the only choice I have for non ethanol is the $6+ a quart stuff off the shelf of Lowes, etc.... a couple of places have the gallon jugs and they want $24.99 a gallon..... no thanks, I ain't payin 10x the price for non ethanol...

Put in 1 ounce Seafoam or Sta-Bil per gallon. Should help!

One year I got Some aircraft gas given to me and put in all the tractors and motorcycles, and come spring everything started up like it had been running last week. Floyd.

How much did that cost?

And my wife told you to go do what?

I didn't have a wife at that time.

 

This was the first one. A 77 KZ650, had the exhaust off cleaning.

This is an 80 KZ750LTD.

I had a KZ1300 once. Worst bike I ever had. Tall seat, high center of gravity, top heavy; if you ever dropped it on yourself, you were stuck there until someone came along. No, I didn't, but almost.

I also had a KZ 1300 and it had a king/queen seat on it and it was the most comfortable riding bike I have had. You talk about top heavy I bought a new 88 ZG 1000 Concours and the first time I got on it I just about dropped it in the dealers parking lot.

I really lucked out. The gas was fuel that was taken out of a plane that was in for service but couldn't be reused in the plane and it was a freebee. Unfortunatly it was a one time deal. I haven't checked the price of avgas but it might be worth it as a once a year deal.

I let a push mower sit over a year and thought I ruined the motor when rusty water came out of the gas tank when I put it on its side to install the blade,nothing got in the carb and had it runing but for a minute I thought it was going to be junk.
