Hi, think my injectors could do with a clean - sometimes getting occassional misfire / vibration coming through floor boards, nothing drastic though. Can they be cleaned using an additive or is the only way to take them out and have them cleaned professionally - if so has anyone ever done this - any help most appreciated as it ain't in the manual! Thank you.

You can indeed use an additive to clean the injectors. Follow the mix ratio printed on the additives label.

I've had good results from Sea Foam in my lawn tractor, aircraft engine, and other small engines. Haven't needed to use it in my current bikes/trike. Lots of guys on the oil forum use it regularly.

Yeah, What BigBird said.

You can remove the right side floor skirt body panel. That will expose the ignition coil and wires. Give the works a good healthy spritz of WD-40. That will help purge any moisture from micro cracks in the coil and adjacent wires.

After the WD dries you can take the scoot out for a nice dry ride. And after everything is well warmed & dry you can return home & give the works a good spritz of Silicone spray. That will seal those micro cracks from moisture and most likely resolve your problem.

Just why Honda decided to locate the ignition coil in such a vulnerable location is beyond me. Being there getting hammered by all the roadside potholes and soaked with all the puddles seems like a less-than-wise decision.
