I use seafoam in all my engines - top notch shit.. and instead of working like a blanket that stabil does it chemically bonds with the gas.. so you get your tank near empty, pour some in, fill it up a bit to mix, run the engine for about 5 mins or until it reaches operating temperature and good to go - everything is protected - fuel injectors, carbs, etc. etc. And bonus seafoam is an awesome cleaner. Mechanics who know will put in seafoam on a rough running engine before they turn a wrench. It cleans the shit out of the fuel system. I highly recommend it.

I also found turbo blue and thrashing the R1 on the track cleans out the system too, lol.. Tried that this past weekend.

on the wings i put half a can of seafoam in with a full tank of gas. you don't need it or any everytime you fill up just a few times during your riding season and then for winter storage

no way not even close to half a can - like 6 oz or something.. A regular size can last me like 5 years

when you mix it with the gas and run the bike you will smell it coming out the exhaust - that is when you know it is completely through your fuel system and safe to turn off the bike and let it sit for winter..

Give me a highball of JP8 with a glob of lithium grease for garnish and I'm good.

Jet fuel and lithium. Interesting choice... not for me though, have done enough of both at work to last 3 lifetimes.
