Sea Foam question

Hi all, I know everyone here says that seafoam is the end all your problems magic elixer, but I put some in my tank the last time I filled it up and (though I am not complaining) my bike seems to be a bit, well, louder. Is this normal? It isn't popping or backfiring or anything negative, I just want to know if anyone else has experienced this particular phenomena. Thanks, kait

Not really, but if your jets were slightley plugged and running lean, it may have cleared them and running more gas through them. May cause more noise sence running better.

Run it on straight Seafoam and it will sound like a Alcohol dragster. A little bit goes along way.(just kidding)

I just put seafoam in my bike for the first time this week and put about 200 miles on it. I haven't noticed any difference, but then my bike ran beautifully before!

It is definitely a "good loud". I was just wondering if anyone else had noticed a difference. The bike only has 3500 miles on it, I got it with 1967 miles on it. It ran great before, but I thought a little cleanout would be good since I really don't know how it was treated before I got it.

I used a double dose on one tank and then the single dose on the next,it ran like a bat out of hell.Now its on straight gas and running real fine.On the double dose I did notice a difference,but it wasnt a loud sound,its was a ready to go sound.
