Fuel Injection Cleaner

2006 GL1800 48K miles. Stored the bike with fuel additive. At least two tanks through the bike now. Some minor hesitation on initial accleration when cold. After that, runs like a GL should. USed Techron last year. Not much noticeable difference. Any other cleaners out there that might display more favorable results?

Thank

TJ

This stuff is better then seafoam. If there is any water in the tank this will get rid of it. Hope this helps.

I think they all do about the same thing.
Some people swear by a steady diet of MMO or tranny fluid.

Im not familiar with the above product, for sure Seafoam cleans everything and harms nothing
For curing running problems: Use it at 2 ounces per gallon of fuel thru about 15-20 gallons = 3-4 tanks.
Makes it run like new, clean from the fuel pump, thru the injector system and injectors, intake valve stems and backs, piston tops
and cylinder head around valves... and finally the exhaust- cleans the cat- if equipped.

Many Wing owners run it thru the oil at 1 oz per qt oil and ride 100-200 miles.
Drain while engine warm. Makes things better~

A product designed to break up water molecules so they can pass thru the combustion system is different
than product designed to loosen, clean, and leave a lubricating layer.

Techron is good stuff when used continuously, possibly why many riding groups around here stop at Chevron stations
= its included in the gas, but you need to start with 3 bottles of it, THEN stay on their gas.

Not sure on its bike storage capability, for that I would use Seafoam at 1 oz to 1 gal,
or Stabil per its directions-- thats great for storing the lawn mower or the bike.

I'm not sure your issue lies in that area. When the bike is cold it runs off a fuel table. That is called open loop. It does not look at all the sensors as O2 sensors do not work until they get hot. The older the sensors get the longer it takes for the sensors to start working. It sounds to me like the bike is taking quite a while to go in to closed loop and using all the sensors. There is a relatively easy way to check when the bike goes in to closed loop by monitoring O2 sensor voltage if you want. Then you will know how long the bike runs in open loop. What you are doing won't hurt anything. Just not sure it will help. You might have to live with it or replace the sensors. Many manufacturers suggest replacement at 50K even if they are working. That is because they get slow. I'm assuming you get no fuel injection light.

Worked on the "big rigs" for 45 years now just riding my Wing whenever I can. Gets cold in Wisconsin.

There's not enough space on the web to include all the different "best ways" to insure, avert, convert, etc. etc. etc.!

And what works for one, may have adverse effects on another.
I mean...ice cream helped me quit smoking, but when I fed some to the bike, it started smoking. Go figure.

I didn't start it but I do use it, does seem to make it run smoother. Don't know if it would actually clean the injectors but IMO it can't hurt. That is TCW3 outboard oil, 1 oz to 5 gal.
You are probably right about the slow O2 sensors.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.
