Very little benefit, if you don't require the extra octane. I run Sunoco 98 and 112 because it's always constant and has a good shelf-life. Pump fuel sucks wang!

I have the same question for my 06 Suzuki Ltr450. I have a place nearby that has 110 leaded race fuel. I’ve tried it in my two stroke KDX dirt bike just for fun. The bike is jetted and piped. Not sure I felt a difference however I loved the smell of the burnt race fuel haha. Not sure if your YFZ is Efi for that year? But my LTR is and not sure if that makes a difference either. I usually leave any of my quads and bikes engines stock but I think if you run “hotter cams” etc the benefit of race fuel is more necessary?
