Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

I'm doing the same thing today (buying the ethanol free gas for my small engines.) nationwide (US and Can) listing of ethanol-free sources.

I am convinced that gasahol is not a way to save gas, but a way invented to steal it! Plus, it keeps the grossly inflated, gov. subsidized corn industry rolling. Either way, it doesn't pack as much go-power per gallon.

Some youtubers are having better luck with the china-girl engines by switching to Walbro carbs or by using a rubber hose to lengthen the intake.
