    I'm not planning to buy new valves, seats etc and spend a lot of money on it. I've got only 19,600 km's on the clock.

     

      But thanks for your input. 

    I have strong doubts that an 1996 engine was designed for run any Ethanol. You might find related info on the Yamaha website.

    It took me a while to find such info for my 2001 bike, now I am sure i can use Gasohol.

    From that point of view stay safe and run it with pure Benzin. Ethanol may damage your rubber/plastic sealings.

    No engine minds higher octane, only too low octane for long time could create troubles.

     

    Assuming you did all 19,600km in 14 years, it means you do max 1,400km a year, 120km a  month. Most probably less.

    Furthermore assuming an average consumption of 6l/100km:

    => 84l/year => additional cost for use of 95 instead E95 approx 650THB per year , 55THB or 2l E10 a month !

    So what?

     

    In my humble opinion the mentioned not-well-running in the city comes more from partial use of gasohol and simply not running enough km to keep tank, carburator and seals clean from influence of Ethanol.

     

    Ride safe mate!

  2. They do not allow out/in crossings for a visa exempt entry at Mae Sot.

    He will need get an extension of his entry at immigration office unless he wants to make a trip to Cambodia or Laos. The only crossing to Myanmar that that allows them is Ranong.

    A friend of mine (on 30days visa excempt, G7 country) want to travel in Myanmar for approx 2 weeks.

    He already got his visa to Burma.

    He will leave Thailand in Mae Sai.

    Back to Thailand he wants to enter in Mae Sot.

    Will get get another 30days excempt at this border after 2 weeks stay in Myanmar?

    The Myanmar visa will allow him to leave the country at Mae Sai and then re-enter the country at Mae Sot and get a visa exempt entry.

    Only out/in border crossings for a visa exempt entry are not allowed at both locations.

    Thank you very much for this fast and precise info

  4. Unless you are a Chinese citizen or have residency in China you will not get a visa anywhere.

    Not entirely true. I got a Non Imm B visa in Beijing as a non-resident, non citizen. I did have an invitation from a BOI company to come to Thailand for a job interview- with a lot of paperwork attached that they kept. Turned the Non-Imm B into a WP and a series of extensions, without having to leave Thailand for another visa.

    I definitely wouldn't recommend it for as casual visa run.

    As a resident of China I tried to apply for a Non O in Shanghai to get extension of stay later. It was turned down to a tourist visa.
