Did your bike leak fuel when you dropped it?? I didn't get any on me so I guess it's just the carb overflow tubes.

I think I'll drain the corn gas out of the tank and order a new petcock/carb fuel tube. I still have about 4 gal. of ethanol free fuel.

Ya....that ethanol does seems to be eating up something because I drained my carb and it had the black specks like yours...maybe an inline filter as close to the carb as can be would help

Ethanol deteriates rubber. Never leave that crap in lawn mowers chainsaws etc. Always use a good product like LUCAS for ethanol and mix with your gas. It will cake the inside of your fuel tank, lines all the way to the carb bowl with a thick plastic like substance.

I've been going way out of my way to put E-Free in my Husky. Sometimes I'm forced to put shit-gas in (i.e. Brandywine, WV), and it hurts me more and more every time I do. It'll kill FI...

My tank is chock full o corn but I replace my fuel filter often (PITA). With thousand mile weekends etc, my options are often quite limited. I'm lucky if they take credit card.

Speaking of gas, I saw it from $3.79 - $4:19 through MD, PA and NY and as high as $4.88 in Canada

This weekend went from $3.599 up to a high of $4.089 with most of it below $4.

It sucks out there Bob and my Souix friends tell me that soon it will fall into the Pacific where it belongs.

Come East my man, come East.
