I think it is the stp octane that is making your exhaust smell. It is a different chemical besides gas going through the system. I think after you do the treatment once you should expect good gas mileage from your bike without another treatment. Isn't it made to clean the system. You don't need it every fill up do you? If you do, I don't think it's work the extra gallon of mileage it it? Wouldn't that equal like $10 per gallon for the stp octane booster, instead of the $4 per gallon we pay at the pump? Also is the stp made for bikes? Hopefully you aren't ruining something in your bike using it.

2001 honda shadow what kind if fuel should i use


Regular unleaded should work well in your motorcycle; it may actually start and run better with regular than with premium gasoline.

The big wild card, however, is the amount of ethanol in the gas you are buying. Your bike would definitely run best on "pure" gasoline that contains little or no ethanol, but that's getting harder and harder to find. Personally, I have noticed that my bikes have started harder and run worse as the ethanol content in gasoline has increased. That's one reason I actually recommend staying away from premium, which sometimes has more ethanol in it than regular (it raises octane). I prefer to keep my bikes stock, rather than messing with the carb jets to compensate for the different performance curve of ethanol-blend gas.

If it's available in your area, you might try running your bike with some Cam2 racing gasoline to see if that makes a difference. You don't need the extra octane in that fuel, and some varieties of that fuel may still contain lead (a no-no for your engine), but it doesn't contain ethanol, as far as I know. Double-check with whoever is selling this fuel in your area to make sure you're getting the unleaded stuff. If you find that your bike runs well with this fuel, you might consider blending a bit of it with pump gas on going-forward basis.

What octane level of gas should I use for a 2003 Honda Shadow ACE


Usually premium (92 octane). That's what the bikes are designed to run on. Sometimes you can get away with using 89 octane. But try your best to never use 87 octane fuel, unless you're stuck somewhere and that's all you have available to you.

My bike is cutting out its got 5700 miles on it is it the plugs maybe? is there a fuel filter on it tho its injection. some times when im trying to take of it dies. i goose it and it doesnt do anything it...


yes theres a fuel filter.
doubt its the plugs.
you dont need octane booster or even anything above 89 octane.
chances are you have a problem with the ignition coil(s).

What fuel should I put in my 2003 harley sportster


Technically, it will run on any octane gasoline you put in it but it runs best on high test. If your bike's engine rattles (spark knocks) when accellerating under a load, use higher octane fuel.

the most important thing is to check the oil gauge if it has enough oil not low and not high. also maintain its oil change procedure on it manual and its tune up, use the same gasoline octane every time. then check the brake fluid of the bike for your safety. maintain its cleanliness. and don't run without gasoline and that is a joke. thanks... drive safely...

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, I would suspect an air leak. Possibilities then are:
  • rubber lock/clamp, coupling from air box to each carb not seated properly, loose, misaligned or not connected;
  • torn, defective, misaligned air filter;
  • half of the air box is loose, not seated properly.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.

Pls be informed that due to my current rank and rating, even a Helpful would be detrimental to my status. Should this solution not address your concern, it would be appreciated if you could just not rate this at all. Cheers.

Gas


I got on the highway and for about 25 miles my engine kept (stalling/cutting out?) and then coming back on again after a few seconds. The engine light would come on the rpms would drop off for about 1 second and then the engine would come back on again. Almost like it was running out of gas but there was plenty of gas left. It happened about 10 times and when I finally got to a gas station I filled it up again on premium. On the way back home the stalling problem happened one time and then I had no problems after that. Has anyone else had this problem with regular 87 octane gasoline? By the way I ride a 695 with a Termignoni exhaust system. The engine was cold when the stalling started happening but kept occurring even when the temp was running 212. I would appreciate any comments and advice.I've never heard of anyone having issues like that from lower octane and I never have with my carbed bike. I'd rather think you got a bit of water somewhere...possibly in the regular fuel...or it was already in the tank and the fuel is just a confusing factor. Use a little dry-gas and try it again.,,,

Unknown problems with my xb9r


I am having some problems with my 2003 xb9r. It has race ecm exhaust and K&N and about 5500 miles on it. The problem is i am loosing low end power and loud backfire in airbox when down shifting exhust backfires when i let off the throttle. I just put in new spark plugs and changed all the oil and it didnt help. It seems it might be running too rich but i thought the ecm would fix it on its own. I was wondering if maybe i had to get it remapped or something... any ideas?Try to check the muffler packing.,,
