Can you fill carburetors with Sea Foam for storage [SOLVED] Asked by Paul W. In Ohio Can you fill motorcycle carburetors with straight Sea Foam for winter storage?
Good question, Paul. It’s not necessary to use straight Sea Foam. Using a high concentration of Sea Foam in fuel will work to protect the engine and prevent gum and varnish from forming in a carb. Here’s a good storage routine for motorcycles:
• Add at least 1 ounce of Sea Foam for each gallon of tank fuel. Even better, add a greater concentration of Sea Foam to a low tank of fuel (8 oz of Sea Foam per gallon is just fine!).
• Run the engine long enough for the treatment to work through the entire fuel system.
If you’d like, you can also fog the intake and lubricate cylinders before storage.
Fog/Lubricate Gasoline Intakes
With the engine running, insert Sea Foam Spray straw (cut if needed) into intake throat
(carburetor) or directly before throttle plate opening (fuel injection). Spray a series of
3 to 5 bursts, then a final direct stream while shutting off engine.
After fogging the intake, allow engine to cool and remove spark plugs. Insert Deep Creep straw to
spray each cylinder cavity. Before re-inserting spark plugs, crank engine to rotate pistons. Note:
Deep Creep and Sea Foam Spray are interchangeable for chamber lubrication.
