    Race / Pump Gas??

    Gudday all....First post!!!
    http://www.pwctoday.com/images/smilies/joke.gif
    I just got a 2005 sxr with R&D cast head, Factory Dry Pipe etc..etc...I read somewhere that you must not use pump gas with an aftermarket head. This true? I'm only using it for rec riding....

    Thanks!

    1st, Welcome, think you'll like it here, 2nd I would say a compression test would give you a better idea on which fuel to run, unless that info came w/ski, head(?), T.

    No info with the ski, no.

    How do I tell from the compression test?

    OK, the test will give you amount of compression in each cyl. in lbs., unless you know someone who has the same set-up as you(or you could do a search in this forum) an example would be: 170-180lbs. 93-100octane.
