Also, a few times now I have experienced a power fluctuation when accelerating in first from a stop. It happens about 1 second after I start going, and is the only problem that I'm unhappy about on the bike. I'm thinking that it could be related to the fuel I am using, here in San Diego, 91 octane is the highest commonly available. I know that the manual recommends 98, or 95 at the lowest, but I don't know where I can get that here in San Diego. If anyone knows where I can get it I'd appreciate the information.
In europe, they use a different Octane rating for the fuel as opposed to ours. They use Research Octane, which is higher than the USA's fuel. We (The USA) uses an average of research and method, or R + M. So, from what I understand, Octane ratings of 91 to 93 of R & M are recommened for our bikes in the USA.
We have 93 in Texas, but 91 in higher altitude areas, such as West Texas around Lubbock and also in parts of Oklahoma.
If you look at the fine print listed under the octane number you will see the R + M.
Good Luck and congrats on the bike.
