My uncorked XR650r runs great on the Pemex regular grade. Most stations won`t have premium. I wouldn`t worry about octane booster.

Use the red pump-the Premium- it has a 91-93 octane rating--better then most pump gas in Cali!!

just use the premium (red) all pemex gas stations have it
octane is fine man
all that can happen if the octane is a lil bit lower is that you will hear some ping's from the motor
my xr 600 runs off it all the time runs perfect
