    Try octane boost. but i heard that 310's have knock sensor for that purpose. so maybe it corrected itself?

    yes the Ultra has a Knock sensor, but its not there so you can run shitty fuel..

    yes its purpose is to detect knock and then display a WARNING CODE.

    its not there so people can run low octane fuel and expect it to all be peachy sweet..

    running the lowest to highest pump gas wont make the ski run any different and for idle quality of normal ridding off boost, it just stops legs coming out of bed ( hopefully )

    "Peachy Sweet" - That's a NEW one Waz.

    Is that what you been "spiking" your Bourbon with lately?

    Tell us what's coming from the Kawasaki People for 2019 - anything "special"?

    Where's the rest of the "Team Aussie" Boys been???

    My 17í R cooked a piston from detonation. Shop said bad gas (low octane) and even sent pics. There was no codes, beeps or warnings of any kind unless you count the trail of smoke.😳
    I doubt 3 gallons will kill it but I donít take any chances anymore and use klotz octane booster. I even carry a bottle of it in the ski for the times I need fuel at a marina because they rarely have 93. Not saying itís the best but wouldnít trust cheap crap from Wally World either. Some other good ones are boostane, torco or amsoil. In a pinch I would use Lucas with fingers crossed.
    Seafoam might be good for cleaning system but it isnít going to raise the octane level.

    I'm not sure how "Seafoam" got intertwined with octane-talk ....
    Most of us (evident from the replies thus-far) already know Seafoam is a fuel system "cleaner", engine de-carbon treatment. It's also considered a top-end lube additive, fuel pump lube, and fuel stabilizer.
    What am I missing here
