Question 2011 hammer 8 ball...best fuel

Hi all,

Based down under, and just wondering what you find with respect to the best fuel for the bike..

We have the usual, Shell, BP, Caltex etc..

I am using the Shell V power or BP Ultra..both at 95-98 octane..
Be interested in your thoughts re the best fuel you are using with respect to economy, bike performance, ie popping etc..

I have only done 1000 kilometers, so unsure as yet...
Shell station is closer to me so that has been the "easier for me"

Regards,

Derek

also in aus, have always used BP ultimate, or Caltex Vortex 98, or Mobil 98, have heard bad things about shell optimax leaving varnish build on valves over long period, also run Moreys upper cyl lube for valves, just 2 squirts per tank 1lt lasts for a long time.................

Cheers, appreciate the reply.

Bike has done 1100km, and I have used BP ultimax last couple of tanks. May be my imagination , but does not seem to pop as much on deceleration.

Will keep using and see how we go..

Derek
