87 Octane not enough compression to require higher octane.
Sugar Bear can't tell you with authority what you need, or required. He will say this, he has run 87 to 93 octane and could tell not a shread of difference on his 1100, whatever that may be worth. Don't mean nothin, just something to ponderRide Safe.Hello. I bought a 2007 VStar 650 Classic for my first bike. It did not come with the owner's manual but one has been ordered. In the meantime, could you nice folks/members here in SOCAL tell me what gas octane rating is recommended for this bike? 87? 89? 91? Thank you all.
