Is Injector cleaner additive Safe

My RC has been sitting for a while. I have started it here n there but was just wondering if it is safe to add a fuel additive to it. I've always ran 91, if that makes any difference.

the only thing you should be adding is Sta-bil Fuel Stabilizer if it is going to sit

I use Seafoam occasionally in all of my cars.

Ditto on the Seafoam. I used to use Bardahl Injecrkleen in my 1200 Wing about every two months, really helped keep the carb slides from sticking. Have to agree on the fuel stabilzer for long periods sitting too, I put the stabilizer in and fill the tank before putting my bikes up for the winter. No ethanol based fuel either

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound

Forgive my ignorance, but is Seafoam for bikes as well. Ive never used or even heard of it. Think it would help unstick my Keihin flat slide carbs on a 1999 R1.

I have seen first hand what seafoam can do and I will say that its great stuff.
I have been into vintage bikes for a long time , mainly two strokes from the late 60's to early 70's and I have had some that are just gummed up and carbon so thick a screwdriver is needed to chip away and I had used seafoam on them all and found that in a tank or two the bikes were clean.
I mean clean from tank to exhaust port. Seems that seafoam just ate away any and all stuff that isnt supposed to be there.

+1 on seafoam. I use it in anything that sits. Bike, mowers, snowblower. Great stuff.
