Made the switch to the "marine grade" fuel I found via http://pure-gas.org/
Rode out the tank till it was blinking then filled up with the non-ethanol 89 from Sunoco, took it down the highway; through stop and go traffic; and some "spirited" riding.
The outcome was simply amazing, no more little backfires when I engine brake; it sounded better; the engine felt smoother & more powerful.
I don't think I'll ever buy ethanol gas again unless I absolutely have to. I don't care if it did cost over $4 a gallon because I only fill up 3 gallons at a time and the tradeoff was well worth it IMHO.
I'll see if the fuel economy picks up too, I've been getting about 55mpg normally with ethanol.

I was told to stay away from ethanol gas for my bike. I have, and she runs GREAT!! I only use Regular (87 Octane) also. No need for premium on this bike.
