I went to the Sea Foam site and they claim that it will stabilize gas/fuel for up to 2 years, is this the best of two worlds? Store it for the winter and clean out any problems in the spring? One ounce per gallon is what they recommend.;)

Oh yeah -- I add one can to each 10-gallons I purchase for the lawn equip here... that 10-gallons will last more than one year without fail (in some of the worst storage conditions). Started using it in the bikes several years back for over wintering - love it.

A quad stored out back had a tire issue -- kinda let it sit under a tarp that's in full afternoon sun... Started and ran wihtou trouble (pull-starter - took about 10-good tugs from a dry carb) when I thought to check it a month ago It was filled with the remnants of my 'summer' lawn fuel in fall of 2006 when it last moved.

Yeah, I'm comfortable saying that Seafoam does it. It can also be used as a starter fluid - ask my snowblower about that one

Sea foam is amazing stuff !!!. Never rebuild a carb unless you run an entire can of sea-foam threw the bike. One ounce per gallon is the mix. On a 5 gallon goldwing that's three full tanks to a can. It will make your bike run better, no if ands or buts. You will have to adjust the idle down since it will clean the small orifices and the bike will pull more fuel at idle. But it doesn't work fast, you need to run alot of miles for it to work. I have a half dozen vintage motorcycles and I could fill this page with stories of how it saved me alot of carb rebuilding. I use it inbikes, lawn equipment, vintage cars, etc.

There is no harm in dumping a full can of Sea Foam in a 5 or 6 gallon fuel tank.

Even at 100% Sea Foam, it will not damage carburetor parts.
So, if you need to clean something, just pour in a full can in the first fuel tank and drive it out.

That will let you know if the carbs really need a hard cleaning by hand.

Just did this exact thing this past week, didn't smoke and didn't hurt a thing.
