I started the bike today after a four year snooze… Blew out some oil smoke for a few minutes then cleared out….Checking the compression on a warm engine is only 75 psi on both cylinders using the roller starter that spins it fast…Do a leak down test tomorrow..It certainly feels like high compression when kicking it…
This is warm engine start up..Idles like a stock T120

From what I read, the SCTA or maybe just Bonneville Speed Week is very fussy about gasoline.I belive you can only use what is sold on the site..Oxygen enhanced gas may not be ok in gas class…I bought a 5 gallon can of VP C12 yesterday, $112 with tax…All that tetraethyl lead makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside…
