Kinda OT, I committed a crime, NEED advice!

Ever since buying my present CJ, I have neglected my dirt bike. The crime is, I parked it 6 years ago and did not drain the gas out of it. Well, 6 years with gas turning to varnish, and time taking its toll, I decided I am in need of the adrenilane rush only a big dirt bike can give. I have pulled and drained the fuel tank, flushed it, pulled the carb, opened the float chamber, and sprayed carb cleaner inside and out. Got a lot of real sick varnish out in the process. My question is, I plan on mixing in some sea foam cleaner into the first tank of gas I run through it. Will I hurt anything with using sea foam on a 4 stroke honda motorcycle engine? Will it provide any more value/benefit for a better running bike? Any other suggestions for work to be done before starting it?

I have changed filter and oil, tires, greased it, lubed chain, cleaned it well along with air filter service.


BTW, it is a 1988 XR600R by Honda if that makes a difference.

Shame on you!!! [img]images/graemlins/spank.gif[/img] You should do your time on the seat of that miserable two-wheeled thing by keeping at least one (if not both) wheels off the ground as much as possible. [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

I wouldn't think that Sea Foam would work any differently on a 4-stroke bike than it would a 4-stroke Jeep. Just be aware of the smaller tank size and adjust how much you add accordingly.
