that's not anywhere near the clear lake area. . .useful info for northsiders though

Give us a little history on the problem and what you've done to remedy it and maybe we can get you pointed in the right direction. Tried anything like "start your engines" or adding seafoam to your fuel? Does the bike sit for weeks at a time? was the fuel stabilized in the past?

regardless of who does the work, you should invest in a small bottle of Stabil fuel stabilizer if your bike is going to sit for more than a week. It's faaaar cheaper than paying shop labor to have carbs rebuilt.

Did you refuel since you put the seafoam? might want to add fresh premium fuel and another round of seafoam, especially if it ran "beautifully" before it sat. When is the last time the sparkplugs were changed? If you don't know, it's time to change them!

No reason to use Stabil if your using Seafoam. SF will stabilize fuel. FYI

Sounds like time or a carb cleaning and snchronizing, check tank for rust as well. Those older carbed bikes are a once they go out of synchrinozation (is that a word)

I understand that. . .just figured the seafoam was only used in one tank full of fuel. You are correct, seafoam will stabilize your fuel.

They are about the same price and the SF will do more. I don't even use Stabil since I started using SF. I was just trying to point out that benefit. There is nothing in my garage or driveway that doesnt have it in the tank right now.

They shouldn't get out of sync if they haven't been touched...what about fuel filter/fuel pump. Are they clean and free of debris...maybe just a fuel flow issue. If you can reach under the carbs, empty the float bowls from the float bowl screw and see if any debris comes out, or any fuel at all.

SEA FOAM Motor Treatment is a 100% pure petroleum product that safely and effectively cleans internal fuel and oil system components, helping your gasoline or diesel engine run cleaner and more efficiently. SEA FOAM is an EPA-registered product, and will not harm engine components, seals, gaskets, catalytic converters or oxygen sensors.

SEA FOAM liquefies gum and varnish deposits or internal engine contaminents, removing carbon deposits, freeing sticky valve lifters and rings curing rough idle, pinging and hesitation problems. By using SEA FOAM to eliminate varnish and carbon buildup, mechanics can more accurately diagnose mechanical problems that may exist. That is why Sea Foam has been so popular with professional mechanics for over 65 years.

As a fuel system additive, Sea Foam will clean fuel injectors, clean carbon, gum and varnish deposits, add lubricity to fuel, stabilize fuel for 2 years and control moisture.

As an oil system additive, Sea Foam controls moisture, gum, varnish and residue deposits.

No ones perfect I was told wrong
I use to use seafoam and liked it but now that I switched to bg I notice a difference every time I use there products
great example look at your dipstick on your car or truck notice the brown oil stain that's actually carbon build up. Now use seafoam in your oil change the oil notice the brown stain is still there. Do the same thing with bg 109 cleaner and notice no more brown stain.
