How's your bike run? Noticing any problems? The carbon build up is normal, unless there's an excessive amount. By that time even your grandmother would notice its not running well :cry:

Believe it or not, that mufflers got 21,000+ miles and that screen has never been cleaned, it doesn't need it. Got no doubt my entire piston, valves, and pipe are in the same condition.

Here's the real shocker, I'm only running 8 ounces of VP c12 leaded per tank or every other. It's worked with pump fuels in Texas and Florida panhandle. Cost is about .40cents per tank using 8 ounces.

I've about to use the last of my VP, and have been testing the Sunoco purple 110 leaded. Seems to work, but I do think the VP is cleaner, However the sunoco is cheaper by about a dollar per gal, so we'll make do in the future here shortly with the Sunoco, but really like the VP.

The Fuel dealer was telling me the sunoco is made from crude, but VP is synthetic. They used to carry the VP but the shipments weren't reliable.
