What’s everyone running for fuel? (Husky FX350)

What’s everyone running for fuel? Just picked up a ‘20 Xtrainer for the Girlfriend. I ride a Husky FX350 and run 100 Low Lead aviation fuel since compression is high and pinging/detonation is a problem with premium unleaded. Any issue running the 100LL In The Xtrainer?
Also, what’s the consensus on premixing? After a short 1 hour ride oil level hasn’t moved… I was thinking 100:1 ratio premix for longevity?

  1. I have run nothing buy 100LL in my 17, with oil injection the first year and now without, it's the best.

  2. Have you removed the oil injection?

  3. 270 hours on premium ethanol free fuel no issues other then when I used castor based oil . DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT USE CASTOR BASED OILS IN A X. As much as I luv it it will kill your engine .

  4. I don't understand why people run AvGas… it's for planes… I run 91 octane no ethanol fuel in my 300RR, no issues for 2+ year.

  5. Ethanol free premuim

  6. Leave Oil Injection alone. The shape of the oil container makes it impossible to judge consumption visually. Beta has EXCELLENT Warranty Support, and statistically, it is VERY unlikely you will have OI issues. That said, buy a case of the exact oil recommended for the injection! Then buy a case of transmission oil. You said youre interested in longevity, buy accordingly. (They come in 4L bottles too). Dont be tempted to upgrade to the oil being used by your local racing buddies. Beta knows more than they do about The flow rates of the OI in her Bike. Lastly, teach your girlfriend about bike maintenance, and I guarantee her bike will ALWAYS look better and run better than yours… ud83dude42

  7. Regarding your question about premixing:

    If you mean 100:1 premix with no oil injection, I don't think that's enough oil. Beta recommends 60:1 for the non-OI Race Edition bikes and pre-OI RR bikes. I run 50:1 and some are even running 40:1, Less oil means lower emissions and lower cost of operation. More oil means better piston seal in the cylinder, more power, and greater engine longevity.

    If you mean 100:1 premix in addition to OI, I think that's too much oil. Beta's variable OI rate map purportedly ranges between 100:1 (1u0025) at idle and 32:1 (3.13u0025) at full throttle. If you add another 1u0025 oil by premixing you'll be running between 50:1 (2u0025) at idle and 24:1 (4.1u0025) at full throttle. It's unlikely you have good results trying to jet the carb for that mixture for the type of riding you'll be enjoying with this bike.

  8. 300+ hours running 87 octane ethanol-free pump gas premixed at 50:1 at elevations between 3000' and 10,000'. Works great!

  9. Just like everyone says.. I run 50:1.
    90 ethanol free. I have 2017

  10. 3.5 gallons of 112 with 1.5 gallons of 93= 100. The oil tank is odd shaped and won't seem like it's working until it uses a 1/3 of the oil. Aa long as you see smoke, bubbles in the oil line and the takes some oil you're safe. Can always adjust the TPS clockwise a smidge if you don't think it's pumping enough oil.

  11. Cheap gas works just fine

  12. Thanks for the all the input everybody!

  13. Anything that is ethanol free.

  14. Anything with 91 octane, we don't have any better in my area and the bike runs just fine!

  15. Premium here in Canada is 91 and that's I've been using since i bought mine.
    Oil tank shape is kinda horizontal so you wanna hold the bike upright to check/ fill the oil tank.
    Oil consumption varies hugely depend on your riding style, single track of slow technical stuff it'll burn very little, Street riding or high speed riding it burns a lot more.
    1 L bottle late me about 24 hours (650 km / 450 miles)

  16. Get the best ethanol free pump gas you can find and call it a day. There is zero benefit to running high octane fuel in that bike. Lead content in motor fuels was regulated for a reason, the health detriments are well documented. Your riding pals will thank you. ud83dude09

  17. Ethanol-free fuel!

  18. 100ll will clog up your injectors

  19. I run Av gas 100LL mixed at 50:1 because my oil injection quite working at 15 hours

  20. I run 100 octane at 50:1 liquimoly oil with a mix of slow trials type riding and faster open trails. Never had any issues.

  21. Try to find anything that is non-ethanol

  22. you won't see the oil level drop just by taking the cap off anyway, there is a u bend arrangement so it always looks full, take off the side panel to check it, many people have run the oil injection for long hours without issue, including myself, just use regular pump gas and ride it

  23. Oil wont move noticeably when riding for 1 hour hahaha, 1 tank of oil lasts for 4 tanks. Its a brand new bike, just put the recommended fuel in it ??

  24. Premium and redline 50:1

  25. 93 unleaded premium. No issues running OI. Variable oil consumption depending on riding. Less on single track more on high speed stuff
