Just looking to insure against detonation and damage.
My question is: Does anyone know of any issues if I were to use off the shelf octane booster like 104 + with 92 pump gas?
I heard that it may leave deposites in the combustion chamber and cause detonation but I don't know how real a concern this actually is.

The boosters dont actually do much and are a waste if you ask me. 7 points added to 93 octane will leave you with 93.7 octane!! My bike seems to be ok with 92 octane, I may try to mix 1 gallon of 110 with 5 of 92 and see if it makes a difference.

You wont have any problems with 92 octane fuel from the pump.
No problems here

If you want to try race fuel that'll give you more bang. Something that is oxygenated. Usually 2 - 3 % / wt. in the 100 octane range. It'll be 8 - 10 dollars per gal. if you can find it.
The added O2 is released during combustion and acts like you got that much more O2 thru the carb.
I used to use VP in old 2-stroke racing days.
