Normally I'd call this stuff Snakeoil and avoid it as un necessary. But because the EX has those tiny holes in the Pilot jets that just love to plug up, I would say go for it. It might just keep them open. However I don't mean to imply that it might be a fix for plugged pilots.

The 12 Gallon bottle is $10, so I figure that should last the small EX tank at least three cleanings. Chevron says to use the cleaner every 3K miles or something like that. For $10 I think its worth a try.

As far as I know yes, but I’m just guessing based on the fact that I got a new 2005 500R. I have had the shop take care of all the maintenance since I have no garage.
