I think the key words here are: Tune-Up of 4 Cycle Gasoline Carbureted or Fuel Injected Engines Autos, Trucks, and Tractors. I don't think this would be safe on FI bikes, probably would attack the plastics.

Used the stuff in my dad's F150 SVT Lightning...AMAZING!!!!!

I would contact Sea-Foam to establish if it can be used...but, they use it in lawnmowers, etc

overall everyone that uses it says WOW!!!!

I dont know about sea foam....

But I know boiling water always worked on my old carberated cars...

Warm the engine fully
Raise the revs
Slowly pour boiling water in, dont let it stall
It would literally steam clean the entire intake, pistons, and exhaust!!

It was like an instant tune up, Thanks Grand Pa!!

I have been using seafoam in ALL my internal combustion engines. I would not be afraid to use it in my 109. I was a professional mechanic for 25yrs. I highly recommend this product and it will NOT attack plastic parts!!!!!! Very good for fuel injection keeps it clean :bigthumbsup: Just do not spill on your paint :eek:

Got some concerns on this product so here goes for those of you in the "know" on it.

1) Does it lower octane when added to fuel like say, STP does? If so, I'd really doubt its safe to use on our bikes, especially with the JSD's installed.

2) When added to oil it promises to "clean" many of the parts within the engine. How many of you out there wouldn't be afraid of jacking up your clutch by adding something like this to the crankcase? Love my bike too much to risk it personally, without seeing some data to back it up.

3) Is this stuff safe to add to full synthetic oil since its "100% petroleum based" as stated on its web-site? (Oil-Doc?)

4) What is it going to do to these new micro-guard oil filters many of us have bought from Amsoil?

Probably just being a nervous nit about some of these products, but I'd rather be nervous about them and get enough information to make a good desicion rather than run off and be the first to try it and end up needing a new engine / tranny / clutch / FI system... etc

Thanks for any info you guys may have.

I have used the Seafoam in all my vehicles as an additive to the fuel system-not a problem one.

I used it on the Farm for just about everything. Used it in the fuel only. Worked great on engines that were stored for long periods of time. Chainsaws, generators, small pump engines, etc. Have already used it on my M109 and I have the JSD-3M installed, no problems. It displaces water and cleans very well. Would recommend using it before putting your M109 up for the winter.

Don't really have "winter" exactly where I live.. we just have a month or two of lower than scorching temperatures and occassional rain.. after that its back to "Holy :edit: its hot today" for around 8-10 months.
