Stock fuel system but i don't usually leave the e85 in the bike for long after a trackday or race weekend. I switch it back to pump then run the fuel through the bike just for piece of mind as the bike sits for weeks sometime without any use.

I've left all the maps exactly the same as my 95RON tune except for adding about 35% more fuel. E85 measures out to be actually about E75 here in thailand so if you're getting real good e85 you would need more fuel.

Well Im using my Gen4 for whatever is thrown my way. . . I do the odd 8th mile, quarter and then of course the longer runs . . whereas I run PCV with a street circuit map for trackdays, would lover to have a map for a streetoutlaw evening to just gas it.. top revs power and running Sunoco Green E15 or MR12. . I can buy both of there in my country
Im not really interested in E85

then for fun I drive a british racing green MINI Cooper S
