When it’s time for some fun on the trails with your dirt bike or ATV, the last thing you want to worry about is engine trouble.
But like any seasonally-used vehicle, dirt bikes and ATVs can experience common fuel-related problems that could end your day before it begins. No starting, hard starting or rough, inconsistent performance are all fuel-related problems you might face. With a little attention to preventive maintenance, though, you can steer clear of these issues.
Whether your dirt bike or ATV is a four stroke or two stroke, carbureted or fuel injected, its performance depends on a free flowing fuel system. Gasoline degrades over time, causing it to lose its volatility and leaving behind gummy residue that can block tiny passageways. So if you kept your bike or quad in the garage with untreated fuel for months, or even if it’s been a few weeks since your last ride, fuel might be to blame for performance issues.
HOW TO USE SEA FOAM TO PREVENT DIRTBIKE OR ATV ENGINE PROBLEMS
Regularly treating fuel with Sea Foam Motor Treatment is a simple way to help maintain its volatility and prevent harmful deposits from forming. Using it is simple. Just add 1 ounce per gallon of fuel, or 2 ounces per gallon to your two-stroke pre-mix.
If your dirtbike or ATV is running poorly and you suspect it’s because of fuel, you can also use Sea Foam Motor Treatment to clean out your fuel system. Add a whole can to a low tank of fuel, drive around for a few miles, then let it sit overnight. Start it and let it run for a few minutes the next day, then fill the tank with fresh gas and hit the trails. Sea Foam will keep working as you ride, reliquifying deposits and keeping your fuel system clean, while also lubricating upper engine parts and stabilizing fuel when your dirt bike or quad is not in use.
Remember, Sea Foam is made from petroleum ingredients and contains no harsh detergents or abrasive chemicals. It is safe for all gasoline dirt bike and ATV engines and you can’t add too much. Use it regularly for effortless starts, smooth running and worry-free riding.
