Re: Ethanol in our fuel
I experienced it on a CX500 where I installed new fuel lines and then ran it on optimax (super unleaded has more ethanol than normal 95 octane), the fuel lines expanded and I had to replace them. Went back to normal 95 octane and no problems. Have also heard from other Elefant owners with Acerbis polyamide 6 fuel tanks that have experienced fuel tanks expanding when in storage off the bike and then having clearance problems when refitted. Best advice is drain the tank if its being laid up to remove any water.
