Obviously they are targeting the late superbike owners. It describes an oriental, fruity, feminine scent suitable for daytime wear! Definitely not for we macho bevel owners! We need a bacony, sizzling fat, smokey, oppressive cloud surrounding us.

HAH! I've got a name for it too, Eau de Valve Guide. The scent that catches up to you when you stop. Everyone swoons!

A drip of ricinus-oil in the gastank and everyone around You OR runs away (the woussies) OR get's reminded of how REAL bikes smelled in the 70's :-D :-D

I've been running some Blendzall octane booster in my fuel,it has castor in it and it smells like racing! Seems to make my Buell run a bit better too but could just be the aroma.

I knew there was another word for ricinius-oil : Castoroil.
Learned another english word (or re-learned ;-)

How much are you adding per litre/gallon? I'm not really interested in a performance boost but I remember standing at a bust stop waiting to catch a bus to school in the early 70's and this guy would ride past at the same time every day on a '72 750 GT with coarse gold metalflake fibreglass bodywork and the smell was just fantastic. I think it was Castrol or Shell A racing fuel with castor oil - the best air-freshener ever emanating from the best sounding exhaust pipes ever!

With the Blendzall octane booster I've been using about 1oz. per gallon which is less than recommended on the bottle but enough to give that sweet hint of racing. Using any of the 2 stroke castors I would probably start with around a 60:1 mix and see how it smells [tuning by nose?] you could possibly run into fouled plugs if it is mixed too rich.
