I just bought a leftover 09 for my GF, and the dealer forgot to send us home with an owner's manual (he said it was under the seat). A couple questions if you all don't mind?

OM call for 87 octane fuel, or something higher?

do these bikes come with a tool kit?

speaking of tool kits, does the key actually lock / unlock the tool box on the left side (seems like the key doesn't even slide in all the way and I've noticed a screwdriver works just as well to turn the "lock"). On the other hand, my ignition key doesn't seem to slide all the way into the helmut lock, but a screwdriver doesn't seem to "unlock" it but the ignition key does.

and to check oil level, I'm assuming the bike should be warmed up, held upright and the dipstick placed in the filler hole, but NOT screwed in?

I should have the manual by next week, but we're up in NC on vaca now and plan to be riding every day. Appreciate any info until then!
