Ok my brother said I should only put 93 in my 99 R6.. I was looking in the manual yesterday and it says the recommended fuel is Regular Unleaded..
now do they mean 87 regular unleaded.. or 93 regular unleaded lol..

So i guess the question is.. what do you use in your bike?

From what I've read - the 1st gen's (99-02) only require 87 octane, but the 2g's ('03+) require 91/93 octane.


This was a good artice I found on fuel.

Who are you to tell the factory that designed and built your bike, and recommends 87 that 91/93 runs better. I think they might know what works best. :rolleyes:
I agree with you on the fuel issue and I agree with pretty much everything the manual says. But I totally disagree with what the manual says about breaking the engine in easily...
