I've ran sea foam throttle body cleaner thru my bike. Made it smoke like a bitch for a lil but didn't really notice a difference

It seemed like it cleaned some carbon build up off but that's it. As far as performance I noticed nothing.

Re: Anyone ever clean thier throttle bodies?

I have cleaned my tbs, its not that hard at all if they are off the bike. As for the injectors, I would suggest finding a place to have them professionally cleaned and flow matched if you can. I got it done locally for $60, but after a couple of seasons of race gas, I didnt have much choice...

Re: Anyone ever clean thier throttle bodies?

Had a fuel delivery problem or in other words RPM was hesitating and would not go over 4.5K......Cleaned every part i can get my hands on that had to do with Fuel in the bike

Throttle Bodies , Fuel Header , Gas tank , fuel Pump , Lower and upper Injectors , put everything back together and i couldn`t be happier.
