Sv

Blew the rear gasket (big time....)
Noticeable loss of power in the last two races.
(The supersport in front of me was pulling away in the straight.)
What a difference a day makes.....

You live right by one of the biggest SV gurus in the midwest. Contact bill at Performance Cycles in Madison. He is Ed keys engine builder. One of the best in the industry. Tell him Grasshopper sent you. Zoran and twin works is in Reno, NV. Go to Performance in Madison Wisconsin.

Nick,
Question, what gas do you use?
Unleaded 93 or Leaded 110?

Hernan
It depends if that 1/4 to 1/2 second a lap time faster really matters. 9 times out of 10 I run 93 or the highest grade they have at the gas station. I never run that leaded 110. If I choose to run a racing fuel it would more than likely be U4 but you have to remember the machine has to be tuned for it if you want to run a high end race fuel. Most are highly oxygenated. You need to discuss these things with your race bike "Tuner". Not over the internet.
