I just bought a 05 and was wondering if running Turbo Blue racing fuel(114 octane) would hurt my bike. I race dirt track cars on the weekends so I always come home with some left over racing fuel. Should I put it to use on my RR or not? The bike only has 1300 miles on it.Thanks

would it hurt anything, probably not, but it sure won't help. Plus, a bunch of the racing fuels have different compositions for different uses, regardless of octane rating which is a next to useless number. I would leave it out of the bike.

Not sure about the composition of the fuel but running a higher octane fuel will cause your bike to lose power on a stock tune. You might be able to pick up a little power by advancing the timing but it would be negligable and could be done on 100 octane.
