You can run a premium 91 octane through it with no problems, I like to run race gas through mine. You don't have to go to that extreme, but it's just something I have always done, and I have never had a problem with fuel.

I only put premium gas in my Z. Hawk-How much does race gas cost? I wouldn't spend my money on race gas for a stock quad, i think u should mill ur head and put that race gas to use.

You only need 91 octane for optimum results. I will probably have to mix after my 440 but I don't know the compression yet. VP came out with a new race fuel for 4 strokes called Ultimate 4. It's about $8 a gallon and gives 3hp. I will give it a shot when I get my bike back. It does however have a horrendous smell.

thanks guys, just gettin ready to buy my first tank of gas and wasnt sure what the dealer put in it. WP, they make a gas additive thaqt makes the gas smell a certain flavor (root boot, grape, pina colada, etc.) It doesnt effect speed or HP at all. It was originally designed for alcohol dragsters. Check it out.

I have been putting Regular 87 octane from Rickers in mine and it runs fine.I really dont think high octane will help, but it wont hurt either.
Where do you get the smelly stuff? I like the smell from a 2stroke thats running Klotz :roll:

hey you live close to me. 15 or 20 miles. Do you ever go up to Barnies farm? East of Fairmount. See my post about dirt drags in Gaston?
