Mike Nixson, J.R. Luksik are two top rebuilders. To keep them running great, pure 100% gas (with good inline filters) and an occasional dose of Techron or Seafoam (aboht every 4th tankful) at label recommended rates can help keep things clean. But, don't use at higher concentrations than the label sez!

Sea foam sounds like a good call. Non ethanol is pretty hard to come by out here. In Virginia it was all over. Iíve only found one place here.

Took the bike on a long ride today. I rode all the way to Georgia and back. I even rode through a wicked hard thunderstorm. No problems at all. I almost canít believe it.

Techron is good maintenance too. Doesn't really matter if real gas is hard to find - carbs hate alcohol. Injectors can handle it. Try https://www.pure-gas.org/extensions/map.html

Find a supplier for avgas :)....gone are the days of riding up to the local airport honking your horn 3times, then the fuel truck would come over to the fence line when he had a few moments free...

Techron is a Chevron brand. Fuel injector cleaner? I don't remember where I read article but I saw something couple of weeks ago about E10 fuel and stochiometric ratio's. E10 needs 14:1 instead of 14.7:1. Wish I could remember where I saw it to post link. It's a big con by farming' lobby to get worse gas mileage and pay more for it. The industrial giant's growing corn to turn into alchol have conned probably billions by now, small farms cannot compete

Techron is its own brand. Here, we can get it at Advance Auto Parts or Walmart. Some top-tier gasolines have it included (Texaco is one).

I just picked some up at advanced. Probably still gonna have to pull the carbs. Idle is starting to creep on me a little. This does not please me

Could someone drop some polishing tips, or point me in the right direction?
