What should i do now?

Hi All!
i just did the seafoam treatment and somethisg weird is happening, after i flushed the carbs with seafoam for 24 hours i went back and drained them, then added a 50/50 mixture of seafoam and gas and i also added some to the tank following instructions on the bottle after running the engine for good 15 minutes i notice the front side of the engine was smoking because of the sea foam but the rear side didn't and also i can hear a little of a back fire any sugestions i can post videos with sound but i dint know how thank you in advance.

No expert but maybe the front is running rich and rear is running lean you may want to pull them and give it a proper clean up

I've never seen these seafoam bombs actually work. You're always going to get much better results pulling the carbs and cleaning them. All you're really cleaning letting it soak is the float bowls and the jets. Not the emulsion tubes or the jet circuit. None of the pilot circuit would be cleaned and thats usually the one that causes the most headaches. Did you check either setting on the carbs? The pilots or the sync could be off. Seafoam is better as a preventative. Get the carbs super clean and then use the seafoam to keep them clean.

Shut off your gas at the petcock when the bike is running and see what happens. If the float is stuck you might be flooding the carb. When you shut the gas off it lets the float bowl empty out. If your needle is stuck you'll probably have to tear them apart.

Well, not having a belly is going to make the compression uneven. The acct sound a little like they could be adjusted. I x2 the idea that you should just rip out the carbs and clean them. Not that hard if you rip out all that environmental crap and marble. Is it marbled?

ummm when you say compression you are referring to the back pressure right?
