Your Street will run better on 87 octane (US system) It is a lower compression engine . 91 or higher octane is Not better fuel. Different burn points. As for 10% blend fuel it makes no real difference other than Blended will produce a little less fuel mileage. The so called pure gas 91 octane will work fine but will not burn as well cold in you Street engine. Pure gas or blended Has nothing to do with Octane.
91 or 87 octane no one is better than the other except for what engine it is run in. Compression is the only thing that makes a difference in what is best for your ride.
No one sells unleaded fuel anymore long sense gone from the market.
It is time we had a good thread on Fuel Octane the two different systems used to rate it, Why it madders or don't. Then the different issues of blend fuels the differences and why it madders and don't.
The history of Blend fuels and why what was true in the 70's is not any more.

3) I drove through too high of water as it floods in spots in San Antonio
4) my battery won't hold a charge
5) all of the above
I don't know what the deal...

I just picked up a street 500 and it is really underpowered. It is also missing when I accelerate so it is back at the dealership. I am hoping that it will have a lot more power when I get it back. However, I can’t imagine ever being happy with the stock performance? I would appreciate any...
I'm thinking about moving from Dallas to San Antonio. How the **** am I supposed to move with just a motorcycle? Last time I rented a small U-Haul truck and towed my motorcycle behind in a trailer. I also had a scooter back there at the time. Now, I won't have that problem. It was...
