By the way, Levy1, I got desperate and made my own "poor-man's" shorter kickstarter: I just heated it up at the big bend and gently bent the footrest 90 degrees down. Sounds weird, but it is @ 1 1/2 inches shorter AND gives my foot a larger kicking area (I initially intended to cut the downturned footrest part off, but I like it!)
Wouldn't be necessary if I had better/more flexible hip joints, but it does work!

I have tried everything from 87 to 91 octane and haven't noticed any difference in performance. Same with my buddies XR650R. We typically ride at 8,000+ feet.
You can even see there is a diffence in our octane rating designations compared to sea level. Our lowest is 85 octane, mid is typically 87 and high is 89. At sea level, lowest is 87, mid is 89 and high is 91. We get charged higher rates for the same fuel.
