Lower octane fuel is fine. These KLR's have great (too great) cooling systems.
Pinging is something I haven't even read about on the site, let alone ever experienced.
The manual also recommends 10w-40 oil. Most of us go one weight heavier. (15w-40)
The main bearings on a thumper take a bit of a beating.
Enjoy your motorcycle to it funnest, and welcome to the site.
