    Have you tried both? I haven't but Gumout works well for me. I also use it in all my lawn tools, my boat motor, everything that isn't running right and it clears them up. I did buy a can of seafoam but haven't tried it yet.

    Ive used every kind know to man in over 50+ years. They’re all good in there own way, just the Seafoam works
    the best for carburetors that have been sitting awhile. Of course once they stop up, there’s nothing you can do but take them apart and clean them.
    Sounds like you got it working. Great job.

    Glad I read through this thread, it answered some questions I had about my new to me RSV ('08 with 26,000 miles) compared to my last bike. I could tell just from riding it that it preferred higher revs but I didn't know if that was bad for the engine. Now I know not to worry about it. My last bike had a ton of low end torque, so it will be a little adjustment in riding style. I was also wondering about regular vs. premium since my last bike was 2000+ cc high compression monster that required premium. I am very pleased to discover that I can run regular. I have not checked mileage yet but I have a 5 day ride coming up in a couple of weeks that will be a good opportunity to do so. I may run some Seafoam through it first.......just because....
