I use regular all the time. Anything more is a waste of money. But several have said that if a bike is going to sit for an extended amount of time that a higher octane fuel makes a difference when the bike is started back up.



If you leave your bike with regular in it for a week or two without use then the good stuff in the gas that would start it quickly evaporates off leaving you with something less than potent in the carbs. The stuff in the tank will be fine but the stuff in the carbs will be questionable.


Turn the petcock off and run the carbs dry, maybe? I don't know if this is a good idea or not, just a suggestion. So the manual does call for 87 octane regular fuel? I don't have a manual to check. I say that - maybe I do have a manual. I have only had the bike for 2 days. I need to check under the seat and behind the side covers.
