You can run 87. If you hear any pinging you know to go up on the octane. But many say 87 makes more power.
If getting a custom tune or using a generic map for a PC just make sure 93 is not called for. My tune is on 93.

I have a brocks sidewinder and kn filter, the map for the pc3 is for the pipe and filter, It's set up for the 1/8th mile, 12 over machintosh arm, -1/+6, lowered and straped, mps air shifter, run a consistent 6.05. on 93 octane, dont know if 87 would give it some more power, cant hurt to try. thank

manual calls for 91+ octane but if you dont expereince detonation with 87 your bike will make more power because it will burn faster.

Does someone have some dyno data proving this?
