Anybody ever try or hear any feedback regarding octane boosters sold at Auto parts stores?
Also how often should I check Valve clearances(realistically) in "hours of riding".

Be wary of octane boosters, since they will darken the plastic on your gas tank - turns white tanks to brown. Not sure how blue will turn out.
