Leaded or Unleaded?

Recommended Posts

I am going to be installing Hot Cams and the E base gasket soon. I know i will need to run a higher octane fuel. In my neighborhood there is a Shell station that sells racing fuel. They offer 110 octane leaded and 100 octane unleaded, not sure what else they have. Is that high of octane desired or necessary, and is it best to go with leaded or unleaded? Are there any problems running leaded gas with the newer bikes?

You will be fine running straight premium pump gas (91 - 93 octane). It is not until you get up to the 13's that you need to start mixing race gas.

Leaded gas will not hurt your bike at all. In fact I'll add a cup or two of leaded race gas per tank in the wifes bike and my tengai.
