    I put Techron in my bike every few tank fulls during the first three years I had the bike. I thought maybe that, and the fact I ran almost exclusively Shell gas, had helped me avoid fuel strip...

    I like it.

    I didn't see the weight posted. Lighter? Heavier?

    I was hoping for more than a gain of 15HP though.
