high octane damage older tials bike?

Recommended Posts

I have a 1986 Honda Reflex Trials bike. There is a constant debate about fuel grades around here. My manual says nothing about what type of fuel to use. Will a HIGH octane fuel help or hurt my bike. I ride a altitude, by the way - usually 7000' to 12,000' Will LOW octane help or hurt my bike?? Thanks for any insights!

if you are running higher compression in that engine, then you will need premium fuel. Chances are that it doesn't run that much so just try mid grade pump fuel and see how it goes. I would bet though that you could get away with running regular. it's just a trial and error thing, don't waste your money on expensive gas if you don't need it
