Default Fuel injector cleaner?

I just took apart my gas tank and cleaned out all the rust and relined it. Now I'm wondering if I can use a fuel injector cleaner with the first tank of gas to clean out the fuel system. I've never used any on a bike before and I just wanted to get some input before I try it, it was real pain to redo the tank and I don't want to mess it up. Thanks

1/3 of a can of Seafoam once a month should do it.

Most name brand fuels already have all the cleaners in them that you can use. Just stay away from the cheap stuff

Default Fuel injector cleaner

Read your sealer bottle. It will tell you if you can use a EFI cleaner.

Yea I know, I just wanted some extra protection. The lining in the tank was coming off pretty badly and I'm not sure how bad it might have messed things up. I want to get all that gunk cleaned out so I can have a smoother ride.

I had the tank on my 2000 v92sc cleaned and sealed by tri-city victory in utah this last summer, and on the second tank of gas... i added a full bottle of stp fuel inj cleaner. i'm on my 5 tank of gas now and no issues (yet)

I put about 1/2 a bottle of seafoam cleaner in and I've already noticed a difference. Hopefully after a few hundred miles all the little pieces of lining that came out will be cleaned out so the engine doesn't ride so rough.
