Default Fuel injector cleaner

09 883. Whats recommended to run through? Recently acquired this bike, previous owner appears not to have taken to well of care. Changed probably plugs, oils and fuel filter( was black). Still have a small miss when light throttle or steady throttle at running speed.

I prefer Red Line SI1- one ounce per gallon. Chevron Techron complete fuel system cleaner or Techron Fuel Injector cleaner at the same treat rate would be my second choice.

I use Seafoam, but also have a carburetor bike. I have read that Techron is excellent, and I'm sure Red Line and others have competing products.

Seafoam, Techron, even Stabil has cleaner in it. They are all good but I found that the $0.97 bottle of the Walmart store brand does just as good. I treat three tanks at about 1K.

As a cleaner, or stabilizer? I believe Seafoam is a fuel stabilizer as well, IIRC.

Has anyone used Star Tron?
