a fool & his money are easily parted...
octane booster stops detonation. you only get detonation when the ignition timing is wrong, when you have a hot spot in the combustion chamber, when the compression is so high that the mixture explodes instead of a controlled burn.
a standard engine therefore doesn't need it. if you get it you can whack the compression up to 18 to 1. some riders are reporting good results with nitro, that's nitroglycerein.
apparently you get a bigger kick per buck spent.
