Default fuel injector flush?

My dealer offered to perform this service for a mere $90. Now I am all for anything that will keep my mag running as best it can but I wonder how necessary it is for a 2005 with 15,000 miles. Anyone have this done or otherwise have an opinion?

Sounds pretty unnecessary to me unless you've put in bad gas or had other fuel issues at some point.

Just use a good grade of gas, most gasoline has fuel cleaners in it.

Iv'e been getting my injectors cleaned for years..every 3 years I have it done along with my other maintenance..My mechanic said instead of putting a bottle of stp or other brands of injector cleaners in my tank that I'd be better off doing it the right way..He disconnects the fuel line and runs the engine off the can of cleaner..16000 on magnum and next year I will be doing it for 1st time on it..Can't hurt it..not cheap but if you figure I do it every 3 years...it's peace of mind..Just my 2 cents...
