Step 1: Throw your bike in a dumpster.

Step 2: Walk away.

Step 3: Don't look back.

Im not sure of The directions for seafoam but other Gas Detergents/Fuel Injector Cleaners and what not are made for 12+ gallon fuel tanks (when used in gas) so i typically divide those portions by 4 or 5 to get the specified amount for a full tank on a bike.

you might've used too much, go back to the gas station and pump more gas to offset the amount of seafoam you put in your tank. and definitely read the directions twice next time before blindly putting something into your machine.

Are you joking or are you just against reading directions?

I hope you didn't use the big bottle that treats a 14 gallon tank of gas

I'd empty the fuel tank with a siphon or something and put some real fuel in there.

On that note, I bet your injectors are clean!

I would think he needs to go buy new gas and drain the tank .. then start over. Check the plugs cause they are probably fouled as .

OP

Go to the corner store, look for NOS in the blue bottle.. usually near the energy drinks

Dump that in the tank and it should bump the HP up enough to clear it out..

Thats ROCKET in a can for all ya noobs!!

Ask the mods to remove the "mr" from your user name. That should help

You wont follow instructions anyway. Dump some gas a fill it back up. The NOS was a joke BTW. Please dont try that
