Exercise some caution, as some of the oxygenated fuels have serious corrosive properties, etc. and must be drained after you are done running - they don't play nicely with fittings, connectors and such. Find the local VP guru and follow his/her advice.

I think the bikes are designed to run on pump premium so thats what I use.

The stuff really stinks and is SUPER toxic. I found a data sheet on the additives in the fuel and was surprised at how nasty it is. The warning on it said "WILL cause insanity and blindness" additionally it is very expensive.
Both of the bikes run fine on pump fuel so I switched back.

Unless you've boosted compression any extra octane over 93 doesn't really help.
And Yes, the oxygenated fuels are nasty. You wouldn't expect something to boost performance AND be eco-friendly would you? Definately drain your tank and float bowl and keep the unused fuel sealed nice and tight.
