Right now Im running 89 but does anyone know if it would be best to run 91 in the Triumph 1215 engine or am I better off sticking with 89?

Thank you

If it calls for 87 , that's fine. I usually try to use brand name gas with detergents. It's cheaper in the long run.

87 or better means, "regular automotive grade fuel". IOW's 87,89, 91-94 octane is ok. the best way to figure out which fuel is best for your bike is to do a octane mpg compar-o. that what i did. (87 vs 93) i found that i get a average of 3 more mpg using regular automotive grade fuel with the highest AKI rating. IOW's, which ever octane gives you the best average mpg, is the best fuel for your bike. no b.s..
