I try to run a dose if the Lucas Cleaner through my stuff every 3-4 tankfuls, big Lucas fan. That said, a lot of people are Seafoam fans which I believe is a more aggressive cleaner than the Lucas. The only thing I would add is that I personally would not store anything with it because I have had trouble multiple times with the fuel turning to a really hard to remove green jello throughout the fuel system.
That said, I mix up a cocktail pickle juice for storage that is Stabil, Marvel Mystery Oul & usually the Lucas fuel system cleaner and have never had any issue until I substituted the Seafoam for the Lucas,,,, resulting in the green jello. So it may just be a chemical reaction in my pickle juice, but I’ve never seen it with anything but when I used Seafoam.
So I’d have no issue in using just Seafoam so long as it’s not stored with it in the tank, and as said above run some kind of fuel cleaner for several tanks to see if that helps, and I’d recommend using something that’s rated for removing water which being your bike has obviously sat a bit is a possibility, maybe something like Heet. Also a set of spark-lugs won’t hurt and are a relatively inexpensive thing, but I suspect water in the fuel but new plugs certainly can’t hurt.
If an additive doesn’t improve things then you may have to remove the injectors and send them to someone who specializes in rebuilding & balancing injectors, hopefully somebody with some experience on that can weigh in... personally I think fuel additive/cleaner over a couple of tanks of fuel will probably sort things out. Keep us posted on how it goes.
