    Seafoam or clean?

    Yesterday I changed the oil, tuned brake lines, got my rear tire shipped in, and decided to tackle a bit of carb diagnosis. As it turns out, the right two vgas carbs were about 3k rpm worth of slack separate from the left side... so I adjusted the left side to match the right and now they...

    Seafoam+shotgun carb cleaning= Wow!

    Never had her run so good! I did the shotgun cleaning method I saw on here, and used b12 chemtool, and 100psi. I added seafoam to the gas tank, and also sprayed it (did you know it comes in aerosol form too?) in the carbs with the bike running as I throttled it up to keep it from dying. After...

    Hi fellas- Once again I can't use the search function on my phone but I'd like to add some Seafoam to my tank. I had my Carbs cleaned and jetted a few months ago when I installed Jon's (RIP) Slash Cuts. She ran awesome but currently she seems a little more weak than usual.. The can says it...

    Seafoam or Snake oil

    I looked at a can of seafoam at kragen and was surprised to see that they do not list anything of what it's made of usually they are petrollium distiliates says you can use it in motor oil and just about everything else sure makes you wonder.

    Seafoam miracle????

    Just got my '97 VMax out of a dealership 8K service. The bike was experiencing a strange hesitaion at about 3500 rpm. At slow speeds the bike ran relatively correct. But once I got it up to highway speed it experienced this odd thing. I could hear the left pipe ( Supertrapps) smooth and clear...

    Pulled bike out of storage...

    So I went over to the parental units house and grabbed the max out of the basement. I took a short video of me starting it for the first time. I believe this is the first video of the bike. It's just an iPhone video so it's not the best but it works. Ok so the sissy bar is off now as my wife...

    Carb Cleaning + Seafoam

    My bike runs like shite at low RPM once hot, I plan to shotgun the carbs but want to know if it would be advisable or NOT to pull the airbox and pour Seafoam directly into each carb before trying anything? Pro or cons to doing this? Bike running or not?

    Seafoam went up in $$$ locally!

    I bought a can of seafoam last year for 8 dollars. Went to the same store this year and it's now 15 bucks. Hard to find in Ontario. Napa carries it here I know. I think some car quests do too. How much are YOU paying for your seafoam? ________ hemp marijuana

    Got some seafoam to attempt and fix the backfiring issue. After searching and much reading the posts, I am reading different methods on how much to use, where to pour it, etc. What is the recommended use? 1/3 of a can in the tank? Entire can in the tank? Some in the carbs? Wanting to soak...
