Question on gas/octane rating
My manual calls for an octane rating of 87.
Does it do it any good to put in gas of higher ratings?
I know what the ratings mean but I don't know their significance on this motorcycle. What do you guys think? I've been putting in 89 and 91 lately because my friend suggested but like usual I have questions.
