can i still ride with the stablizer incorporated into the fuel system? is it something you might wanna use more often than just winterizing? I wouldnt imagine it would hurt anything to ride with it in, but just doublechecking.

Putting stablizer in keeps the additives in your gas from sinking to the bottom and helps keep water out. Souldn't be harmful runnig it in the srping time as well. All its going to do is keep the additives moving all around and not sink. :)

You should really drain out the gas in the spring before riding it, just to be on the safe side. Especially if you winterize like many of us do, and you're bike ends up sitting for 90+ days. The Stabilizer definately helps, and it's not necessarily required to drain out the gas, but I do it. Better to be safe than sorry. :)

what about "dry gas" remember that stuff our parents used to always tell us about to put in the fuel tank, especially in the winter to keep condensation from building up in the tank, etc. ? is that similar to this stuff ?

It kind of works in the same way but not all. It does the same as to help with the water in the gas/tank but it doesn't keep the additives form sinking.

Screw all that!! I've been using Stabil in all my bikes, every year with no problems. I even use it in my gas powered machines at work. The ones that I don't use all year around!!

In the spring, get your bike out, do whatever you do in the de-winterizing and then just ride your bike like normal. Ignore the stabil in it!

Dry gas, is essentially methenol...it attracks/attaches to water in gas and allows you to burn it off. That's it! No rocket science!!
