Stock GSXR-600 ethanol

i would like to know if a stock GSXR-600 fuel pump will be ok to run ethanol
the ethanol wouldnt sit in the fuel tank all the time, im more worried that if the bike is run on ethanol, will it work?

I thought ethanol was fine in any gasoline motor as long as it was a high enough octain...

e-85 doesn't give you better milage. Its actually worse as far as that goes. Its just a natural fuel source that releases more eco friendly emisions.

As far as your question I have no Idea call suzuki.

AND reduces the amount of oil needed to fill your tank. It's an attempt at less dependence on foreign oil, but it will fail miserably. As it stands now, production costs are through the roof, and without g'ment subsidies, production doesn't cash flow.

I'm betting on hydrogen FTW

If you're talking about pure ethanol, that will fluck your bike up pretty good.

These days, most gas stations sell gas that is 10% ethanol. That is fine for the bike. Any more than that, not good.

Yes and no.. wont fux with the bike itself,. but ethanol is corrosive. therefore certain hoses and fuel lines meant for petroleum products might actually oxidize in the presence of pure alkyhol, technically not an issue with burning it, reason it gives less milage is that less btu from same amount of gas, therefore to get the equal amount ethanol must run more rich that it would on gas, hence needing more to same. any gasoline engine can run ethanol, period the end. its the parts that feed fuel that are in danger of chemical exposure.
besides E100, is like freakin av gas, no detonation whatsoever so that is a benefit of ethanol, there is never any knock. so you can crank up the compression to your hearts desire, boost it sky hight with like 17 btc timing, and it wont knock and kill your rods

I thought it interesting that it costs more to produce ethanol than it does regular gas. Maybe some day it will cost less. I see that it's also jacked up the cost of products which are made with/from corn. I guess it's the cost of less dependence.
