Cleans the fuel system.
Some people add it to their oil before a change, but I wouldn't.

Great stuff it is. I use it in all of my gas operated engines and it really works well. You can find it at Napa Auto parts stores and others if you check around.

The directions are on the can. Most guys put a couple of oz in the tank every few fill ups as regular maintainance, and 1 oz per gal to do a initial shock treatment on higher milage/older vehicles.

I use it more in the winter months depending on how the weather is. When the bike is going to sit idle due to bad weather I'll treat the gas and run the motor to get the treated fuel into the fuel system and then park the bike until the weather breaks and I can sneak in a ride. In the summer I use it about every 3k-4K miles.

I used Seafoam a couple of times and it stopped the missing and stalling instantly. It's a great product.

Not to hijack the thread but while we're on the subject I'll ask anyway. Since Seafoam is a fuel stabilizer can I use it to winterize the fuel system in my carbureted bike? Thanks in advance.

Yes it can, see post #3.

I just use Stabil when I put the bikes away for the winter though, Seafoam seems like overkill and would be an expensive stabilizer as it costs quite a bit more than Stabil does.

Yes you can and it makes a great fuel stabilizer for all gas operated engines. I use it in my lawn mower, chain saws, 4-wheeler, truck, car, and bike. Just follow the directions on the can and you won't have problems or be disappointed.

Just put 5 ounces of it in my 900. Also use it in my diesel Long Tractor and the Sears Garden tractor.
The stuff works with no BS. Worth every cent you pay for it.

Lucky...

Not really, if used as directed. Stabil at CT is 9.xx I think for 500ml whereas seafoam is 8 something for the same at carquest. The most Seafoam you ever have to use is 1 oz per gallon but a lot of people (myself included) just dump the can in the tank and are done with it. You WILL get more uses out of a bottle of Sta-bil though, and that's usually what I use as well. I throw seafoam into the tank in the spring.

It's funny how some other forums dismiss the stuff as complete snake oil. ex-500.com literally flames me when I advise someone to use Sea-foam instead of hauling their carbs apart for a complete cleaning.. :?
