I'm a XTZ750 rider looking at the GS at the mo'. Browsing through the BM brochure (the UK one at least) it says there's a factory option to get it mapped to run on 'low octane' gas. Can't remember the figures or the rating method, sorry.
Not much help if you've already got one I s'pose but it may
mean the remaps an easy one to get done by the dealer.
Interestingly what's the story if you get a 'low octane' mapped bike and then run normal gas - say 95 RON (UK)???? any ideas....?
too many to remember:
Lots of Italian stuff.
