Used it on my bikes and one of my cars. Seemed to help. Lots of forums talk about its benefits (for bikes and cars).

I always throw half of a can into the tank when I buy a used bike to diminish any crud that might be in the tank.

Yeah I've read a lot of good reviews about it, just wondered if anyone local had experience with it. Thanks for your info. My bike runs great with no issues, but a 95 with 54k on it surely has to have some some buildup somewhere in the system.

Seafoam is naptha, mineral spirits and isopropyl alcohol. Naptha does a little cleaning in the tank, the alcohol dissipates water, but that's about it. You need more than that to do a thorough cleaning. You can get isopropyl based fuel system drier at Vatozone. Find a BG dealer through www.bgfindashop.com and look for product #203, CF5. It'll do what others can't and also clean your valves and combustion chamber.

Nice post . Thanks, I have an older bike I'm gonna run this stuff through.

Regarding sea foam. I owned a bandit that sat and varnished before I bought it. Had lots of troulbe with the dirty fuel system the first year. I got it mostly straightened out with sea foam it seemed, but I'm sure the performance would be improved still with a a stronger product.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

I'll definitely need it when I get the RS back up and running. I'll let you know.

Actually, I need to stop by the shop and get the bike inspected. Again. Gimme a PM with a good time and I'll work my schedule around it. Friday the 18th would be best on my end.
