Re: Top Speed, 80cc Chinese motor? what is the record?
I agree, if your not comfortable boosting the octane or don't have the safety gear and a safe place to do it its best not to. And like you said, the performance gain isn't that much. Its mainly only needed for racing where quarter mile or lap times are recorded down to a thousandth of a second and any and every little bit counts, no reason at all to do this on a daily rider unless the compression is super high, but again, there's no need to run the compression that high on a daily rider... compression can also rob power in some situations on 2 stroke engines. Its good for low end torque, but not so important for high rpm top end power...
