Lead or dead
 
Hi guys,
Quick question I assume 🤣 do you do or do you dont add lead or an additive to a 1986 honda rebel cmx 450 us import? No info on hanes manual or the net.
Good luck with this.
Cheers :bikerie:

Japan was the first country to start switching to unleaded in 1972, so probably not.

All Japanese engines have had to run on unleaded since 1976 but have been built for unleaded long before.

One of my customers has a 1967 F**D Anglia and he puts a tot of 2 stroke oil in the petrol.
It gives a nice little puff of blue smoke when you give it some welly :lbhbh:
