Question on fuel stabilizer

Hi guys just wondering if fuel sta-bil is in any way harmfull during break in period of the KLR. I wanna say i'll be using the "low dose" for everyday use and not the storage dose. Should I or should I not add it?

I don't LIKE using additives, but, if your're pumping ethanol blends I'd absolutely use it.

Gray-haired riders donít get that way from pure luck.

Thanks, all gas down here says it contains 10% ethanol; then I hear premium does not; who knows! ...anyways my question is if during the break-in period.

Seafoam is the bomb.

My understanding is it depends on the refinery. However, most use ethanol to raise the octane level specifically for premium.
