Not that I know of mate... Surely its just what goes in better fuel anyway.
Regarding the dealer. They need to have a MOSS diagnostics/programming system. It won't have been programmed from the factory with the low octane map. Its something I could retrofit to the bike. I've not done it, I've just seen the option in the programming lists when I've been doing other things.
All main dealers should have one if they sell or work with anything older than 2008.
