Toadz450 - I agree with you for the most part. I didn't mean to sound like and @ss. I agree with you that it won't make a HUGE difference in engine life and running leaded is not an excuse to skimp on maintenance. I just disagree that it is a waste in a stock motor, I think it helps a little. There are a couple reasons I still run race gas. 1) My CRF has a 13.5:1 compression ratio. And 2) This past December I put the WR crank in my YFZ. When we tore the motor down, my buddy that helped me do it and everyone who saw my engine went on and on about how good all the parts looked to have been running MX for 2 years. I was amazed at how well everything looked, it all looked brand new. Because if this, I am running (and will continue to run) the same fuel, oil, coolant, etc., etc. that I ran in my YFZ. If my CRF is as reliable and runs as well as my YFZ did, I'll gladly pay a little more for fuel and oil. Just my opinion.
