Lucas Fuel Treatment

I purchased some Lucas fuel treatment for use in my truck at the recommendation of a co-worker. I have just added it so I don't have any numbers yet. But has anyone here used it on a bike, or at all for that matter.
The bike will start but it starts hard and I think I am going to wait till I can drain the tank and carbs to make sure I am not just making a problem worse. The PO said he had not ridden it in over a year but it had a new battery and tires before he decided to sell it, he did not keep it on a tender neither am I at the moment. The Lucas fuel treatment is supposed to be an "upper cylinder lubricant" and it is a thicker liquid, is seafoam like that? From reading I had assumed it was thinner, but we know what we get when we assume.

ive had my bike for 5 years now, i know with out seafoam i would have pulled carbs a couple times for cleaning, but i use it religously, every other tank ill put in 4 or 5 oz. (can says 1oz for 1 gal, but whows mesuring ) when im ready to ride, just a tap on the start butten, shes fires up and ready to run. i can run all day with out a hick up, i have not ever pulled the carbs off for cleaning, i see no reason to.

Lucas makes good stuff, I use all Lucas lubricants in my race car, but I would stick with Seafoam for bikes. It has been proven to work, and is also known to be safe. Some car products will damage bikes, especially fuel system cleaners. For example, if you put Gumout in your gas, you will likely be removing your carbs to replace every plastic and rubber part that comes in contact with fuel. Yet it is fine for cars. Jerry.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
