I try to keep my revs above 4000 rpm. I don't want any carbon build-up, you know... :evil: :laugh:

Mine uses about 250 ml per 1000 km of hard riding, I'm quite chuffed with that!

Ek steek maar bietjie die draak Keith, ek weet nie of dit rerig enige invloed het op carbon build-up nie. Ek geniet dit maar net om hard te ry. :laugh:

Interesting theory that

Carbon is a by-product of combustion. As far as I know leaded/unleaded fuel has no influence on this. But I was just joking - it helps to have a good reason to enjoy the bike more! ;)
