MMO has paraffin wax in it so I would not use it to lubricate the top end of the engine on a steady basis. A little MMO (1/2 ounce) now and then may be more helpful in lubricating the fuel pump.
A MSDS doesn't have to contain the entire formula it only has to list the main ingredients and their hazardous ratings. Even water has a MSDS - 0,0,0. Your local Harley Dealer has the Screaming Eagle octane boost and it claims to raise the octane by 3 full points. So even HD
will sell you some snake oil.
Snake oil your bike will not run better or faster on it.
higher Octane fuel burns slower not faster or better.
104 would work in a very high compression engine. Your HD
even with mods is designed to run on 91-93.
That is the point! When you are out in the desert and you can only get a 85 or 87 octane fuel the octane boost may help. We are not trying to go faster or get the bike to run better we are trying to get it to run normal when the only fuel that may be available is 6 to 9 points lower in octane then what should be in the fuel system.
