Book says you can use just Reguarl. But I thinking Plus or Prem .might make bike run better.Useing Reg gas now seem to run alright.
I have read/heard it's better to add fuel stabilizer to the gas and leave the carbs sit with fuel in them to keep the o-rings and what not wet so they don't dry out/crack.. But I could be wrong?A lot of good info,think ill stay with Reg, gas and just before laying her up for the winter will run some ethanol free gas and run the carbs dry.Filling her up about once a week so far going to work and back...
That's really odd. In my town there is exactly one pump that has ethanol free in all grades. Most other towns I have been that have ethanol free it is a separate pump and it is usually only available in 87 octane. I guess the idea being that most people who want it need it for small engines that don't usually run super high compression.I would go with the guys that say ethanol free . For where I am that means premium.
Exactly. Ethanol is just fine so long as you burn it, but if it sits for a while it can cause problems and I have seen them first hand.Summer said:In my experience and talking with other folks the real issue with ethanol is when it sits for long periods. In a container the alcohol will absorb moisture and also separate from the gas(or so I have heard don't know for sure). When left in the fuel system for long periods the alcohol eats away at the rubber seals and such as they were not designed for use with alcohol.
As long as it's fresh fuel and you are riding is every couple weeks at least, I wouldn't think you would see any issues with it.
