  1. Hello all was just wondering if any one has put a octane booster in their bike i got a fz6 2006mod and if it mad any difference and or what type u used or what seems to work. :?: :?: :?: :?:
    Thanks lewy

  2. Your bike will go faster, since you've made the bike lighter by expending the contents of your wallet.

    Increasing the octane of the fuel will do nothing to the engine's power unless the bike retards the timing due to running lower than recommnded octane fuel.

    The best result you can achieve is by filling it with the recommended fuel.

    Increasing the octane rating over what manufacturers recommend is usually only necessary when the compression ratio has been raised or forced induction is used.

    Edit: I remember seeing a few tests on these sorts of additives, and only about 25% actually did what they claimed... still worthless in your case.
  3. Thanks Cammo that was a good comment i gess i will save my $ then
  4. Just use a premium fuel. 95 octane is probably recommended for the bike anyway..
