92 octane or destruct??

read that the new bikes(mx'ers mainly) requre at least a 92 octane ?? or else they start to knock and eventually just blow...what's the deal? and they said a bunch of gas stations are lowering their octane to 91 just so ppl will have to start buying race fuel...? im kinda confused, never read that u had to run like top of the line gas in them...doesn't matter nehow though, i don't own one...lol

This could get long and/or complated [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

But yes, you should use 92, at least, Its not that higher octane has more "power" in fact the oppsite is true. The higher the octane the slower it burns to prevent preignition under load and thats what causes the damage.... SO if your just babying it you could use the El-cheep-O gas and have no problems.

But come AWN, gas is cheap you fawker [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: 92 octane or destruct??

toluene form your regular hardware store can be added to raise octane levels. that is mainly what the big companys use to raise regular 87 to premium 91-92. there are abundant internet articles on it is you look around
