wait, did you flush the coolant and replace with a mix of WW and anti-freeze ? or did you just open the cap and add WW to the mix that was already there?

I've run WW in all of my bikes, I think it's the best...however, I run it straight with Water...NO Antifreeze. (bike is Garage'd in the winter)
What you will notice with Water+WW, is the temps can rise faster, as you may be noticing already, BUT they also FALL faster once you get moving/air and they will stay lower than using Antrifreeze.

You may not have a problem at all...

Check your reservoir regularly however...make sure it's not low or decreasing. As ppl have noted, there's all kinds of pockets in the engine and those will fill up with use and then it will take coolant from the reservoir.

Seeking experience based advice

Hi Folks,
Further to modifying radiators I am also looking into using additive/special coolant to help keep operating temperatures down. In fact, I already added MoCool but haven't noticed much improvement.
Other two terms I keep hearing are "Engine Ice" and "Water Wetter".
My first question: are those brand names? Or are there several versions of each with potentially different specs?
And my other question: Is there anybody who can actually confirm by experience that any of these products yield noticeable improvement?
Thanks in advance for sharing any experience that leads closer to deciding which way to go (if at all).

Water Wetter is an additive. Super Cool is a product that includes Water Wetter in it. Here's a link

I've dropped about 10 degrees in operating temp switching out the OEM coolant to SuperCool w/WW

Thanks!
Is that 10 degrees Fahrenheit? Or Celsius?
I need to find out how to get this as Amazon won't ship to my country... And a gallon of this pink stuff might blow fuses at the airport checks :-)

I have my dash set to F. However it doesn't make a difference, 10 degrees is 10 degrees.

One thing I've noticed about the new fluids is the more the engine runs the cooler it gets. When I come to a stop light on a hot day it will still climb to 208F-212F, but once i get going again it drops down quickly.

That later bit does not surprise me :-)
10 F at around 212 is 6 Celsius. But would go for it if only I could source it.
