I know with carbs there's more maintenance involved including drying her out if she's going to sit a while. I'd be interested to know what the deal is with the EFI, are similar precautions necessary?


I know that alcohol will make a good bit more power albeit using about 2x the fuel compared to gasolines. Not too expensive compared to race gas either, depending on your source and what fuel you're comparing it to it's sometimes even cheaper.

Takes alot of alcohol compared to the amount of gasoline. One positive note is the engine will run alot cooler but the negative is you will have to change the oil just about everytime you ride it 1hour or more from the contamination from the amount of alcohol thats being run through it. Another thing is if it catches on fire you cant see it.
