Does anybody know of a good product to clean the injectors? I can't get the engine to start on my Ninja and I suspect the injectors might be clogged or dirty.

I dunno. It should work. Hell, to decarbon a motor you can just mist water down the neck and let it soak in. Ya get the same effect I guess as using the Seafoam. I've never tried it, but the old race car drivers I know laugh when I talk about spending any kind of money on that project so...Prolly not the way to clean your injectors tho...

Hmmm, so mineral spirits, MEK, and Xylene(bolded) are all in there as well. All products you can find on the shelf in Home Depot...

Interesting that ALIPHATIC ISOCYANATE and the ethyl-3's are the most abundant ingredients. Now, I've got to find out what the hell N-BUTYL ACETATE is. sounds like nail polish remover.:rotflmao:

I`ve used Seafoam with killer results...
I`ve also used Berryman`s B-12 CHEMTOOL fuel treatment and inj. cleaner....Real strong shit...Removes moisture in the fuel also...With all the Methanol/ethanol in our fuels now and the way they attract moisture,ya really need some kind of treatment to keep it in check....Lucas is great too and has a topend lube to it also...

i would say pull your throttle bodies and take the injectors out and soak them for a day in seafoam. then put them back in with seafoam in tank and see if it gets any results. not sure which ninja you got but on a 12 it takes about 30 min to pull throttle bodies out
