I have a 97 Honda CBR 1100 xx Super Blackbird. What fuel should she be running - leaded or unleaded?

Leaded fuel is not sold anymore. Unleaded is the only choice you have. On a sport bike I might run the higher octane fuel for a little better performance.

Why is my idle going up and down after it warms up

Hope the oil filter has the plastic removed. Then check the plugs because: could be placed wrong or models unfit for the engine. One of the plugs may have an electrode distance out of specification. Is anything around the spark plugs damaged by the wrench and could you replace the old plugs? The plug caps are often screwed into the cables so perhaps one of these screws is loose and this makes a bridge for sparks. When cables are warm the resistance is much higher so ignition may stop and start again and this also accounts for the plugs themselves and the caps. What people do is vaporize some water droplets around the spark plugs and see if you can see sparks leaking down below. I have a handy device with a small light that shows if any plug ignites. Don't pull the cap off or do anything with the spark plug cables when the engine is running. High voltage may then hit you. For vacuum leaks or other possible causes I recommend seeing this video: https://youtu.be/9B_p9StkIJQ?si=sd8SysRDQHDWLLL2

What kind of spark plug is used in a 2011 qlink adventure 250

Take the spark plug and your vehicle details to a good auto spares store. They will be able to supply you with the correct spark plug for your bike. NOTE you will need two as replacing both together is best for the engine.

2003 Honda Rebel CMX250C. I need some help putting new controls on my motorcycle please.

Question edited for clarity. Question moved to model category. You have lots of 'controls' on the bike. Do you mean the handlebar controls or some other ones? For electrical controls, undo the clamp screws, follow the wire into the headlight nacelle and unclip it, fit the new ones and connect. Put a smear of Vaseline on the male plug connector to stop oxidization. For the twistgrip throttle, when you undo the clamps, you will see the twisted wire cable and its barrel connector in the twisty part. Remove it, put a couple of drops of light machine oil like 3-in-One down into the cable. Reassemble and tighten the clamps. Check for operation of any replaced part. https://www.google.com/search?q=2003+Honda+Rebel+cmx+250C+new+controls ..
