    as the title says I need help between vp-c12 and vp-110 octane. I have been running c12 since I got the kart  but the  110 octane is much better as far as price . Are there downsides or cautions of running vp-110 over go-c12?

     

    Engine = stock Honda CR125

     

    thanks for your time !

    On a stock Honda?  You may be losing power running that over something like the VP 98 – unless the combustion chamber is setup to run that kinda fuel, it can be detrimental to performance.

    Is there a way to inspect the engine to determine if it is intact a stock Honda or modded?

    Part numbers on the piston.  Have a look at the cylinder to see if its been ported.  Check the squish.  I’m not really familiar with the Hondas, but that’s generally how i’d check any 2-stroke to see if it’s been worked over.
