Anyone running VP MR1 fuel.

I do not want to start a useless race gas thread.

I'm wondering if anyone is having good results specifically with VP MR1 without re-jetting? :):) If you are you already know the properties of this race fuel. I want to leave my current jetting alone for a few reasons and it's already jetted perfectly for my mods. I've run other fuels etc. I'm familiar with running different race fuels in my GSX-R and understand for max perf you need to tune it etc. I ran a search on MR1 but most of the info was 2+ years old.


It's probably old because of Ultimate 4. It's pretty much the same thing as MR1 but cheaper and everyone has been running that. Both are oxygenated so you'll have to rejet. I've tried running U4 without rejetting and it sucked. Just record what your jetting settings are and when your not running race fuel just go back to the settings. I wouldnt bother with MR1 unless you can get it cheaper. The U4 is the way to go. Just bump all your jetting up 1. Pilot needle main and your good for U4.

I was "told" and the specs on the MR1 fuel seem to make sense that because MR1 has a lower oxy and oct levels than U4 you do not need to alter jetting. I guess it's like 90 mon so the octane is relatively low for race gas. I've heard that it really does make a huge difference. I had a trusted source tell me he runs it in his race bike and feels a big increase at the throttle/ wheel. I guess it's also is not as harsh on rubber componets.

Someone else said the increased cost over U4 is worth the fact that you can leave it in the bikes but really how hard is it to flush w/ pump. I guess U4 can "crystallize" in the carb. I'm no chemist but know that my dirt bike hates the RTEC ProV1 fuel I run in my roadrace bike so I need to experiment here.

I'm just wanting to be lazy when I ride dirt. I ride trails all over. Soooo most times I'm content with pump but on occasions I'd like to have a "boost" when riding fast trails with faster riders on faster bikes than mine. :)

To say that your bike is jetted perfectly for your mods is a mis-statement. Unless of course your weather never changes...which it does.

The need for jetting changes comes with the simple change of atmosperic conditions, like temp, humidity, and altitude.

This changes ever single day, in every single location, and in most cases can change from morning to evening.

If you aren't willing to change jetting , then you have no business worrying about exotic fuels.

Many think they can simply go to the local gas station and fill er up with Turbo Blue and have a fire breathing beast...but they don't, and they are only fooling themsleves.

However, they will swear to it.

      Hey guys I just bought a bike last night. So the seller said the bike will turn on but then die. We didn't try it because it was really late at night and it was raining (seat was wet). But he said if you bump start it, it will turn on and ride. So what do you think the problem is? I just want to make sure it runs... I probably won't be able to bump start it till Saturday (rain)... It's a four stroke, and I know absolutely nothing about them. Thanks.

      I could use some feedback, My son is getting into off road riding so I have starting getting back into it as well.  We mostly do trail riding but did some MX track riding last year and he loved it andso did I.  I have a 2003 TTR 225, it's nice that it has an electric start but the suspension is too soft and it doesn't have enough power for my liking.  When I was riding the MX track I was having issues bottoming out on the larger jumps.  I want to change to a more off-road capable bike.   I won't ride it much and don't want to spend a lot of money, I think I prefer a 2 stroke, when I was younger, in 1990, I raced an 89 RM250 and loved it.  I am looking at a 96 RMX 250  and a 98 YZ400F, both bikes look to be in good condition and around a thousand dollars.  I like the RMX because I think kicking a 2 stroke 250 should be easier than a 4 stroke 400 and the simplicity of the 2 stroke engine.  The 400 sounds good because of the low end torque I assume it has but the cost of rebuilding the 4 stroke if needed worries me and I have heard they are hard to start. Should the RMX be decent for an occasional trip to an MX park?  Any thoughts on these two bikes?

      Brand new, still in the packaging Lexx end cap fits the stock muffler of 2006 & 2007 YZ450f and 06-13 YZ250f. Comes with a forest service approved spark arrestor and two different size tips. Don't spend hundreds of dollars on a slip on, this tip can be quiet and forest legal or loud and make power! Also a note for WR450 guys: get this tip and find a used 06/07 YZ muffler, fits directly on 09-15 WR450. $80 shipped free to the lower 48. PM, call or text 406-223-8789

      So I have a 2008 yz450f and I would like to add some LED lights to it to make it street legal. Mainly just a headlight and a tail light and turn signals if I need to (which where I live hand signals work).
      So where I need help is getting power from the stator to a battery. Wiring from a battery to anything else I got and understand and don't need help with (but recommendations are welcome). So my questions are.
      What type of power is coming from the stator. AC or DC? Will I need a regulator or rectifier? How do I wire something from the stator to charge a battery? What would that wiring look like? Would this stator work? Anything else I should know? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
