Did you have to modify your XT in any way to run the ethanol blend?

Ride safe, Jason.
As you guessed Jason E85 is for the Low temperature, I also make changes in the ECU where it's possible to change the air/fuel ratio from -128 to +128 to make the bike runt smother or to have some more power at the bottom.

Leaky forks

I noticed some oil leaking on my left fork a couple of days ago (XT660R 2006). The bike has only ~9K Km and the previous owner upgraded the front suspension to Wilbers. I tried cleaning the forks using adhesive tape as suggested here and I think some of the tape got stuck inside and is still there. I tried to get the tape out with some film negative but nothing came out. I could not remove the dust seals as suggested here to give it a thorough cleaning. The forks are still leaking. Is there anything else I can do before taking it to somebody?

Beatiful bike i was really hoping to get one but they were tooo expensive around here and this year yamaha just stopped bringing them since obviously nobody would buy one. There are a couple used ones around maybe one day they will be cheap enough for me to grab...
