Aren't there instructions? The key for keeping your bike in good working order over the weekend is to continue riding and never stop. This is southeast Texas. Buy a better jacket.

Follow label directions

You could use STA-BIL
Quote:
USAGE DIRECTIONS:

1 oz. (30mL) treats up to 2˝ gallons (9.5L) of fuel. Use STA-BILŽ only with FRESH FUEL, and keep gas can or tank 95% full to avoid condensation build up in tank during storage. Run Engine for 5 minutes after adding product to treat entire fuel system. Product does not contain alcohol.

i used to use stabil i switched to seafoam to see if it was as good since it is a little cheaper.

Seafoam seems to be working just fine as of now

Exactly... I don't see any need for fuel stabilizers here in our climate. Your bike won't be sitting THAT long. Just fill up the tank and let her sit.

I've never used stabilizer and never had a problem. Had race gas and pump sit in my bike for 6 months, and ran fine.

Keep toying with ethanol. I'm sure it will get you eventually. I'm not saying stabilizer works.

Anyone ever used seafoam in their bikes crank case? if so how long did u run and did u notice any appreciable detergent of carbon/sludge?

is it at all safe to assume that some bike engines are cleaner than car engines due to the power band and high rpm range that they must operate at to be in their usable ranges?
