Todays lesson, apparantly injector cleaner has a shelf life
Chaulk this one up to experience or what not to do,
had a bottle of STP fuel injector cleaner in my Bushtec trailer,
don't really know how long it's been in there, could have been a year,
there were only a couple of ounces in it and I had a full tank of gas so I dumped it in the tank,
It started out alright but as my ride progressed I was experiencing spark knock while accelerating
mostly at low RPM, the bike just ran rough.
At 150 miles I fueled up with some premium (I always run regular)
and about 10-20 miles later "she" was back to her sweet running old self.
So y'all can learn from my stupidity, if it's old throw it away,
only "fresh" injector cleaner for me from now on.
