Adding fuel injector cleaner...

I did a search and didn't find as much info as i would of hoped. I got some quality fuel system cleaner for my car called BG 44k and was wondering about puting some in my 929?

Is it really nessassary or should i not bother with fuel injector/fuel system cleaner?

Don't know trey . Have never used it in either of the 2 FI motorcycles I have owned. Rarely use it in the cage, although maybe I should .

Re: Adding fuel injector cleaner...

BG is one of the top auto fuel additive companies out there, as far as this stuff hurting your bike I have serious doubts on that internal combustion is internal combustion, and fuel injectors spray just the same except on your car they generally are dirty because of where they are located in the fuel intake system.

Re: Adding fuel injector cleaner...

Motul and Motorex also do an injector or "fuel system" cleaner. From what customers have told me it makes a difference, by how much, would depend on how bad it was to start with.

Re: Adding fuel injector cleaner...

I also heard that just using premium gas will keep things clean because of the detergents and cleaners in the gas.

I put some fuel injector cleaner in my bike every spring.

Bikes and women - both have nice curves.

Re: Adding fuel injector cleaner...

I dont know about bikes but for cars, the stuff you put in the tank is not what the pro's use. The good stuff that the pro's use actually runs the engine. It is in a can and under pressure and it has a hose with a fitting that fits onto the shrader valve on the fuel rail. You will bypass the fuel pump so that when you crank the engine it runs off of the can. This is the good stuff, and I might just look into it for my bike.

p.s. For those who are not sure what the shrader valve is, its the fitting on the fuel rail where a technician can hook a fuel pressure gauge to when doing diagnostics.

for visual recognition, in case you're not aware, a Schraeder valve is the type of air valve on our wheels.

Pardon me, please, if I'm pointing out the obvious.

Re: Adding fuel injector cleaner...

Used to run Gumout through ALL of my previous bikes once a year. Whenever I had to yank the carbs, I'd pull them apart just to have a looksee. They were always sparkling clean. No orange silt build up or anything.

Re: Adding fuel injector cleaner...

I've never seen a "before and after" test where an additive helped the injector fire (spray pattern) better. And I've seen a lot of tests. I suppose it would be more of a maintenence thing rather than a fix sort of thing. But in any case, your question was if it would hurt. No I've never seen it to be detramental to an injector. So add away!
