Is it safe to use 100 octane low lead in my SMR?


If it's AV Gas so would it damage any components of my bike (fuel line, tank, carb,...ect...) ??

Thanks!

Unless you bike is set up with a after market high compression set up......they run better with the lower octane high test pump gas from your local station. Higher octane race gas burns slower and will produce less power unless your bike "needs" the higher octane.

Ahh ok.

Only thing i've done motor wise is full system exhaust and re-jet. Figured higher octane would'nt hurt and for it to be a race bike thought that the motor would love it lol.

If i went with the KTM hard parts 450 race kit (piston, cam, thinner gaskets) then it probably would be bennifical right?
