    I have a ATV that doesn't get ran often enough. Have to run with some choke or it dies.
    Last time this happened I took it to the dealer to have the carbs cleaned at a cost of $300.

    This time I am thinking about adding a product called "Seafoam" to the gas and try letting that help clean the primaries before taking it back to the dealer.

    I have never used Seafoam. Anyone have any experience with this stuff? Other suggestions?

    I use a product called Street Urchin to do that task... :) Seriously, no. I've only used STP which was useless.

    Seafoam is a real product. I have read both positive and negative things about the stuff. Have never used it. Can be fed directly into an engine, added to the crankcase, or added to the fuel.

    I may give it a try just to see if it is any good. This gas with corn squeezins in it is just murder on engines and fuel system.

    I used it on a boat (75 hp Johnson 4 cylinder 2-cycle) when one of the carbs was clogged, was never able to get it unclogged. It made its last couple runs on 2 cylinders. If nothing at all is flowing through the carb, it's probably too late for Seafoam, otherwise I'd give it a try. I've never heard anything really negative about it.
