Standard for unleaded race gas is 104 octane or less (unless otherwise specified).
Remember, race gas creates wheelies without warning. This will be part of the operator error of throttle management.
Use leaded gas at your own risk!
There is a reason behind "unleaded gas only" in your engine. You could buy a lead filter, if desired, to try something new.
Here are some clarifications and cautions about octane & leaded gas:Octane

The lowest octane you can use without detonation is going to provide the best performance. Octane is a flame retardent quality (slows down burning) to prevent detonation (preignition). Too much octane and you will actually lose power. Good race fuels have other components in them to help provide power as well as the octane for detonation protection. Race fuels are typically more consistent. A high end fuel like VP MR9 (www.vpracingfuels.com), which is VP's highest power producing motorcycle fuel, is only 87 Octane but produces awsome power for something you just pour in!
