Fuel Issues: All internal carburetor parts offered for sale by Randakk’s Cycle Shakk are approved for use with gasoline. The materials are long-established to be impervious to gasoline by the chemical firms which provide the materials. They will also tolerate a reasonable amount of ethanol in the “gasohol” fuel which is commonly marketed as gasoline in many markets in the US (with or without notice at the pump). E10 (10% ethanol) is an acceptable fuel as well as “seasonal” fuel (15% ethanol) which is marketed for summer use in some markets. E20 (20% ethanol) may soon be the new standard in many markets. This is the maximum recommended amount of ethanol in fuel marketed as “gasoline” for use in carbureted engines.
Avoid ethanol altogether if you can, as ethanol attracts moisture which can lead to internal corrosion of metals inside the carbs. Strictly speaking, the use of ethanol requires more maintenance and careful attention to fuel “freshness”.
Higher concentrations of ethanol are known to cause disintegration of rubber components. E85 (85% ethanol) must absolutely be avoided and not used under any circumstances…even emergencies. It will ruin the rubber fuel system components in any vehicle that is not certified as a Flex Fuel vehicle. This includes fuel hoses, fuel pumps, fuel cap gaskets, air cut-off valves, accelerator pump diaphragms, etc.
Continuous use of in-tank fuel cleaners or using in higher concentrations than recommended is harmful and can lead to premature destruction of internal carb rubber parts. Float bowl gaskets in particular are prone to odd distortions in the face of fuel additive abuse. The only cleaner I recommend is the Yamaha product for “on bike” dirty carb rehab efforts…it’s effective and harder to misuse. Put the Yamaha product in the fuel bowls only…not in the fuel tank!
Aerosol carb cleaners and carb “dip” products are designed for use with fully disassembled carbs. They will quickly kill and ruin any rubber components they come into contact with. They should be avoided.
Products sold on this website are manufactured via a continuous improvement philosophy and are subject to change without notice.
The high quality rubber parts sold by Randakk’s Cycle Shakk last indefinitely when properly installed and used. Once they are placed into service, it is considered a best practice to replace them whenever they are disturbed.
