I assume you recommend vinylester because of better compatibility with the alcohol content in fuel these days?

Probably Kevlar for the mounting points?

Do you know if Alberto uses epoxy or vinylester resin? I think most countries in Europe use 5% or less of ethanol, don't know about OZ.
Currently going RTW on a KTM 690 Rally, trip blog:
