Should I use Sea-Foam?

Seems like a good idea.
But so did lead in gasoline.
At first.

Should I use Sea-Foam?

Where do you intend to use it?

What is your goal? I've used Seafoam with decent success. A better product for fuel system cleaning and fuel preservation is K100.

I used Seafoam in my 2002 Triumph Sprint to help clean up some injectors that seemed to be getting a bit dirty. Engine performance improved. No issues.

I use sta-bil when my bikes are going to sit for a couple months and never had any issues.
But then again I've stored bikes for months on end without any fuel stabilizer and not had any issues.

If your intended use is to clean your engine then I see no risk.

Seafoam won't hurt anything. I've known people who have used it on carbureted bikes that were running rough, and it improved their issues. Not a fix all, but might help remove some gunk for you.

I used it in a 1969 F250 Dump runner that was running rough. Good Lord, it was like a rebuild in a can. Seemed to clean out and somehow repair the accelerator pump. YMMV.

I run Sea Foam through all bikes and cars every other year. I can't say it has ever made a noticeable improvement on this cycle but it gives me warm fuzzies like I'm actually cleaning some crud out of the fuel system.

Years ago it DID make a difference on a friends very high mileage Ford Ranger. It really cleaned up a rough idle. Perhaps my consistent use prevents things from ever getting bad?

Follow as intended and you should be just fine.

If you are having issues with the carburetor gumming up, I add Yamalube Ring Free to a can of gas with some fuel stabilizer any time I get a jug of gas regardless if it's for a lawnmower or a track bike. It's kept anything carbureted working without a hitch even after sitting for months. It's also revived gummed up carbs just by leaving that gas in them.
