When I worked at a Ford Dealership, they had a new excursion that was bought.  So, we were prepping it, go to the gas station, and it had the smaller opening.  So, we couldnt fill it up, because all of the deisel pumps had the big nossels.

I personally couldn't tell by the smell (but now I can), it was a guy I was riding with who noticed the smell of diesel from the exhaust as soon as he pulled in behind me.

As for the pumps 95% of the time I go to mobil, where there are three choices 87-green handle, 89-blue handle and 93-red handle.  If they carry diesel its usually a completely seperate pump and its yellow.  Oh well, you live and learn I guess, at least things seem to be well now.
At 185 miles per hour, fear isn't being ignored, it just hasn't caught up yet.

Congrats on your mid-ride top-end lube.  I have a friend that we call Diesel Dave, because he did that to his Ducati Monster one day.

If it was diesel, you should have noticed the aroma of the fumes coming out of the tank as you filled it up. And jeff is right about the pump itself being very dirty.
I work at a gas station as a weekend job, and one of our workers put about 9 litres of gas in a diesel car yesterday...we had to get a shop to drop the tank and take it out, but I figured he could have just diluted it and burned it out. That's also what the mechanic said, but customer knows best (I guess). lol
The only difference between me and you is, I make this look gooood...

Depends on how large the tank was...  If it was a small (10-15gal) tank, I'd have drained it too.  Anything more than about 20% gas dilution to diesel fuel, and you're looking for an explosion...

Contact the local dealership to make sure you don't need to change anything.

87 on CBR600RR... CBR1000RR recommand 92 but you can put lower octane..

well darn...the manual says "86 or higher."  ive always ran 92 in all my bikes, one lasted over 55,000 and i got rid of the others sooner.  Any possible down sides to using a higher octane?
