I think I read about the octane debate on another forum.
It seemed that the majority didn't pay attention to the sticker on the tank or the manual and used lower octane gas without dire consequences.

Any feedback or experience here?

I think the sticker says 90 or above.
Does anybody use regular 87 and not lose sleep over it?

I use 87 everyday. The bike gets better mgp with it than 93. The only time I use 93 is when ambient temps are above 90 and I know I'll be sitting in traffic for awhile on the afternoon commute home.

So far in one year, 14000 miles and no issues. No pinging or rough running at all.

Another forum has pages of this back and forth on octane.
