What fuel are you using?

I allways fill it with 98 octane .We also have 95 octane, but I think the 98 will give a better power outcome with lower fuel consumption. The difference in price doesn'nt bother me for that. I don't use any additives

I don't have any troubles with the 'snatchy' throttle

I'm from Belgium

95 for me me too here in the Czech Republic, I don't really think it matters these days plus 95 was good enough for my GSXR.

If I had something like the new Kawasaki H2 I might consider 98 just to keep that supercharger whirring away.

Just saying ; - )

Cool

Haven't tried the 98 yet but I've always given my other bikes a drop of the good stuff for a treat every now and again. Normally I just use the 95 for day to day use. I'll be interested to see what the difference is with the GSX

Always use 98 octane as I did with my fireblade.

98. I'll use 95 where the servo doesn't have 98.

I use 98, unless I really need fuel and the servo doesn't have it.

I know some countries have different ratings, i can't remember exactly but im sure there are three. Ron mon and some other one. I think 95 in Australia is similar to 89 in America.

I also consistently use bp 98

If in doubt, throttle out.
