Ran Seafoam in my tank last week, didn't notice any difference right away, but...About 400 miles later, I let the bike sit a day, than when trying to run it on Sunday I had some problems. It started right up as usual and idled fine for about 20 seconds than dropped in idle down to about 500 RPM's and wouldn't go back up as it warmed up. I tryed driving it down the road and it ran fine, but when I stopped at a stop sign, it would die, it would start right back up but I would have to keep the RPM's up past 1500 or so or it would just die. So I took it home and looked at the spark, not oily but definitely black. I'm bouncing around ideas in my head and thinking does this have something to do with Seafoam cleaning some of the crap in my system and getting it stuck by my jets? Of course the first thing my wife says is I screwed it up by adding that stuff, I hate to think she's right, but I think she is. Should I add more or drain the carbs or rebuild? I'm stumped.

Re: Seafoam

I've run about 3 cans through mine since I owned it and have had no problems. Several of my friends, who all have different type bikes, have run it through theirs with no problems either. While it's in your tank, you will get poor mileage until it runs through.
