I think its ok tbh , but when storing the bike for a while
I would make sure its run dry , nothing in the carb or tank

Some say use Esso E5 if you don’t use the bike very often as the Esso is claimed to have the least or zero ethanol content!?

My favourite is Shell V-Power as it seems to work best in my particular XB and hang the expense. I now use nothing else. I also use a bit of fuel stabiliser if I think the Buell will be stood unused for a long period.
