I run standard coolant but I have been considered if I should try Engine Ice or similar.....
Engine Ice will not do anything for running any cooler....the name sounds like it would, but it won’t....it is merely marketing wizardry - the only real difference it’s chemical make up, being environmentally friendly....yes, that is it - you can call them directly and they will tell you that yourself (if you don’t believe me)

While I was searching for a "too much heat" solution myself I ended up calling them and discovered the truth

I also came across an article on thermodynamics (try google, you’ll find it) & how internal combustion Motorcyle engines are designed within defined parameters of engine heat - it quickly made me realize “not to worry” - maybe it will do the same for you
Thanks from youngR

I replaced the stock coolant with SuperCool with WaterWetter and have noticed a 10 degree drop in engine temp while riding - and that's the key... it's magic happens while the engine is revving, not sitting at idle. A couple degree cooler at idle. Great product!

Sounds interesting - water however is the best for transferring heat - WaterWetter is merely a lubricant for the water pump - there is however no denying your temperature guage - Engine Ice just won’t do what you’ve found SuperCool did for you

I ha e the MAC larger lower radiator which come with a fan cowling that makes it fit fine. I did not however install it....it’s still sitting in the box. I live in Saudi and track in Bahrain.

Before you ask why I didn’t install it I had my shoulder rebuilt and have been recovering for the last 3 months. If you want to give it a try I can sell it to you for $400 bucks as I will probably land up selling my bike this summer.

Pm me

On the cars I build we use water wetter on the one's that have limited cooling. It works. It's made to help heat transfer off the outside cylinder walls and hot spot's in the motor. Better transfer.
