Hi guys,
I have just purchased a 1980 Z650 and would like to know what people are feeding bikes of this vintage.
In my car club there is a lot of debate over brands because of refining and additives, but I would like some input here as to the experiences with the same variables.
Because the economy is so much better, does everyone go for the highest RON available locally?
Does anyone use additives for engine protection or performance?
Any advice?

Hi, i always run premium in all my bikes. Also use the flashlube stuff to protect my valves and valve seats. Usually try to put petrol from the same place in all the time but when i am on a ride i put any companys petrol in but if i at a familiar place i generally go to the same places.

I try to stick to Caltex, as when I fill from other brands, my bike doesn't seem to run as well.
