How about you back up your opinion with some facts? I have used it and noticed that my bike ran alot crisper and really ripped. Not to mention it smells great IMO. Go buy yourself 5 gallons and try it out on your own. Make sure you store it in the metal container though, because it will lose its oxygenates if you don't.

I bought 10 gallons from Temecula motorsports. My bike hated it! It gummed up my carb. Did not have the crispness like klotz. It goes bad extremely fast (even they tell you it's only good for a couple days). It also seemed like I lost some power with it compared to the Klotz. Blew some more smoke and made my house stink for 6 months.

Did you even re-jet?

Did you store your fuel in a metal container?

Being only 17, I cannot financially afford to run this fuel all the time and will probably not be able to buy some for a while. If I had the money, you'd bet I'd have a 55 gallon drum in my garage. :cry:

I had the bike tuned by a pro. and the gas went from the metal can to the tank and then I rode.

You know, for that price I will stick with 91 octane!! By the way have you heard anything about running a K&N filter in the yzf?? Thanks for all your input!! Matt :cry:

I have not heard to much about it. But some say it's the best filter they have had. I don’t know hardly anything about the K&N's for motorcycles.

Were are you located in Murrieta? I’m up in French valley by the prison. Do you just ride tracks?

DAMN, I'm heading out Halloween. I'll be at glamis with a group of friends on the 30,31,1. I'd love to go but I cant take anymore time off from work. Well I have to see if there going to give me this time off. If not I may be able to get the weak before. I'll P.M. you my home and cell phone numbers. Then we can hook up and ride some time. I mainly ride trails, desert, and dunes and rarely motocross.

This is a funny post. I'm sorry I am not trying to be rude but... I guess the reason I think its funny is because I know the benefits of it. Once you use it you'll probably laugh too. Just bump all your jetting up 1 and go rip. The smell is just a small added bonus to what you get from this gas.

FYI: careful with the fumes they give serious headaches. Also dont let it touch your skin. This stuff evaporates weird. If you pour alittle on something you'll see what I mean. Regular gas just sits there, this stuff just floats away or something.

ok I can take some bad info on this board, but this is @!$##@$#@!$ ridiculous..To say VP U4 is bad is like saying I can beat RC! I have been using U-4 since it came out in my 450 and although it is expensive it will make your bike run better than it ever can on any pump gas. It adds approx 2-3 hp, you do not have to rejet for it (I do not care what anyone else says about this) It will gum up your carb if you leave it in your carb for extended time (like all gas)- I drain my tank & carb floatbowl every weekend - takes 1-3 min(big deal). If it is stored in metal can like all gas is supposed to it will last years. I have not used Klotz - and have no intention of trying it.(i do not know who even sells it here) VP knows race gasoline and U4 is the best race gas I have used in my 4 stroke. It will never rob power from your bike unless your bike is set up crappy in the first place.....

my 2cents... :cry:

Ga426owner - do you know about octane boosters? I started a thread couple of days ago when we got our dyno runs back, Fast Foward increased BHP by 10-12 at least. Usuall short sighthed remarks about fudging and lying etc, but its genuine. Need someone who knows about this stuff to either back it up, or come up with a soultion to prove otherwise.

      Selling an FMF Power Core 4 exhaust system off my 450FX. Exhaust has 80 hours and is 100% functional. This will also fit the 14-15 YZ450F and 16-18 Wr450F. If needed I can also include new muffler packing although it does not need it.

      I have a 2008 YZ450F with a stock header pipe and Pro Circuit T-4 Slip-On Exhaust. I'm 99% sure the slip on is shot because its loud as hell and when I take it off and shake it it rattles. I would repack it but the screws are all stripped ect.
      Anyways I've gone over the carb multiple times and I've got it running pretty well. The only issue I have with the bike is that it sputters and pops around 1/2 throttle when I hold it there. When I give it full throttle from any RPM it runs great or when I give it about 3/4 throttle it spins up like a top to redline.
      Initially the popping and sputtering was way worse I made the situation better by moving the pilot jet up in a few sizes from a 45 (stock) to a 62. The issue has gotten way better since then but I'm not super sure what to do from here. Should I keep moving my pilot jet up in size because that's a pretty large jump right? I tried changing my needle clip position but that didn't help much if anything it just made starting it worse and little to no impact on the ride.
      Any input on this would be helpful. I don't want to buy other slip on. Also as for the rest of the carb I'm very sure everything else in it is what it needs to be at. I've replaced all the gaskets and O-rings cleaned all the jets, valve holes ect. fixed the accelerator pump timing. I just thinks its strange that my pilot jet size is going so far from the stock 45, but all symptoms point to the bike running lean.

      Hi I was wondering if y’all have been using a 450 on your YZ250F?

      Excel Takasago 17x3 front and 17x5 rear supermoto wheels with Metzler M3 tires in very lightly used condition. Less than 200 miles total on the setup. Warp 9 spokes. Rear has a Talon hub with 45T Sunstar steel sprocket and OEM rear disc, and front has a polished OEM Yamaha WR450F hub (for the stock speedometer), with a Motomaster 320mm disc. Included is a DID gold o-ring chain, 14T front sprocket, and front brake caliper adapter for a truly turn key setup. Everything is in excellent condition, not a single scratch on these wheels. Came off my '11 WR450F, but will fit many different Yamahas with 20mm front and 22mm rear axles. Asking $1400 plus shipping.
      **Will be driving up near Atlanta, then to northern Louisiana, OKC, and down through Dallas and Houston, TX soon -- can meet or deliver if in the area (Aug 31-Sep 9)**
