It shouldn't hurt it at all. I have run 87 in everything that I have ever owned. I wouldn't drain the tank. Just run it out and then fill it back up with 93.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Yeah, remember when you sit down on it, the weight will make it tighter.

Yeah, at the upper run of the chain.(topside). And that's with no one sitting on the 4-wheeler.
