A quarter of a can would be 4 ounces which is one ounce more than the 3 ounces one normally puts in. I don't think one extra ounce would be a problem. Most people don't measure, they go by the "glug glug" method. (one glug equals one ounce). I'm thinking the Seafoam knocked something loose, like Cindy said, and it was hanging up on the the needle valve. Something that's cheap and easy to try is start the bike, turn off the gas and let the bike die. Open the valve, let the bowls fill up and repeat. Idea is that the gunk is hung up on the needle and by letting them drop all the way down-they can flush themselves clean. Seafoam dissolves gunk slowly but surely. You could notice a difference letting it sit overnight too. I'd suggest at the next fill up to add 3 ounces of Seafoam and then every month or so. That'll keep junk from building up to "toxic levels" in the first place.
