Thanks byte2022. I'll tell him about it. I just wish my friend already had this thing and we could take care of it ourselves and be done with it.

You symptoms are indicative of clogged jets. Tons of Ninja 250 owner/riders have had the same issue and all have had to clean the carbs manually. There's no way around it.

However, I do understand not wanting to remove the carbs and that's totally up to you. Personally, I'm not a big fan of Seafoam. Sort of over rated and overused IMO. Others swear by it, others do not.

If you use it, use the recommended dosage correctly and put it directly into the fuel tank only. Another alternative is Star Tron Fuel Treatment. Star Tron also makes a marine formula, however you don't have to worry about over dosing or getting the mix ratio wrong. You can buy it the same places you find SeaFoam. The stuff works great and has some real good reviews.

Star Tron seems to be a better fuel stabilizer and you can't over dose with it, like you can Sea Foam. Star Tron comes in three different concentrations for mixing convenience. There is a small engine, diesel and marine formula. I use the marine formula because it's more concentrated so you use less. An 8 fl. oz. bottle treats up to 128 gallons of gas. I've been using it in my cars, bike and lawn equipment.

Ummmmmm yeah thats not from sea foam. Thats someone who put something into the carbs cause seafoam doesnt enter through the intake. That looks like paint and to be honest that wouldnt enter the intake either because their is a filter in the way. Who ever put this picture up could have done a better job
