Contains components that in high concentration may be harmful to rubber components.
Kind of like the ethanol in the fuel. 5% - OK, 10% - well?, start getting above that and you can have problems.
Manufacturer will recommend the strongest possible ratio to do the job without the possibility of damage. They want the product to perform and they also want to sell as much as possible!

If you get no answer, post a new thread giving details and we may be able to help.

I am talking about when people fill their fuel tanks with Seafoam and then add the recommended dose of gasoline to top it up.

I had the same miss too. I cleaned the throttle body, and removed the fuel pump and cleaned it but none of it worked. Then I got to thinking the only thing I changed lately was the air filter. My bike is still in stock. I changed the air filter to a high volume one. Put the old one back in and it ran great. The ecu must had went into limp mode with the high volume filter:-)

To add to that, mine developed similar symptoms. Spark plugs look clean, but the air filter was a mess. There is some foam on the metal sides that broke apart and it was a black goo mess everywhere.

I ordered a replacement, as soon as it comes in i'll test drive and post.
