Why would you go to U4 to 110 on a stock bike?????
Not a good idea really.
One could mix this fuel.
Likely wasted $$$

There is no "free" 9not that high octane fuel is free)HP in race fuel, or high octance fuel, with the exception of oxgenated fuel. Running race fuel is a TOTAL waste of money, and you will LOSE power. Try the search button, this has been covered here before.

If you use pump gas on a regular basis and tune the bike for U4, the bike won't run like its supposed to on pump gas. If you have a dynojet hub with map switch you could have 2 tunes, 1 for the U4 and 1 for pump.

VP 110 is listed on their website as being leaded. Not sure if you can run leaded fuels in these bikes.

I would think your better off running MR9 or something the u4 is good but I get jackola top end using it. But the lowend grunt I get pulling out of corners and crisp throttle makes it worth it.

I'd like to say me too. On my old bike with the big cams I gained 7hp on U4. Can't afford that stuff anymore. All the cash goes to tires now. My '06 10 has stock internals. On Mondays trackday I'll be mixing Sunoco with 87 octane. The throttle feels more crispy and more consistant at the bottom end. Our pump gas in Oregon is shit.

A full tank of Sunoco yeilds 3hp on my bike. I'm not running it straight much though. Still the consistant throttle response is worth it for me during the trackdays. Haven't even tried any other fuels at this point, but would like to. But more than anything I miss the smell of the old U4. Pure skunk, if ya know what I mean! :weed:
