Octane? Brand?... What are you running??
So Yamaha says we should run 87 I have personally been running 89 Race Trac brand ( when I usually run down at the keys ) 89 BP (when I go to the Beach) This past weekend when i was riding down to key west i stopped at a marina and pumped 90 no ethanol (that's all they had). So what octane and brands are you guys running ??

On my ski (mods in sig) I run 87. Usually Shell gas and always 10% ethanol because that is all they sell here in MA. IMO, there is no need to run anything more than 87 on a stock or lightly modded ski. Once you push boost and rpms, then you need to step up the octane.

our climate over here in the uk is colder so we need more octane, this is good for power our pump gas is 97 premium is 99

I run regular 87 octane in my stock ski, we only have one station around here that sells 10% ethanol (Kroger).

Anything more than 87 is a waste if your not raising boost so...........run 87 and enjoy it

87 octane Shell for the Yamahas; and that's too dang expensive as it is!
The RXT's require higher octane.

I run BP super in all my toys and car. It dosen`t brake down as fast as 87 octane and I feel it burns cleaner. For .30 cents more per gallon its only a couple of dollars more to fill.

I can get the same in 93 but I was closer to this so I bought a bunch for the summer:
