I don't recall the names of all of it, but suffice to say that there are at least two different methods of determining octane, and the one they use in the manual that says 95 is comparable to the 91 we have at our pumps.
I think it's RON in the manual and ours at the pump is like R + M/2 or something...
Do the search. The info is there.
Bottom line, pump premium gas will be fine until you up your compression.
I found this explanation...
Your bike requires a minimum research octane number (RON) of
95 octane. The fuel you buy at the gas station uses the R+M/2 octane method. 91 octane pump gas has a RON value of
96.8 which exceeds the octane requirements of your bike.
