    ZRX MOT

    Took my ZRX for its MOT, only 3rd one since 2006, now proudly sporting 4400 miles, it was bloody cold, but ended up going for a nice blast round the A70 back roads, stuck a gallon of aspen fuel in it pre run, pure petrol, no ethanol, no issues, no worries

    Now that sir...…………………………..is one smart Rex

    I think we lose sight of how smart they are in standard trim (as we dont see many) but a credit to you, and in a nice un-common colour to boot

    thanks guys for your very kind comments, I understand it spent many years indoors, I consider myself very fortunate to have it, the previous owner is coming up for a weekend in November with his wife for a visit, I must buy him a couple of beers at least!

    Lovely looking Rex Sir.
    Regarding the Aspen fuel I was in France last week and my friend who owns the place we were staying in was given some for chainsaws etc if they were going to spend time idle.
    As it appears to be ethanol free I wonder if we should use as much as possible in the tanks over winter if not in use?
    If you have knowledge of this stuff please let us know.
    Cheers
    Ian

    Re: ZRX MOT

    hi ian, yep aspen is primarily made for chainsaws and lawnmowers etc, there are considerable health risks for people using these every day due to the additives in normal fuel, aspen has a very informative website https://aspenfuel.co.uk/

    so basically, get your tank as low as possible, I don't usually bother draining mine, then a gallon of this stuff will absorb no water like normal fuel so no rusting, and do no damage whatsoever to your carbs/jets/fuel lines, it will also allow the bike to fire up easily in the spring and it doesn't stink like pump petrol!

    It's reasonably widely available, though I have a 100 mile round trip to get mine, which I did yesterday, and four gallons for my classics cost 72, still worth it though I reckon
