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.

So, I noticed that there was coolant leaking from my bike. After taking off the peg assembly, I noticed there was coolant leaking from what appears to be the drain plug here:
I was going to try and take it out to inspect the washer and tighten the bolt to see if maybe it just happened to get...
I don't know what happened. I either-
1) put this gas additive from HEB that's causing trouble
2) the rain recently is affecting my bike
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...
