Default Re: I'm running E85/Ethanol(when should I expect something to go wrong)

It leaks around the base of two of the studs, but actually there was a small crack that I didn't find the first time and I think that's where most of the leaking came from. I patched it with some Devcon epoxy, and now the leak is gone for good.

The bike runs great on the ethanol! I read that you need a better spark plug to run with ethanol in a 2 stroke, but my NGK B6HS works just fine. Though actually right now I switched it with a platinum and gold Briggs and Stratton plug because it's not only a better plug but since it's clean I can better gage whether or not I'm running rich or lean.
