Talking Another Seafoam question :)

Ok, so I did some research on this stuff and I'm seeing that a lot of folks are adding too much seafoam in their tanks causing their bikes to not start. My question is, what is the exact amount of seafoam I should use on my CBR600F4i?

*Flame suit on*

No need for a flame suit that I know of. I can't answer cause I haven't tried it in my tank yet. Obviously tho, an entire bottle would be massive overkill.

Btw, you need to intro yourself in the New Members section. Otherwise, nobody will see the posts

Why not read the bottle and follow the directions?

I did the whole bottle and it burnt my spark plugs out. more and it would have burned the injecter tips off, this is real and has happened, but not to me. use a bout a quarter for a full tank

Dope! Is it true that we shouldn't add this to our crankshaft due to our wet clutch?

That I do know the answer to. You can add it to your oil per the instructions but its not for long term use. If you add it to the oil, you should change the oil within 50-100 miles. And it's not something you do every oil change

I wouldn't add anything EVER to my crankcase oil. That is just stupid if you ask me. No manufacturer or person with any common sense would tell you that it is a good idea to dilute motor oil.

I do believe that Seafoam is effective as a stabilizer and in certain circumstances it is useful in cleaning up Carbs, but other than that I would be careful in how I use it.

That's my .02.
