Then maybe some Sea Foam through the intake till it almost chokes. Let sit, then burn the Sea Foam out. I like Lucas oil as well but have only run that in harley engines.

I usually run a bottle of lucas over 3-4 tanks on my xb12 every couple of months. When I cracked her open recently for this tranny bearing issue it was very clean inside. Pete was really surprised how clean it was and that crosshatching still looked great. I'm actually in the process right now of running a tank of gas and mystery through the baby buell I just rebuilt to break her in.
+1 on the Marvel Mystery Oil bro. I use it on any engine that has sat for long periods. Pull the plugs, pour some in and let it sit and then either turn the crank slowly by hand or just bump the motor a little and let it sit some more. And of course fresh oil, plugs and filter without a doubt. Seafoam is some good stuff too. I bought a bike that sat for a year and after I got it running I ran a few tanks with some Seafoam mixed in and it cleaned up nice and ran like new. I still use it on my GSXR and Harley if they start running a little rough and it always helps.

When you say "pour over the top" are you meaning pour into the top end? or once the head is removeD?
Yup, or through spark plug holes, just a little to get into the rings.

I've found the o-rings and seals in fuel pumps seem to last longer when usuing Marvel once in a while. Lucas Oil I tried on a whim and it seams to really smooth out the Buell/Harley. It's hard to explain but it just sounds and feels like the engine is just "buttery" lol?!

I use seafoam in my car once a year when doing plugs and fluids. Choke it out, let sit 5 mins, start her up and smoke out the hood for 15 mins till she runs smokeless. Like a brand new engine, Everytime.

I haven't tried seafoam through the intake or crank case vacuum line yet on the bikes.

Marvel is good for cleaning fuel injectors too. Not as good as fuel injector cleaner but it will work, just takes longer. I had a clogged rear injector on the xb12 after the store closed. Pulled both and soaked in Marvel over night. Next morning tested both with a home made rig (12v wall wart, switch, 2 aligator clips, small section of hose) and both injectors were night and day different.
