We wanted to make the general public aware that we have found a lot of online sellers using our name illegally to market other pit bikes and dirt bikes.
The latest is a company called Sunny Sports. This company also sells under the website scooterdepot.us and buyscooter.com . We have found that if you do a search with terms like “orion pit bike sales” or “orion pit bikes Texas” this company is doing some targeting to try and lure unsuspecting customers in with our name. This company clearly doesn’t offer our product but in their advertising they use our name.
Let us be very clear…..we do not dealer sell our products to any online sellers. The only place to buy guinuine Orion Pit Bike Sales products is directly from us. We don’t want our product pushed thru these mega dealers that sell anything with wheels. Most of these online sites that are like this would never be able to provide the specialty support necessary. Plus they are only interested in quantity not quality.
We get calls all the time asking us about fuel requirements. The general question is, “What octane fuel should I use in my pit bike?”
The answer to that can be clear but also confusing. We recommend running at least 91 octane but there are limitations to how high you should go on the octane rating. Most premium unleaded gas is around 91-93 octane. This is the best gas to run in your pit bike. Any lower and you can get serious carbon buildup on the valves and spark plug. This can lead to poor performance and even non starting pit bikes. Any higher octane and you run the risk of over heating and doing irreversible damage to your cylinder, pistons and valve train.
If you have been around motocross or racing all together you are probably familiar with race gas. Sometimes known as VP race gas. Though it is tempting because of the increased horsepower, we do not recommend putting this in your pit bike. Because the octane is usually around 105 – 110 this can damage your 4 stroke pit bike motor. This also goes for any fuel additives that increase the gas octane. Straight premium pump gas will make your pit bike run strong, clean and stay within the limitations of the motor.
