B 12 Chemtool

I was told that a small amount of B12 Chemtool in the fuel tank will help to clean the carb. Anybody ever tried this?

Not even close to a proper cleaning, if that's what you are asking. But many people use it in their car gas tanks. Not me, simply because it has acetone in it. Or at least it did. Maybe I should go out there and check it again. Acetone will eat rubber.

If you have a dirty carb, and you add seafoam to it, it will help to remove the varnish on it, but it could also loosen it up and put it in your jets to get stopped up.

That's just my opinion, I say, pull it and clean it.

Agree 110 octane cleans her right up. Unless its a really dirty carb then it just clogs up the jets.

If you're looking for routine cleaning I would use seafoam, but if you're looking for a magic cleaner, there's not one.

I agree ↑↑↑↑↑↑. There's really no substitute for removing the carb and giving it a good cleaning. If the carb is already stopped up, those cleaners may help sometimes, but usually not.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Thanks for the feedback folks! I don't THINK the carb is really dirty since there are no acceleration or performance issues. When I let off the throttle the engine kinda backfires, not the loud bang, but the puh,puh, puh sound until it settles into idle speed. I'm a little nervous about pulling the carb since I've never messed with one before, but don't want to pay a mechanic and I have downloaded a service manual that shows the process. Is it difficult? Looks a little Scary.

Yeah, it doesn't really sound like your carb needs cleaning, so if you wanted to use the carb cleaners/seafoam or whatever brand, it would probably be good preventive maintenance for your carb.

To me, it's not really too hard, but I've done it a lot. If you get a real dirty carb, sometimes it might take a couple times to get it clean.
