Are you having good results using 93 octane premium pump gas? All the gas stations around me have 10% ethanol in the gas. Does it matter?

92 octane is what we got around here, and some days it works great, but other days i need to run 87, it burns hotter, just beware that running 87 can have detonation problems if you have your bike running lean.

Sometimes I ask myself when the myths will end.  

But then,  I sit back, and think to myself, "What fun would DRN be without Rich shredding those myth sayers apart!!!"

VP 110, just because I can count on the fuel being consistent. I would like to try Ultimate 4, but I don't really relish the idea of jetting this thing because getting to the carb is Oh So Much Fun.

I saw 100 octane @ a Unocal in Laguna Niguel/Aliso Viego (wasnt really paying attention where exactly) just off the I-5. I dunno how many of these stations offer it and it was quite pricy ($4.99/gal I think).
