Thumbs up SeaFoam

Sea Foam, does it work? Absolutley! My father in law's honda rebel sat for 4yrs never started or moved. took the fuel line off the petcock, using a funnel ran seafoam straight into carbs and cranked the bike...it took about 5 mins of trying (keep in mind you have to keep blipping the idle to help loosen the carbs) for the bike to idle. After that we put the rest of the can seafom into the tank with a bit of gas not a full tank and kept reving the engine, there was a lot of carbon blowing out the exhaust. Once the tank went empty we added one more can of seafoam and a full tank of gas. we took the bike out to the street, the bike ran a little rough obviously but after a few minutes of riding hard no problems it was running just as good 4yrs prior. The bike starts up no problem and runs smoothly. Im a beliver of Mechanic in a can LOL

I use it as well on my cars about every couple of years. Suck it into the engine through the vacuum on the brake booster. Let it sit for about 20 mins then idle it till all the smoke stops coming from the exhaust. I change the oil after that as well just for good measure.
