That being said. Life is about variety, right? Sometimes it is just fun to have more power than ya need and not have to shift all the **** time!

I'm sure if I rode the 600 daily instead of the 300 I'd be here preaching that the 300 is so much more fun...

What is they say about the grass being greener in that jerk neighbor's yard?
Like I said I think the little 320 was more fun than my 600. To be fair though I have never tracked my 600 or 650 before. Maybe my opinion would differ if I had taken those bikes to the track.

87 is fine for the R3.

But yes you can pre-ignite on 87... because pre-ignition and detonation are two related by separate things, and you seem to be talking about detonation below <?>

Pre-ignition could happen due to carbon deposits, burnt valve ... failing crappy spark plug that has a tip that is glowing...etc. Any engine can pre-ignite on 87 if there is something to cause the ignition to happen before spark plug firing.

Detonation on the other hand.... well i can talk for days about detonation.... but you're right.. not likely on 87
Yes, I meant detonation, but you can get pre-ignition from any octane gas so what I said I stand by.

There is absolutely no benefit to running high octane fuel in these bikes as they leave the factory standard. If you put high compression pistons or shave the heads then that changes things but bone stock, nope, no benefit. Chevron thanks you though!
