Methanol instead of gas in a TTR 125

Has anyone ever tried setting up a carb and running a TTR125 on Methanol race fuel ? in the go karts they do it and it helps the air cooled motors run cooler and makes some good power.

Methanol has less than half the energy content of gas.  You'd need a gas tank twice the size to go the same range, assuming efficiency is the same.  It should be roughly the same.  You can get around this somewhat by running higher compression to take advantage of the higher octane.  Methanol is also corrosive so you'd need to deal with that effectively or you'll have bigger issues.
