Correct, a higher octane in and of itself does not add power if the motor cannot take advantage of it.

... it didn't before with no/low fluid? Hmmm...

If the parts were re-assembled in the proper order and 12 oz (or SM spec) of Type E, maybe weak springs?

Quote from: motorhogman on Today at 12:40:02 PMI found the part about "octane boosters" informative. I always thought they would increase power to some level. Apparently they just reduce the chance of a spark knock. 

True, the power gain comes from being able to add more timing and or compression without detonation.

Quote from: Ohio HD on Today at 12:35:52 PMThat's a very interesting article. Might be a little costly for daily use. But for racing, it's not that expensive at all.

I now use plastic welding.
I did buy some ABS plastic "rods" for "filler".
Also made my own ABS "slurry" by just dissolving the ABS in acetone.
For the "welder" I use the Milwaukee M12 cordless solder iron. It is only so-so for soldering but, with the square tip, works quite well as a plastic "welder".
I just finished up a fairing on a Kawasaki 250 Ninja for a friend of mine and it turned out very well.
I also did the "welding" on my son's 2008 inner FLTR fairing and headlight bezel.
There is a learning curve but I highly recommend the "welding" over any type of glue, and I've tried them all.

I would use JB Weld. Figure out a way to hold everything in place until epoxy sets. That's what I used to fix stripped threads on my fairing. Quick set epoxy would probably also work but I always have JB in the garage
