Your problem is not octane related. It sounds like you have a vacuum leak, probably a hose. Check out this web site for info on how to diagnose your problem. www.hrot.org/martino/carb/index.htm

What causes a 1986 goldwing 1200 sei to idle fast then slow


Are you using premium gas? Lower octane, especially "oxygenated" which is a fancy name for selling you 10% less gas replacing it for cheap alcohol; burns hotter and can cause this.
It's a carb-fuel problem most likely.

1. add an octane booster to the fuel or try some high octane fuel (93 or above) and see if it stops rattling. Also make sure that the engine is not being lugged (throttled hard at low engine speeds) while in driving. If the rattling goes away or decreases check the fuel quality or, it probably has some engine issues like carbon build-up in the engine, overheating, or the timing may be off, or the engine is not running on all 4 cylinders.

I have a 2001 gsxr 600 was riding it recently and noticed it knocked a bit when i let the clutch out in first it was present through out all gears but worst when under load in first what is my problem?


You are probably a victim of high Ethanol content in your fuel. See if you can find some fuel with out Ethanol. Then see if the problem clears up. Remember, higher octane just means you get more Ethanol and more pinging. My 1975 Goldwing was designed to run on 96 octane premium gasoline (no Ethanol), it runs fine on 89 octane with no Ethanol. If I put 89 octane fuel with Ethanol in my Goldwing it sounds like the heads are going to come off. Hope this helps.
