Use Sea Foam

Let me just say that all this BS about Sea Foam is a bunch of horse hockey - at least that's what I thought until I ran a can of it through my engine.

I have 17 K on my 2003 Vulcan and it was running a little rough. I checked all the usual stuff - plugs, air filter, vacuum balance - and then bought a can of Sea Foam and have ran four doses of 4 oz. per tank of gas through it. The first two treatments did nothing and I knew I'd wasted my money. I didn't use any for two fill-ups after the second treatment and the bike was running better. Two more tankfuls and the bike is running like a champ. Faster starting, smoother idle and take off, and better mileage. I think my teeth are a shade whiter too (okay, just kidding). I am up to about 140 miles before going on to reserve, from about 130 miles.

Good call guys - and thanks.

Seafoam for me....

Just before I put my bike up for the winter, I dosed the tank up with Seafoam and ran the bike to make sure it got well into the carbs and into the system. In just the short time I ran it (had a warm spell before it got cold) I noticed an incredible boost in performance. Now, I can't wait until it gets warm so I can ride my 'new' bike.

Seafoam is a great thing.

Unhappy

I would love to run some through my VN, but I haven't found anywhere in Australia that has Seafoam, and most places have never even heard of it.
What am I to do , can I buy it online??

Have you tried a boat shop? Sea Foam was originally developed for mariene use.
Here is a link I hope it helps.
