I have a 2015 vmax & it says to use premium gas only with octane rating of 91 or higher. I was wondering if anyone has used 89 octane or 87 and if it has created any problems for them

Hi Rubino,

I have done some probing around and came across this thread:

The majority state that you can run 89 all day and be fine. Its when you start modding up the bike you can run into pinging or loss of power perhaps, but thats just my take on things.
