What Octane Fuel Should I run in my Ninja H2 SX?
The H2 SX has a much higher compression ratio (11.2:1) than the H2 (8.3:1) – because of this, the bike must run higher octane fuel to prevent detonation.
We run the max octane from the pump that we can find, typically 93 Octane ((R+M)/2 Measurement Method) and no ethanol, if possible.
Lower octane fuels can be used for general riding, but sustained long-term/high rpm use is not suggested.
The use of a Top Tier Detergent Gasoline is highly recommended.
