    Its kinda like those nice hot rods that people keep in their garage and only take them out a few times a month to show off... thats how my bike will be, kinda like how my nissan is that also sits in the garage all nice and pretty :-)
    That E10 in fuel is already doing damage to carburetors on lawn mowers and weed wacker's, i don't need damage to my bike carbs...
    Drain the float bowls on your carbs.

    there is way too much work involved to get to those carbs bowls... As long as i ride it every few days i will be ok, the problem will happen if i let the bike sit for weeks at a time... which i will not let happen

    You can also cut fuel at the petcock,let the bike idle and let the gas in the carbs run out which is to the same end as draining the bowls. My kz900 has few side covers so getting at the carbs is easy, one major advantage to not having much bodywork.
