Read the can as different brands call for different ratios, but I go by the 1/2 oz per gallon rule.

How many miles should i run the Seafoam in the crank case before oil change? Motorcycles Unlimited is about 27 miles from me. Would that be good enough?

I'm not real big about running it in the crankcase on bikes, especially with wet clutches.

Dave,
Try running a couple of tankfuls through, you are probaby also due for a fuel filter.

I put less than 4oz in a tank full. Ill tell you if I notice any diff. Im still trying to burn all that fuel. Really hard with this kinda weather outside.

I have noticed tho that there are instances AFTER running about 100 miles with seafoam that I have hard starts. Hard = start after 2nd-3rd try. Before I used to start first time every time.

Im not making a big deal out of it until it happens with regular fuel in the tank.
