What Petrol???

Post by Aussiehard » Fri Jun 24, 2011 9:29 am

Went to fill a jerrycan with some fule to put into the 1974 XS650……
The servo only had 3 octane levels of unleaded……….

This threw me there was no leaded which i wasn't expecting but they used to have a lead replacement labelled fuel.

The bike should run on unleaded but what is best for it?

Should I be putting an additive into the fuel??

What are your thoughts and what do you use on these old timers?
