I am running straight NOS and it is the shit yo!!!

No, really I run either 87 or 89, I was told by my mechanic that all it really needs is 87.

Im forced to use premium (91 in CA.) cuz Kawasaki said I have to due to 12.5:1 compression ratio :(
~After jetting, it kinda kills the superior MPG of the bike compared to a cage on 87 at 26 MPG....

Re: 93 octane?

Here in AZ, the best available is 91 for about $1.60 a gallon (Aug 14 '02)... how much does 93 run per gallon out in FL?
The price today at the Mobil station by my house is $1.56 per gallon for 93. Thanks for reminding me I need to fill up today :)

At the Shell station where I get most of my gas it is currently $1.61 per gallon. The county I live in recently passed an extra gas tax, so it is a bit cheaper in some of the surrounding counties.

93 octane plus octane boost.:twofinger

93 octane is about the same 1.65 depending on where you choose to go. I like to go to Mobil or Exxon....not them crappy gas stations. I heard that somewhere in florida a gas station was putting water in there systems. Owner must have a vehicle that runs with H2O. Dumb idiots probably was one of them discounted gas stations.

:finger:

High octane burns slower, it's like retarding your timing, my street bikes run 87, my race bike will die if I don't run 110 octane
never ever heard that before, that it'll mess up your timing i mean, you sure about that? with 93.5 as far as i can tell bike runs just fine, never noticed a decrease in intelligence of the timing, as i would think it would affect the power and i would notice

One of the salesmen where I work got a tank of water in his Mustang from a Texaco station awhile back. It was about 400 bucks to get things straightened out. The company finally paid for it, but they fought it for awhile.

Octane doesn't change your timing, it has the same effect as changing you timing. The fact is 1/2 the people can't feel a 10% difference in performance and we are talking in the 2% range( that # is a guess, but it is not a wild guess. I have a Dyno at work and have spent lots of time testing things, fuel is just one of those things.

The GOOD stuff baby!~!~!~!

I use 94 octane fuel. cost is 84.9 cents per litre here in B.C. canada. it costs a whole 12-14 bucks to fill up the 20 litre tank.
conversions= 4 litres per U.S. gallon.
tank is 5 gal on my bike. so there! :D :twofinger :D yes i know fuel costs more here but it sure beats walkin.

yo?

yer bike may be smaller unior, and in the RIGHT hands it may be faster (especially if it has fuel). i have passed 6r's and r6's and even a 750 gsxr on the outside lane of many corners. in any engine size, (grouped in cc classes)it isnt how much hp u have its how much skill the rider has. without skill power is NOTHING!


it may be a sport tourer but its an azzkikr!
