I think all internal-combustion engines run at about the same temps (only each has its own cooling issues) ...

I hear ya'. our "regular" is 87?-89? octane, and "premium" is ~95? (octane ratings may be calculated differently) :con: but either of the higher is more expensive (I reckon)
100 octane is only available here in aviation fuel (avgas, and even more expensive)

I save/use my "old" gas by draining/collecting it and mix it 50/50 with fresh for the lawnmower or car. :naughty:

SKF are not replying , but SNR which I bought have the following information online:

https://www.ntn-snr.com/sites/default/files/2019-07/doc.i_snrdgbb_arg1.gba-29-07-19.pdf

-40 Degrees C to 120 Degrees C , which should be OK. I bought the rubber sealed version, but will remove both seals.
Will ride my bike a bit before that and when seasons finishes will probably deal with that upgrade.
Also will order the long drilled bolt through which the oil passes , because I understand there is an upgraded design with bigger hole.
Maybe will order the upgraded in design rocker arm shafts in the heads.
