    Cool Fyi maintaining your ski

    I just wanted to tell everybody that you should be running some sort of fuel Injector cleaner in your ski. I personally run Lucas fuel injection and upper cylinder lubricant from Walmart. It's only 7-8$ for 32 oz.
    So many skis don't get ridden often enough to keep the fuel systems clean.
    So just to play it safe get some and run it thru.
    I've seen burnt pistons and cylinders because of clogged Injectors.
    I run it thru all the skis I get and I haven't had any fuel related failures.

    Rip on...

    I also like the LUCAS products but What do you think about the Seafoam brand?

    I've never used sea foam but I do have some riding buddys that use it.
    Only thing is I don't think its a Injector cleaner.
    I know the sea foam is more expensive than the Lucas product.

    Thanks for looking out for us. I was just at Walmart the other day picking up some Lucas spray on wax/polish and was thinking about if I should run some injector cleaner. Now I will for sure.

    Some people just don't know how to maintain there skis.
    Let them go pound sand...
    I've been doing the Lucas treatments on a few hundred skis.
    Never had a fuel related break down.
    I ride all the skis I get to make sure there 100% before selling them and most skis have bad gas from sitting.
    This stuff cleans the fuel systems out and after a tank of gas with 6-7oz of Lucas I just change plugs and there up for sale.
