How much seafoam do you guys run per tank?

I finished rebuilding my carbs and the bike ran beautifully. The next day I noticed it was extremely sluggish. I put about an ounce of seafoam in the tank and beat on it 50 miles in the 7-8k RPM's until the jets were cleared out, promising myself not to forget to do that in the future. How much seafoam area all of you running per tank? Is an ounce too much?

I put Seafoam in only about every third tank. I use about 3-4 oz. per tank. No fuel problems so far.

About 2-3 oz every full tank during the off season when I only ride 1 or 2 times per month and the same amount once a month during good weather when I ride every weekend.

When I had trouble like that, someone on here told me to fill the tank and put in about 1/2 a can (the small can of course) but that was just a one time thing to really clean my carbs out. After that what the other guys here are saying sounds good. Im not sure if its all that important on the number of times you use it, maybe depends on how often you ride.
