It really made the outboard idle and run much better and has worked in my 400 Husky and several other four stroke bikes as well. For a bike like yours that has sat around for that long this Ring Free treatment is a must. Houston Yamaha on 1960 has it but you have to ask for it at the parts counter. Mercury makes it as well in their Quicksilver lubricant line.
Thanks for the info. I'm guessing that with ring issues compression would suffer. I did a compression check and all 3 cylinders were well within specs.

Ring Free helps most on the intake stroke. It loosens up the ring allowing oil to seal the ring so it gets a better charge.
It worked for me.

Interesting. If I find some I may give it a try. Can't hurt, right?
