    I fill mine with non ethanol gas and marine Stabil mix, then run the bike to get it throughout the fuel system, check once mid season to top up tank if needed. Battery is next to me with a trickle charger nearby that only goes on the battery a couple of times over the winter season.

      We praise Seafoam and I was really surprised about it. Dang guess I will add Stabil to my gas for winter storage.

        I didn't see that he did any test regarding how well each cleans carburetors and injectors. Isn't that why we all use Seafoam?

          interesting info but, i for one agree with Steve, i use seafoam to keep my injectors top end clean clean and marine stabil for winter storage on my antique tractors, lawn mowers, and other yard tools. very seldom do i have a problem starting them in the spring. of course Trigger never sets more than a couple of weeks so she doesn't hibernate

              I am undergoing back surgery next Monday (Nov 9), so I won't be able to ride for at least a couple of months. I was planning on putting some Sta-Bil in the gas tanks, but now, I'm wondering if I shouldn't use something else. I live in North Texas.

                IMO Stabil will be fine. I have been using it for years in Mi and Oh and never had an issue. I take those Youtube opinionated non scientific or lab controlled videos as mostly Bullshit. That kid has a few other videos out that appear to be like he knows what he is talking about but if you look past the production of the video you will realize that he is full of BS with no real evidence of shit. All just a production of a video.

              always use non ethanol and stabilizer for storage. and in fl, do annual tank drain, dry, cool, refill. . and there is a fungus that eats ethanol...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baudoinia_compniacensis

                I run Seafoam in all of my gas powered motors. For winter storage I fill tank with gas, shut off the tank and run carbs totally out of fuel. When spring comes I drain the storage gas, refill with fresh, open gas shutoff and enjoy. In case your wondering I remix the storage gas bits at a time into fresh fuel so not to waste. Where I live in Texas I don’t have real long winters so this process works very well for me.

                I swear by Seafoam. I buy it by the biggest container they make and use a turkey baster to "siphon it out" of the can! Makes it easy to deposit into a tank using the ounces measurements on the side of the baster tube.

                  Since Stabil comes in a bottle with a measure on the side, I just use an old bottle and dump the Seafoam in there for low quantity measurement.
