race gas is a waste of money... unless you have some SERIOUS MODS like milled head, high comp pistons, turbo, head work... anything that would increase the compression... these bikes are made to run their best on 87 to 93..... get off the race gas gives me horsepower band wagon...... lol

Ricky is right on target, unless you run something like U4 or MR9, which are oxygenated, a stock bike won't really see any performance increase from C12, Sunoco 116 etc.
Another thing to be careful of is that unless you are mapped for it, your bike will run lean, potentially burning valves.

Same thing, if it's not jetted for it, it can run lean.

Bike(s):
lots of em






correct, running more octane when the motor isnt going to use it is a waste of money, waste of a good motor because it will run hotter / lean and burn valves.
carbed or injected it does not matter.

In Sante Fe. They have it the cheapest there at Hopps Propane. Bring your own container to put it in. It isn't like a gas pump opperation. The U4 fuel made a huge difference in the NSR50.

Can't beat the smell of a bike running race gas.
