run whatever your manufacturer reccommends. It is best to use 93 or premium due to the additives it has also more performance.

87,

Unless you are running a turbo or a supercharger, anything above regular will not burn properly if your engines fuel system was designed for regular gas.

It makes a difference in both cars and bikes. Most bikes recommend 90. Less pinging(detonation) if you use higher octane.

Good finds on the article. Make me think twice about which gas to use now. Too much propaganda on gasoline have brain washed me.

Actually higher octanes burn at lower tempatures. In my opininon most pump gas is trash now though.
