maxima hi test

Recommended Posts

If you are talking about Maxima Hi Test octane booster,

sure you can mix it into your gasoline, just don't expect your engine to run any stronger.

 

Unless your engine suffers from detonation, has internal mods that have increased compression or advanced ignition timing,

running high octane race fuel or octane booster additives won't do anything to improve power.

 

Perhaps more of interest, just having a fresh top end, fresh reeds and a few spare jets to tune your engine WILL make a difference how strong your engine feels,

ethanol-free 91 octane premium pump gasoline is all you need, nothing fancier.

Used at the recommended treat rate,your basically buying more gas for $6 a pint.  It's 90% toulene and 10% alcohol, both already ingredient's in you pump fuel.   The octane "points" they advertise are .1.  So a 87 raised 2 points would be  87.2.  The higher the starting octane the less the effect, so a 93 might be raised to 93.1, not seeing the same gain.   Octane comes in big jugs not little bottles. Powerful aromatics that might actaully do something come in metal containers, not plastic.

Any independent test I've read on those say that they are totally ineffective in the real world. If anything they either hurt octane it stays the same or goes up .1 or something totally insignificant. I wouldn't use them as some use methanol which can be very harmful to seals

I'm thinking that despite the clear explanations above you are just hoping for a simple "YES DO IT while I hold your beer buddy!" answer.

 

Go right ahead then as no harm will be done but no improvements either, just your money wasted.

Well is it safe to run it in that bike with that oil?

 

yes, safe at the labeled treat rate. If your curious about miscibility with the oil your using mix some together in your ratio bottle and see how it looks and settles out or stays mixed.  Can be revealing how it's a good thing our bikes bounce around a lot shaking the fuel up as we ride.

Hi I was wanting to know what's the best maxima 4 stroke oil for racing that does not need to be changed all the time. Thnx

 

 

All oil has to be changed often either due to heat or dirt.

 

You can't avoid changing your oil less than every 15 hours (light dust, light riding) to every 2 hours (pro SX).

 

 

If you get premium oil (which is not Maxima....) you can go longer on the heat issue, as good oil does not break down from heat as fast.....but the dirt is still sandblasting your engine from the inside.....

 

Any oil that is catagozied as " ester " or " double ester " synthetic, that would be the best oil....and VERY expensive, like $20 a quart....

 

 

AMSOIL

TORCO

MOTUL 7100 /300v

Maxima's premium synthetic 4T race oils seems to be the 530MX & 530RR,

 

the best Maxima oil for you is perhaps to one you can afford to replace at regular intervals instead of trying to stretch out the lubricant's useful life.

"good" oil changed less often is worse then "not as good" changed more often...

You can get a gallon jug of Mobile 1 full synthetic for $25. We've been running it in our bikes for years. Like Monk said, actually doing the maintenance is the most important thing.
