Thats not always the case. Alot depends on the compression ratio and such. My rc51 runs just fine on 87 octane. 10.8 to 1 comp. There is no performance gain with 93.

Shell 93 is the only gas i'll put in my car or bike ... realize the hydrocarbon is all the same but something about the add pack makes the engines run better

I run 93 in the ZX-10R. The RC-51 ran fine when I recently tried 87. I use name brand gas such as Shell, Chevron, etc since they have a better additives package than the off brand gas, if they have an additives package at all.

even if neither one of them weer tuned for high octane i think i would still use it because i hav a theory about high and low octane gas.
