    type of fuel?

    Anyone know if running ethenol in the c50 is good for it..Living in a agriculture state they are pushing for ethenol in everything. I know not to use it in my small engines ie: mower, chippers,weedwacker ect. Obviously I wont use 85% ethenol. stopped at a station, was on empty, and everything was ethenol blended.

    thank
    scott

    according to the handbook for the m50 you can use gasoline mixed with up to 10% ethanol. check your manual it should have something to say about this.

    the manual on my 05 C50 says up to 10% is ok. the gas I buy here has 10% in it according to the label on the pump.

    Yup, 10% 'pump mix' is fine. Anything more than that will damage your bike.

    If you REALLY want, you can convert it to run on 85% ethanol, but it is a LOT of work.
