So my VN900C which has 7,050 miles on it is going in for its scheduled serviice tomorrow. I was going to put in some Sea Foam for the first time tomorrow since the shop I go to is 60 miles away. Do you think it's better to add it to my fuel tank before the service, after the service, or it probably won't matter. I don't think I will probably add it to the oil since I change that every 800-1000 miles (I get unlimited oil changes and two services a year for free).

My bike seems to me to run a little on the rich side, but overall it runs well, so I'm curious to see if the Sea Foam will do anything.

Thanks,

Wow what a nice benefit, unlimited oil changes! Is that a general perk from the dealer you bought from, or some sort of service contract plan?

As to the SeaFoam, I can't think of any particular reason it would make a difference either way. Your service place won't notice it's in there, and it's just something nice to do for your bike every once in a while to keep things clean on the inside. I tend to use it about once a month.

If you're talking about putting it in the crank case, I'd say about 100 miles before the oil change. Try reading what the side of the can says. I use synthetic oil and change mine every 4000 miles without any additives. Many people change theirs at 3000, especially if they're using dino oil or a blend. It's cheap insurance for a longer engine life. If you decide to go synthetic, I'd probably refrain from using Seafoam in the crank. To keep a long explanation short, it's not needed then.
