If your valves and seats have survived on 95 unleaded the will be OK on 95 E-10 gasoline. The ethanol-fuel does not stay fresh as well as the pure gasoline used to-- if you let the bike sit unused for 3-4 months at a time, the fuel will get stale.

If you have ever relined the tank because of rust, make sure that the tank liner used is ethanol-resistant-- some tank liners from several years ago were not and the amount of ethanol in today's fuels will cause deterioration of the liner.
