HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAwell my dad has been running the stuff in his race car with 11.75 CR for years and no problems, plus these bikes run better the higher the octane, yes they can run on 87 but the performance suffers if you dont believe me just run 87 for 2 weeks then full up with premium if you dont see a difference then you have a problem, plus with 12 to 1 CR going a little bit higher is cant hurt, i dam near at sea level and i know i can tell a diffence. and no the fuel looked like regular fuel absoultly NO blue tint. plus av gas is not parafin, it is oil that is more refined not just wax that is more refined, parafin is an unwanted byproduct of the reining,
Dude, according to the engineers who built this motorcycle's powerplant at Honda R&D, they suggest a 91 RON, 87 PON, or an 85 MON Gasoline fuel, it's as simple as that. I know of no ECU that can determine the GRADE of fuel being injected into the cylinder, only if the fuel that went in last detonated prematurely. If you've got a dyno around, run a tank of 87 for power, then a tank of that super awesome 114. you'll see a drop in power, i guarantee.well wtf do you call high CR 12 to 1 is the highest i have ever seen possible on pump gas, plus the bike just retards the timing to compensate for the low grade fuel and advances it for the higher stuff, yea sure higher can hurt stuff but not 100, definately 114 but thats designed for 15 to 1 and higher
getting close to a diesel there at 18 to1 and when i said blue tint, i wasnt talking about exhaust, if you knew anything about fuels you would know some grades of fuel have dye in them like 100LL jackass
Just note: if you run u4 you will have to get the bike mapped because u4 will make the bike run leaner and mapping will correct this. +1 U4 does smell good all most makes the price tag go away.Just get U4 race gas. It's made by VP and it ain't cheap, but if you're looking for a kick in the ass, that'll do it. It smells good when you burn it too!
Since when does more MPG translate to more power to the ground???
