decarbonising

Was reading through a few american sites. Many people swear by decarbonising an engine every year by using a product called "seafoam".
Have run my suzuki DT85 for years and never bothered doing this but thought I might have a go. Anyone tried this or recommend of a similar uk product?

RIBase
Redex. Apparently both are available in the US but Seafoam became the household name rather than Redex.

The other one to try is Quicksilver Powertune which you spray directly into the intakes.
