Yeah , great video. That sound brought back some sweet memories from the mid 80,s.
My 1st Datto was a rally built 1600 with a competitive L18 bore / 1910cc with 240k struts diff n box.
And yes , his comments are spot on .

Save yourself the headache and heartache and just go the A12
Thats the cheapest solution with the 20% cc increase your allowed, its newer , stronger crank with a touch more torque than the A10
Then add improvement's slowly
Stroke it to 1400cc or Turbo , what ever tickles ya fancy , if money permits ect

Ive seen many Bike racers , go buy a new bike and rip off the efi and go back to carb
E10 holds around 0.5% water per liter, that can build up in the bottom of your tank over time and Servo,s for that matter. Many Servo,s have destroyed new car engines due to water in fuel especially towards the bottom of their huge tanks. And new car warranties dont cover that.
As for water in your ethanol or fuel , wouldnt hurt to flush your tank once in awhile.
And to remove water from Ethanol is simple without distilling.
Example : get a clear bottle with lid. Like a 4L water bottle . Add 20% salt / Liter of Ethanol and shake . ( The salt cant have Iodine ) It will go cloudy and bubble. Usually when bubbles stop which comes 1st. Let it sit and you get 2 layers for few minutes. Top layer is alcohol. Dont do it on a cold or wet day . As Alcohol can pull upto an ounce of water from the air in minutes.

Ethanol is miscible. Its the water that stuffs the Carbs most often.
