    hard starting after rebuild

    hey, sorry about that. the race gas was actually from the pump at a local 76 station. i forget the exact octane..something over 100. i haven't checked the valves since after the break-in. the jets are all stock (2002 yz250f). as far as the air goes, i ride sporadically...but now with summer upon us it will be hot (80's at least) and dry. thanks again
  2. Hey all, I had started out putting race gas in it after my top-end rebuild..but it doesn't like to start. I checked the valve clearance after the break-in and it was fine. I'm wondering if that race gas is gummed up in the carb. Any advice is GREATLY appreciated.

    Race gas shelf-life??

    Rineholio, thanks for the info. Yeah, i really need a metal container...I'm assuming sta-bil can be used with race fuel. Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong... MrGadget, it's at the 76 on the corner of Almaden Expwy and Foxworthy in San Jose. $4.39 a gallon yesterday.
  10. Hey all, What's the shelf-life for race gas? More specifically, 100 octane pump gas? Does it last any longer than, say, 91 pump gas? I've read some conflicting information so I'm not sure. I just filled a 5-gallon plastic jug and I'm wondering if I should add some sta-bil as it might take me a few months to use it all. (unfortunately!) Thanks for your help!

    Where to buy race gas in the Livermore area?

    Yeah, I had a meeting down in the south bay so I hit up the 76 on Almaden and Foxworthy... $4.39 a gallon for the red stuff.

    Where to buy race gas in the Livermore area?

    cool, thanks for the leads. i'll check it out. also, if anyone knows of any stations where 100 octane is available at the pump let me know. i heard a 76 station down in san jose has it but i'm not sure if there's a place around livermore. anyway, thanks again.
  14. Is there anywhere around Livermore/Pleasanton that sells 100 octane pump gas?? thanks!
