I always ran premium pump gas in my '98 and I was wondering if anyone was running leaded race fuel or aviation fuel and if you notice any difference.

THE OCTANE BOOSTER WILL MELT THE PLASTIC FILTERS INTO A SCREEN SO NO FUEL CAN GET THROUGH. your bike will start ok & then it won't rev.
if your compression is too high the engine won't rev out. my special ducati roadbike used to be 14 to 1 but wouldn't rev beyond 8,500 & it was meant to go to 11,000.
race fuel doesn't give you a power boost it's the resulting higher comp you run that does. higher comp means a boost in the midrange more than top.
but boy will it f*** with your bottom end. it will show up any cock ups like o dear i forgot to change the oil. the little man with his hammer comes a knocking!!!
