    2007 Suzuki GSXR 750


    hello, i have a 2007 GSXR 750, im just wondering which gas is ok for the bike. i know that obviously, the most expensive gas is the best for any vehicle. i am just wondering if there is much difference between gas brands? like supreme for chevron is 92 octane, and regular is 87 octane. where as husky and mohawk have their regular gas at 90 octane. Is it ok to use the husky or mohawk brand? which octane is ok? i have been using spreme (92 octane) and supreme plus from chevron. thanks.

    the highest octane is not always the best gas. bikes and cars now a days are tuned for certain octanes of fuel in terms of timing and mapping so whatver your manual says, use it. i run 87 in mine. the Mohawk and Husky 90 is an ethanol blend which is why they start at 90 rather then 87.
    That that doesn't kill us forces us to live with a busted up bike!!

    I think this place is worse than even Revscene for these kind of questions.

    I'll start the timer until the next oil change thread starts

    They often say that there is no such thing as a stupid question. I tend to disagree especially when there is a wonderful feature on here called the search function.

    Please learn to use it.
