I have an 09 road star 1700...the manual only says unleaded fuel. Any experiance or recommendations on what octane works best?

Look at the bottom right corner of page 4-10 of the owner's manual. It says 86 octane ((r+m)/2 method) or 91 research octane. Use the lowest octane that doesn't produce knocking.
