That's probably bad gas. I only run 92 or + in my car and bike(s). And I only put in Shell, Sunoco, Mobil. Never had problems. Even left Mobil in for three months in the Harley this winter with no ill effects.

I hope you didn't do Speedway or Clark or something. I've even witnessed BP gas stop a bike in its tracks. I stop at Speedway for pop, not for gas.
