    Put a few ounces of Seafoam in my KLR tank and was impressed with the results. Ran alot smoother and not sure if it was the nice warm day or the Seafoam, but the varying idle issue I was dealing with was for the most part gone. It says you can put a few oz.'s in the crankcase to clean everything up. I was just wondering what that would do for a bike with a wet clutch? Anyone put this stuff in their oil? Terry

    I have put it in my cars, my wet clutched 1500 cc street bike but have not in my DRZ, not because I fear anything, just I ride it years run and it does not sit and collect moisture in the crankcase like the mean streak does over the winter...

    Hey Will, it is great stuff but not something to put in your oil for an extended period... just a few minutes to let it loosen stuff up thinning oil is not good. I have a buddy who puts it in the oil for a few minutes right before an oil change... he loves it... i use it in the fuel on a regular basis in the bikes and the cars... great stuff...
