    I’m pretty confident a new Walbro pump with the 65 psi fuel pressure regulator and 60lb injectors will be enough to run E85.

    I ordered an E85 fuel test kit. I’ll be testing the fuel at the station down the street and recording the ethanol levels over the next couple months to see how much they vary. If they vary too much, I mite mix my own Ethanol fuel , so it will be consistent for the tune.

    Just did some ball park math. I could possibly save 3/4 of a lb off the wheels by running titanium axles.

    I’m seriously considering swapping every piece of hardware on the bike for titanium also. I’ll probably do that. Probably get another 2 lbs from that. I really want to be under 400lbs with a full tank of fuel.

    That's outstanding man. This bike needs a nickname. I mean, Full Monty is good but maybe Buell Monty? I dunno, that's corny.
