low octane or high octane.

My dealer said 750 and 1000 requires high octane gasoline
600 u can go with regular low octane which is 87.

that's what he said, what about u guys, what type of fuel do you use for your new gsx r 600?

thanks for reading!

High octane... compression was increased to 12.5:1
Compression ratios on bikes are higher than cages. What matters is what the manual recommends. Only need to go up in octane from there if the engine knocks. There's a million threads on this, but the bottom line is higher octane isn't better in any way if you don't need it to prevent pre-ignition (knock).

Just look in the owners manual... i can tell you that my 2005 busa calls for 87 so there is a good chance your 600 wants 87 as well. If you put higher octane in the only thing it will do is empty your wallet faster. It DOES NOT give you more horse power like most people believe.

I put the highest I can find in.

I have a 1000 though.

Just a side note, if there is ethanol in the fuel at whatever station you go to, you really are not getting 87 octane when you select that grade. Its actually lower, so if you notice an ETHANOL sticker on the pump, then Id bump up to a higher grade.

Why do you put in the highest you can find? You could just use the recommended octane and give me the extra cash instead of throwing it away...

Higher octane than is needed does not create more power.

Well running better gas is proven to make your bike run a lot better your gonna tell me running race fuel in a bike that doesn’t require it will cause it to blow up or what lol na it’ll make the bike run cleaner and it’ll smell sweet coming out never have I ever heard that you can’t run anything else me and my brother have been running 91 in all of our bike for years and they last a lot longer the better gas has better oils and shit all in it to protect your engine instead of just having something there to burn I mean this is from what I was raised on tbh
