Another E-10 Victim

My neighbor brought his sons heavy cruiser bike in for repair. It is another classic victim of E-10 fuel problems. I made sure my air compressor was pumped up to it's full capacity before I lifted it on my 1500 lb lift. At least this carb. has easy access for cleaning. It's a nice bike for a young school kid.

Re: Another E-10 Victim

Aww, isn't it cute.

Maybe you could mount one of those behind the LT, as a spare . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Re: Another E-10 Victim

Glad to see the lift was up to the task.

What's the wood for in front of the wheel vise?

Re: Another E-10 Victim

What are the symptoms for E-10 problems? I'm assuming some sort of damage to the carb?

I've been running, almost exclusively, and certainly in storage over the winter, ethanol free gas.

You gave me a idea Ken. I think I'll deliver to my neighbor on the back on my LT. It's only a block away & my 2000 LT doesn't have a antenna so I could straddle the back rack with it.

The symptoms are the same for any vehicle that has sat for awhile and has a gummed up carb. No idle & doesn't rev up very well. I'll post some pic's when I get it apart. I've been too busy rebuilding FD's this week to look at it.
