stock quad. worth it to run race gas?

just wondering, cuz one of my coworkers said they have a stocker, and they run race gas and it makes a nice improvment, i was wondering if it's worth it., and it's like 8 bucks a gallon over here so i didn't know if i wanted to spend that extra, cuz reg pump prem is like 3.00$ right now, it's went down a little, was ilke 3.30

NOS and alky, man, you cant go wrong. Forget the pipe, intake and controller, just throw a jet engine on the back. LOL.

Dont waste the money on race gas bro, save it up and trick out your machine with bolt ons

Re: stock quad. worth it to run race gas?

ha ha.....yeah, there is absolutely NO reason to run race gas on a stock machine...or even with the "3mods". you are only running 9.2.1 compression!

Re: stock quad. worth it to run race gas?

If it was me, I would not buy race fuel for a bike that is not heavily modified. If the bike had a high compression piston, port and polish, new cam, etc, then it would be wise to run race fuel.

Just my two cents.

Re: stock quad. worth it to run race gas?

When I was at the Rock Springs dunes in Wy there was a really fast "stock" bike that was supposedly running 85 octane. He said that at higher elevation you don't even need 91 with stock internals. In fact he said that he drags faster with lower octane fuel. I have have always put 91 in my machine, but I was wondering what you guys thought.

Re: stock quad. worth it to run race gas?

I have always heard if you run too high an octane you can actually do engine damage, and supposedly the engine runs a lot hotter. I have never run anything above supreme.

This is YAMAHA country, and on a quiet night you can hear a Honda rust.&nbsp; lol
