Hello everyone; I'm new this site i have a 1992 aspy.Trike (new to me).My question is i added half a can to my gas tank, or should i have added the whole can. I will add the rest of it to my crankcase and change the oil and filter after running it for a 100 miles.It has 82,000 miles on it.

I use Seafoam in my gas every time I fill up. When I got the bike, it had a minor surging problem at idle. From reading, it was suggested to clean out the idle circuits in the carbs. I did run a half can each, with a couple of tanks and the surging problem was solved. I still use a few ounces at every fill up just to maintain. I'm not sure I would suggest using it in the crankcase on a full time basis. I have heard it used as a clean up procedure, where it is added for a few hundred miles and then drained for an oil change. It will surely thin out the viscosity of whatever oil you are using, and that would not seem to me, to be a good thing for continuous use.

I was told a long time ago that just before an oil change,(50 miles) that adding a half of small can of liquid wrench to oil will dissolve all gunk for oil and filter change. I've done this on my cars and trucks in the past, but I haven't done this on Goldwing yet. I sort of hesitant because of clutches.
