Your in sunny CA so probably not an issue for you. As long as you ride often. It's more of an issue for us that may not be riding for a month or two because of weather. From what I understand is Ethanol will separate from gas over time and ethanol will attract water.
I've ran 10%ethanol most of the time I've had my bike and haven't had any issues. I only try and get non ethanol when I may not be riding for a few weeks.

I forgot which ones they are but there are additives that will reblend the ethanol or ethanol + moisture back into the gasoline and allow it to combust better.


I am coming from an older Triumph Tiger background.
