Re: Honda Fireblade 1000RR 2007 model
Hi and welcome.
Most of the 998cc models will run up to about 98 degrees before fans come on. There's no drama with these bikes; they're robust and will cool down quickly once on the move.
I use the premium 98 octane 'ethanol free' fuels. Sure it's a bit more expensive and perhaps offers no discernible performance improvement, BUT, because of its higher 'detergent' level helps the bike run cleaner. I found after switching on my Blades (see signature) that I would get and extra 20 - 30 miles (32 - 48 klms) before fuel light came on. More importantly though, the ethanol-free does not promote perishing of tank and fuel system rubbers.
