Those of us at altitude use 85 MON. FJR loves it and so does the pocketbook.

Octane

Yamaha specifies 87 octane. Using a higher octane is generally of no value. Using a particular octane may have value for special circumstances, but by and large, the engine compression ratio and other factors were designed for the specified octane. My friend is a master mechanic and has explained this to me in detail. If I can translate that in to human terms I'll post it here.

I initially marched to the beat of this drum myself, but I began noticing a lot of metallic clatter when I'd accelerate hard from low RPM. Started using premium and the noise ceased. FWIW, I noticed the same exact thing on an 1800 Gold Wing. Not sure what fuel grade Honda recommends.
