Any definitive info on using E10 petrol in the ZX12.I always use super unleaded .Apparently loss of power is going to be an issue (aintthatasuprise) .Also heard of piston problems. Will the high compression engine at high revs be an issue. Thanks for any info.

Might need to richen the AFR. Probably make the same power if not a little kick in the torque.
would be more concerned that it will have less range on a tank of fuel. Once AFR is set 12.8 up top and 13 or so low and mid rev range the ethanol will resist detention.
E85 is a great cheap race gas. So E10 will be fine once tuned properly.

dont worry about it, keep the tank full to prevent condensation.
