Not sure if 110 is going to be of much benefit seeing MVs are tuned to run 95RON from the factory.Maybe Donsy can kick in and give you further advice,he races MVs in Australia.Sorry,welcome to the forum also.

There's no advantage in using race fuel if your bikes not tuned to run it, it might even run worse than with 95 or 98.

The leaded fuel will eventually clog your catalyst, if you still have one. I gutted mine but it was not a job for the amateur since the cat is a double-wall stainless canister with insulation between layers. Plus, the catalyst material is very dense and doesn't break apart easily.

Most race gas has sulfur in it so + 1 on the cat going bad
plus you 02 sensor will go bad premature.

I always use the lowest octane the vehicle is rated/tuned for.

P.S. What are you doing on the men's side of the forum randy?
