Default 440ex Top Speed/race fuel

i have 12.5:1 piston, stage 2 jets, rev box, open air box, stage 2 cam, I was running vp c12 which is 108 octane, running that 50/50 with 89 pump. then i jumped it up a step, ran 70% race, 30% pump, and seem to do ok, then took it trail riding, and was acting up alittle.... Do u think if its best to run staright race fuel or mix it, because either way top end is just alittle weird, doens't seem to be there, i'm going to jump front sprocket up 16 teeth, and maybe drop the rear 1 or 2, but i wanna try to get this straighted out first.....what am i doing wrong? I mean the torque in this is awsome, I was thinking of running staright 103 octane and seeing how that worked, but i figured i try to get some info from u people out there...Thanks in advance for the help

walsh440-I was just riding today with a friend of mine who has a 440ex with the same compression as you and a similar set up for everything else and he has found that straight 110 octane works best for him.

walsh440-With 12.5:1 compression you will probably have to run pretty close to the same octane level as my friend does.Your comment about the top end not performing well may be in the jetting that you have and in fact it sounds like you may be rich so you may want to step down on youre main jet size to see if that cures the problem but dont go too far from where you are at now without checking the plug.

right now im running a CT built 13.5:1 motor on 100 octane race fuel which costs $3.75 a gallon at gas city, i should be running 110 but I cant find it anywhere, where do I get 110 octane? my advice to you would be to run at least 100 octane with the 12.5:1 piston.

i would try going down a size or two on the main unless you think you will be too lean. however, i don't think you should be.
