    Would not matter one way or the other. Your bike is fuel injected, no carb to clean. It's your money burn it however you like, but Ride.
    Why not seize the pleasure at once? -- How often is happiness destroyed by preparation, and foolish planning? Just do it. Shut the frunk up and Ride !!!!!!!!!!

    Doesn't Lucus clean the fuel injectors as well?

    I'm not going to weight in one way or the other but I used to hang out on a couple sport bike forums and have seen this conversation before. One comment I saw more often or not was not to use it unit the bike had quite a few miles. Like over 10,000. I cannot vouche for that. Just something I read.

    Lucas is forumated for both carburated or fuel injected. I have never used it in a bike and probably never will.

    I think if you constantly use top tier fuel suppliers it will not make a difference. Its supposed to clean injectors and valves and is a "upper cylinder lubricant" which if i am not mistaken are some of the goals of the top tier fuel program.
    When ignorance is bliss, to be wise is folly.

    Luca cleans everything in the fuel system and treats corn (ethanol) fuel so it doesn't turn to water.

    I have used it for years on probably 30 bikes and it is great stuff.

    We have no idea of the source of our fuel today.

    It's my opinion fuel system additives are a waste of money. Instead buy brand name fuel from a busy station, use the bike alot, and store it with a full tank of gas. If the bike is going to sit idle a few months it [Lucas additive] might do some good as any fuel stabilizer would.

    A little clue. Every gas station in your town gets gas from the same refinery no mater what the name on the station. The refinery does not have higher quality for one and lower quality for another. For example if you live in Austin Texas your gas comes from the Koch refinery in Corpus Christi. They may throw in a few additives when they load the truck, but it is the same quality gas.

    Same here in Mobile, al. it's all BP gas. No matter what brand you buy BP is the only supplier here.
