I may have some rust or something in my gas tank that was shaken loose yesterday and have gone into my carburetors. Not 100% sure, but the engine would sometimes run like it's misfiring, juuuusssttt a little bit, feeling like it was trying to suck gas but not getting any i.e. run rough, and then it would be ok for a bit, and then feel rough...even at high RPMs. It's not a big thing, I still get power, but I notice this compared to before the 'rust' was shaken loose.
This leads me to infer that I have to clean a carb. I just had a full carb clean done two weeks ago, so I wonder... would using the carburetor additive that you can get at a shop/Canadian Tire actually work? Does it dissolve rust? Can you suggest a type and what to expect with it? I know some mechanics suggest it for cars, but about about for our bikes?
I'd like to give it a try and see if it clears off on its own.
