    My 12 is a daily commuter. I ride about 60-90 miles round trip in freeway and in-town city street traffic. Cali roads are pretty fast pace, 80mph is just keeping up with the flow of traffic. I was whipping through some gaps to hit open road and was blown away with how much pull the bike has in 5th. 105 seemed to just happen and I realized I it was time to relax a bit.
    Thanks for exposing us to this stuff Gloomshadow.
    I'm using 30ml per 2.5 gallon fill up at the moment. I like the results so far...

    I'm ready!



    Weather sucks in Southern Hemisphere. Now that it is better, I'm recovering from some flu...
    Hopefully I'll be able to ride a bit next week.

    Alright before everyone goes dumping stuff in their tank, and please correct me if I am wrong, I am not too familiar with the xb valvetrain and I did not read all 6 pages of this thread. So if I am blabbering on along the ditz train please excuse.

    You will experience certain benefits through having a lubricant in the fuel. This being the case because under normal circumstances the only lubricant touching the valves is the fuel, which normally has no lubricant additive. 2 smoke mix being an exception. A mix provides additional lubrication through intermittent use potentially prolonging valve life and could possibly provide additional performance at high engine speeds. On the downside you will experience additional carbon and residue buildup. Potentially leading to premature valvetrain failure if used consistently.

    My $.02 anyways.

    Debunk me please because I truly wish to believe in some magical concoction that will make my bike more awesome. Not trying to be a dick. I'm serious lol

    not magical and has been used in hot rodding at these ratios for decades with oil data to back it up.. read the six pages. the ratio is 600 to 1 or 300 to 1...
