Moriwaki pistons, Race gas?
new poster here, hope you don't hold it aginast me (I spend most of my time on the off road sites)
I've got 35K on my 99 VTR and the infamous CCT let go. (I didn't know it was infamous until I had to trailer the bike home last week!)
I'm tearing it all down and thinking about finally putting my Moriwkai pistons in. The guy I bought it from was considering making the VTR his track bike, but got sidetracked by the 10 other bikes he had in his garage. Anyhow, here I am 25K later and since I'm doing a full teardown I thought I may as well do it.
At 11.4 compression ratio and stage 1 HRC cams, am I going to have to run race gas in this thing??
I can't find a damn thing on the net about these. Big Valley Honda (the original piston dealer) lost the guy that used to know about this stuff.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
