Seafoam is basically isopropanol and penetrating oil. Prevents ethanol and water from forming an acid that eats the aluminum fuel pumps and clogs the injectors with aluminum oxide particles that are too small to be filtered.
BMW F800GS has the same small orifices on their injector heads.
I replaced the stock injectors with less than 1000 miles on my BMW and since have added 24,000 miles with Seafoam at every fill up. No Issues. Berg is also doing great on the Seafoam diet with over 2,000. miles
I used Seafoam with great result on my carbed Kawi Brute Force 750 that got all clogged up after sitting for a few years. But on my street bikes I use Strarbrite Startron with every fill up....so far so good.

Do you know what the advantage is in using Seafoam as opposed to Startron?

BTW, your Indy kit works great on my F800GS...thank you.
