I've ran 87 for a long time, people piss and moan about gas prices and profits so why give them more. I like my money I'll not give it away to millionaires.

I have been running 87 octane in my 2008 Kingpin with no trouble and no pinging, even after installing Lloyd's timing wheel set at 3 degrees advance. Spark plugs will have less carbon fouling with the lower octane fuel, too.

I know you said older model but my ole lady ran some 87 octane in her 2011 model Vegas when we went to Colorado last year and got less gas milage and pinging but it runs fine on 89 and my crossroad it had no effect on except a little less gas milage
