Way back in 1984 I bought a fj1100 silver and red and went thu the same
stuff you did including the exploded clutch basket anyways I was making
105 on the motor and 165 with juice but I couldn't make any more power
even with bigger jets well after running aprox. 300 to350 bottels of nitrous
thru the thing one of the pistons came apart.
the bike is sitting in my shop someware in the back
it was a good sleeper bacause I kept the bottle in the tank bag and the bike
had those engine covers.

> Accel coils
> Vance & Hines Supersport Kit, Quitech II baffle
> Factory ignition advancer
> Bike dyno'd 113 horsepower to the rear wheel, 13, 000 km's on motor,
> 18 degrees Celsius outside
> Year 2:
> Same as above, but with nitrous kit, phase II jets bike dyno's 150
> horsepower exactly to the rear wheel, approx 30,000 km's on the bike,
> similar dyno conditions, different dyno - ignition advancer removed

> Year 3:
> My darkest hour.  Bent valves, scorched pistons, burnt seals, blown clutch
