I use 87 oct, or what ever is cheapest. Unless you are getting some pinging or knocking you dont need anything more. Unless you have major motor work done your just burning $'s up for nothing.

well, the highest I can find in my area is 94, it's what I used to use for my car, but since I got the bike the car started getting 87 :( I think it's upset with me now. lol

104 octane sunoco race gas. My RR has a pretty high compression and considering I just got done replacing a leaking head gasket, I figured a little extra insurance against pinging was in order. I only do 1/4 mile currently so 1 gal of gas lasts me like a month. The fuel has a higher alcohol content so it keeps the engine cleaner, smells great, slightly oxygenated and lead free. It will make decent power once I richen up the PC3 to suit it. It is The 636 should be fine w/ premium (92) pump gas though.
