woke the FZ1 up, very well. Throttle response was better, fuel mileage went up about 3 mpg, idle was smoother too. Never got that much from SeaFoam.
go spend the $6 and report back.

Would recommend these for a bike that simply has mileage, but never sits?

I've been wondering if at 32k+ miles I should run some type of injector/engine cleaner.

there is enough detergent in gasoline to keep me from really using these things (in my bike) i have around 30,000 miles on my bike and have only tried to use injector cleaner once (didnt even use anywhere near the whole bottle) and that was about 12,000mi ago or so, and noticed no discernible difference if anything at all.

I may go buy some of the lucas oil stuff just to try it once more and see if i find any difference, but unless these products help prolong the time before change of a bike with fouled plugs or anything "useful" such as that, i really dont buy into them.

STP and the other is pretty much is snake oil.

seafoam was used about once a month on the KTM and other dirt bikes.

I tried the Lucas stuff in the FZ a few months ago and was amazed.
I have a big 32oz bottle of it, just because. I think it works better than SeaFoam.
