Ok will it work on fuel injected bikes. I ride the 1300. I noticed last Fall that my bike wanted to shut down when I tried to throttle up. Just wondering If ethanol gas is the cause or maybe from using a regular fuel stabilizer for the last few years. I use a stabilizer because I store the bike for the winter. I bought Sea Foam and I'll add that in there to clean out the stabilizer.
I definitely didn't use the whole bottle, just followed the instructions. I did not have the symptoms you describe. I just wanted to see if the StarTron would make a noticeable difference.
Seafoam is a pretty good cleaner that I have used for years in cars, atv, and now the bike. Don't overdo it and just follow the directions. It can't hurt and it may help. I use it for winter storage too instead of StaBil. One less bottle of stuff to keep track of in the mess that is my garage...
Yes it'll work on fuel injected bikes. If you can find a non-ethanol station nearby, that'll eliminate quite a few issues especially wanting to shut down. Let us know how it works for you if you try it. I followed the instructions very closely.
I have been using this in everything. Not only does it treat the ethanol but it also helps clean. I used this clean carbs on 2 bikes simply by using it the tanks. 1 bike sat for about 3-4 years without being run. Needless to say this bike struggled to do 55mph after cleaning the tank and shut off valve. After about 3 tanks, it was running a lot better and would definitely do more than 55mph without struggling.
2 summers ago while on a ride with a few harley riders, 1 bike was sneezing & coughing. We added some of this to the tank and problem was solved.
I have had great experience with using this. I only add 1/2 ounce to the tank of our 950 when filling up.
was doing an oil change tonight and found this attached to my magnetic oil drain bolt. it doesn't look like it sheared off of anything. am i looking at a valve guide? is this a big deal? i haven't noticed any strange sounds or vibrations or performance. i'm pretty ignorant when it comes to...
Edit May 10:
I've corrected the issue but feel free to read the thread as I made some mistakes along the way and learned a few things. I removed and dismantled my carbs four times and only needed to do it once. While I became very efficient, each time increased the odds of mistakes or damage...
do all bikes have a crankcase breather? if not, why wouldn't a bike have a crankcase breather? why do some have an air filter attached to theirs but others don't? why does the vent hose direct back to the airbox so that it can be recycled back into the engine? why would you want that?
thoughts on fuel programmers that remap the ECU? there are fuel programmers that act as 'piggybacks' to your bike's stock ECU and basically just add a higher fuel/air ratio across the entire powerband, and then there are fuel programmers that actually remap the ECU altogether - changing spark...
Its time for me to start cleaning up my aftermarket wiring jobs on the bike.
I am going to make my own properly color coded and wrapped wire looms.
Question is has anyone had any experience with molex connectors?
I have been using them for vending and coffee machines for many years...
