Eathanol is bad but I feel it gets more blame than it should. Octane is the real enemy. Today's fuels octane levels are just too low. These bikes were designed to run on 100+ octane. Retard your timing and see if you can find a race gas pump in your area. I cut mine with 90 octane eathanol free, get about 100-105. Sure make the old girl purr, and it smells great too!!

I'm lucky to be able to easily avoid it (ethanol).

If it can't be avoided, Sta-Bil makes an additive that is supposed to help reduce the chances of it causing damage.

Stock looking in a performance pipe I see it, they are nice. The JL are beyond beautiful and perform as well.

contemplating getting a set of the SS steel low ones for the 400... for me, the price isn't so bad, since it's worse going from USD -> NZD than it is JPY -> NZD. In other words, they'll break the bank just as badly as any other set of pipes :laugh:

Those look like they're really well made!

Did you see these on that site for US$1500+?

this is a good plan.... but to be honest.... you cant always avoid it. i set up my bikes (nd 40+ and 50 year old plus cars) to run on shit gas just for this reason.  what helps more than anything is a capful of 2 stroke oil in the fuel if on the pump (keeps the algea from growing, im serious)... and run it every once in a while.  as much as i hate ethanol, ive never had an ethanol related fuel issue on any of my bikes since ive been adjusting for it.  :twocents:
