I am now also a big believer in Seafoam, but rarely use it in the gas tank of the Vulcan, because I ride it often enough that I can't afford to, and always keep fresh gas in it. About every 3 months I soak the carbs in it, and then use the rest of the can in the next couple tanks of gas. I recently removed the carbs to rejet, first time they had ever been apart in 45,000 miles, and they were very clean inside.
Right now my XT225 dual sport, XR400 dirt bike, and TRX250 quad all have Seafoam in the gas, (2 oz per gallon) they are not getting used much right now, I also have battery tenders on the quad and XT, and start and warm them up once a week, to keep the seals from deteriorating, cylinders from rusting, and other bad things.
I also have a '72 Pinto station wagon stored in my garage, I am about to remove and clean the carb, fill the 16 gallon tank with gas, and pour in 2 full cans of Seafoam. Ouch $$$. I also start this car up at least once a week, warm it up, drive it around the block in my residential area, bring it back and park it. It is kept maintained just like it was being driven, lubricated, oil and coolant changed, tires kept aired up, etc. I would drive it if AZ ever comes out of the dark ages and stops emissions testing cars that old, like every other state in the country has done, including CA. Anyway, +1 for Seafoam. Jerry.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
