I use the 2 stroke version in my chainsaw as it only get used for 3 or 4 months over winter. It's expensive but if you use your bikes for a month or so then run it on normal pump petrol and then put some if this in just before you stop using it for a few months.
I'd be worried about it burning too hot if I put that stuff through my bike. I use it in my MSR petrol stove and it definitely burns hotter than normal unleaded though I don't suppose a minute or so in a bike engine would do any real harm.

Seafoam--US product thats available on line in the UK. Will sort out lots of carbs if injected into the fuel line and left to soak in the float bowl. Also a good fuel additive. Also a bit swallowed by the engine will sort out gummed up rings--worked on my 89 CBR 600 which had real carb problems when I bought it as a non runner (left virtually standing for about 20 years!)

My mate in Colorado swears by it and he lives at altitude next to a ski resort--and there they definitely have ethanol in the fuel!!.
