I've been considering running Sea Foam through the Trophy as a maintenance procedure. Any thoughts? Does this stuff really work or is it just snake oil?

I've used it in my ZX1100 and Bonneville before. It did help get my Ninja running one time after it had sat for an extended period. Seems OK, and hasn't done any harm to my bikes that I can tell.

This winter I tried stabil in the fuel onm my ninja instead, but still drained the carbs.

It sounds like Sea Foam is a winner then. I'll give it a go when I start the bike up this spring. Thanks for your opinions.

I have a 96 1200 that sat for a long time before I purchased it. About 50 miles from the dealer, go figure, it started leaking fuel from the air box. A buddy said it could be a stuck float in the carb, and pointed out Sea Foam, and I tried it. About a tank of fuel later it was no longer leaking. I'm sold on it.
