Well Im going by what info I found on the internet. The company that makes RXP says its is an Fuel Additive.
I do use it in my pickup.

Im just wondering if others use it in there bike?
And its a little cheaper than sea foam, and its dose the same thing as RXP

This is some info from there site.

Manufacturer Information
RxP Fuel Additive, known as RxP Gas Kicker, works fast when added to Gasoline or Diesel Fuel to cause a more complete burn of the fuel. Carbon build-up in an engine is a result of incomplete combustion and causes high tailpipe emissions of unburned fuel. Using RxP Gas Kicker on a regular basis will de-carbonize the combustion chambers and fuel injectors and significantly reduce emissions from the tailpipe, including CO, HC, NOx, black smoke and particulates. Some customers use RxP Gas Kicker to help pass state mandated emissions test, but regular users find a more complete burn of the fuel also results in more horsepower, less engine pinging and better fuel economy. We recommend using RxP in every tankful for 3 or 4 fillups to de-carbonize the engine, then use it about every 3rd fill-up of fuel after that. This will keep the carbon from building back-up in the engine.

De-carbonization - What is decarbonization and how does it help the engine?
In the new engine the key word is "carbon," because the carbon that results from this unburned fuel begins to build up inside the combustion chamber (cylinder walls, the top of the piston, head, and exposed parts of the valves). This process is called "agglomeration," which means forming a mass from particles that retains its individuality. The more carbon that builds up over time the less efficient the engine becomes. As the engine becomes less and less efficient it produces more and more unburned fuel, which further speeds up the agglomeration. This robs the engine of performance and fuel economy. In the RxP technology, fuel is formulated to attach all the different molecules within the fuel together during combustion. This causes fuel to burn more completely in the combustion chamber and at the same time it begins a "de-carbonization" process. This de-carbonization is the opposite of the agglomeration process. De-carbonization results in regaining engine performance as well as restoring fuel economy. A clean engine runs better and pollutes much less.

Engine (New) - Is RxP good for new engines?
Yes. RxP keeps the engine clean allowing it to operate as designed.

Fuel Savings - Will RxP increase my fuel economy?
Usually, depending on the engine, the average engine will run more efficiently and thus see an increase in fuel economy.

Horsepower - Does RxP increase horsepower?
