Seafoam useage

Is it OK to put seafoam in oil of motorcycles with wet clutch. Wanted to run through before changing oil, but not sure if it would hurt wet clutch..

I would not add any additives in my oil. One thing I've done in the past on older bikes is to put new oil and filters in, run bike to operating temperature and drain it out as soon as engine just bearly cools down. Then put new oil and filter in. It's kinda like flushing the system without any harmful effects.

Cool, that's what I though. Just wanted to check, since seafoam is a detergent didn't want to harm clutch...

I put 3 oz of seafoam in my 650 crankcase last fall, about 2 weeks before I did a full oil and filter change.

The instructions on the can says you can use it in your oil and gas. I dont know if I would want to put it in with fresh oil.

I doubt it would hurt anything - could not find any negative reports on using it in the oil on a MC with google.

The thing you need to worry about on a MC wet clutch is putting something in that is too slippery, like a silicon oil additive.

BTW, I like the way autospell changed your title on this thread: seafood LOL!

I like getting fish sandwiches at McDonalds, cant eat cheeseburgers all the time.

But I always ask for a fish sandwich, fries and a drink please.

Do you want the FishMeal?!

No. I do not want Fishmeal!

I hate it even more when you spell a word incorrectly

and autospell, which has the entire dictionary at its disposal, cannot even GUESS what word you are trying to say!

THAT is embarrassing!
