The manual has octane requirement of ~95 octane, (manual is at home, I'm at work just in case I'm wrong) but there was a post I recall that pointed out that the octane rating in the manual was not calculated the same way octane is calculated in the US. Something like metric vs. inch.
The point is, I remember a post that suggested that the US 91 octane rating was close to the 95 octane rating in the manual.
Don't know if anyone else cares, and WR don't use that much gas, but I still don't want to pay for something I don't need.

My manual says to run unlead minimum of 95. Every station I stop at only runs up to 93, so that's what i've been running (400mi). No problems but curious as to what others run. I thought about throwing some octane booster in there put didn't want to scorch my bike just yet. Thoughts?

By the way, that's out of the 250f forum.
Also, here's #1 from that faq.
1) the manual says to use fuel that is 95 RON. in the usa we use the (RON + MON)/2 method and is what the 93 on the pump represents. pump fuel is adaquate.
