Default Sea Foam in gas tank, no start now

Well I got some sea foam for my car and decided to put some in my bike. Left it for a couple of days (not much gas in the tank, probably a dumb move on my part) and came back to start it and no go. Would the sea foam affect it. The bike (before I put the sea foam in) hadn't been run in two weeks. Any ideas?-

how much gas is "not much gas". I would drain it, pull plugs and clean them. Put in fresh gas and try it again.

Yeah, how much gas was in there, and how much Seafoam did you put in? You should only put in a few ounces for a full tank of gas.

Roger that. I probably put in what I was supposed to put in for a full tank. Brain was on off.

I usually do the whole fuel additive thing the tank or so before the next oil change. I guess I got it in my head hat the crap that is supposed to come loose will find its way into my crankcase so that is the best time to douche out the whole thing.

The Seafoam should only be in the tank and not the injectors since it hasn't run yet. I'd just add more gas if you put too much Seafoam in to get the right mixture. Easier than draining the tank.

Yeah, you might be able to just add gas to it and try to start it that way, it may take some cranking to get the fuel through the system but I would imagine it would fire up after that. The Seafoam to gas ratio was probably just too much!

I figured I would try to add more gas and see what happens first. Taking off/draining the tank is a pain. Will let you know!

that's not right, if you try to start and make the starter run, the seafoam will enter the fuel lines , rails, injectors in a second, cause the injectors are working to add fuel to the chamber to ignite. on another hand if he adds fuel to the mixture, it will spit all the seafoam into exhaust and then will get working.
