Introduction: How to Use SeaFoam on a Motorcycle

In this instructable video, I attempted to fix a hesitation and backfiring problem on my Honda Nighthawk CB450SC using SeaFoam. There are many ways to use this product on a motorcycle, but I will show you how I did it on a motorcycle that was not ridden for several months.

I first drained the fuel in the carburetor bowls. Then I filled them up with a 50/50 mix of SeaFoam and fuel then let it idle until the mixture was finished. Then I left 100% seafoam in the carburetor bowls overnight. The following day, I added 8 to 9 capfuls of SeaFoam in the tank, drained the bowls, and let it idle.

This process improved the hesitation issues by about 50%, but the backfiring was still present. After another treatment, the hesitation improved even more.

I hope you enjoyed this video, and if you would like to see more videos, check out my channel at http://youtube.com/BrownBrady. Thanks for watching.

i just bought some of this

only one way of finding out if it really does what it says on the tin

Nice video! I think I will pick up a can of Seafoam at AutoZone, next time I'm in there.

I use about an ounce of SeaFoam with each tank fillup. I've never had problems with dirty carbs, or even with fuel sitting in the system for months (e.g. winter) at a time. I love this stuff.

I just discovered SeaFoam a month ago and it does wonders to carbs. Thanks for the comment.
