the Seaform is a cleaner more than a lubricant. I would only use it when changing the oil. Put the Seaform in the oil about 50-100 mls. before changing the oil. Dont leave it in the oil for long periods of time, and it works great as a cleaner.

I wanted to see just how well Seafoam would clean out sludge from the crankcase. I changed the oil, then put half a can of Seafoam into the new, clean oil. I then went out and rode for about 30 minutes. When I came back, I drained the "new" oil - it came out disgustingly grey, with chunks of black. I have added a Seafoam crankcase oil clean to my annual "winterizing" regimen as a result.

ive been an automotive tech for 20 or more years and ive used it alot on cars with stuck lifter that were tapping and on stuck rings. great stuff it is amazing what it will clean. i also use it on bikes in the crankcase, and my riding lawn mower cant say enough about it... im using it right now on this 88 goldwing that has been sitting for 16 years ive poured it down the inlet line on the carbs an let it sit for a day. before you couldnt even turn the throttle, now put the choke on and start her every time no problem.....ive also used the seafoam" deep creep" on her it is great.......

OK this seafoam has me thinking about giving a go!!! How much seafoam do I add to a tank of fuel? I do am going thru a complete maintenance this weekend. Running the seafoam before I start seems a good thing to do. I also hear some people adding it to OIL??? I read "add a 1/2 can to FRESH oil, run it for 50-100 miles. then do another oil/filter change. If so I am off to seafoam-ville

Have heard of valve noise after adding seafoam to oil. It can enter the lifter and take a few miles to gert it out. Or can just use it in the fuel and add 6 oz marvel mystery oil to crankcase and be done with it.
