Correct, Hi-test is not recommended. There is info about the fuel requirements in the owner's manual plus many years of experience on this forum...

Every Winter I run 90 octane RecGas ethanol free in my 1800R, and the deceleration pop goes away... (Big Shots with Hyper Charger and no programmer) If it wasn't so much more expensive I would use it exclusively... Go Figure 'Eh?

Adding a fuel manager like PCM V and adding fuel in the 0% throttle range at (I forget the exact RPM ranges, but's it's listed on there site) the first 4 rpm ranges I think.... makes the popping go away (if it's not exhaust leak related)

I have the PCIII, Pair valve, desmog, cobra pipes... all the happy stuff. Thank the Lord I don't have popping. I was wondering? Has anyone tried the Cobra Fi2000? No mapping?

Yup, I changed out my PCIII a number of years back when the fi2000 Powrpro was first introduced. Bike runs great and no decal popping.

I spend most of my money on motorcycles, women and beer. I usually just waste the rest.
