an overheating engine and a sluggish initial and a misfiring top end. Reason: Severely retarding the timing will lead flames from the exhaust. During my school days, we did it with a buddy's modded CBZ and had lots of people admiring the bike for the blue flames, especially at night on MG road. Works better with free flow shorter exhausts as the stock exhausts will sometime be too long for the flames to flame out. Makes me all nostalgic now.

    Yes!!! it is possible...if you can

    1. Manage to have some unburnt gases in the exhaust
    2. mange to ignite those gases at the exit of the exhaust.
    Its not about the BHP or the CC, its about one common religion called Biking!!!

    in cars it is done by igniting the exhaust flames by using a spark plug in the end can . exhaust fumes from a free flow can easily be ignited

    +1. Even if it is not illegal, it is definitely a potential hazard....to people behind the bike.

    I heard that there used to be an old bike-Enfield Fury or something, which actually used to give out some flame when it was revved? Can some older members please shed some light on this?

    I would love to do so if its possible, but I would like to do so only while starting my bike, a blue flame with a loud grunt for a few seconds... jst when I start my bike.
    Is that possible in a stock ZMA exaust? How?
