All of the trackday organizations I ride with Cornerspeed, PRE, Roger Lyle, STT require anti-freeze to be replaced with water or equivalent in the intermediate and advanced classes.

I can't believe there isn't also a drain somewhere on the motor....

Agreed, my old bike had a drain bolt at the water pump. The position this drain is in doesn't get all the anti-freeze out. You need to flush the system a few times at first.

There is no noticeable improvement, I didn’t measure with a thermometer. With my last bike (2007 R6) the dash board had an actual read-out for temp and with water + water wetter the temps were approx 10-15 deg Celsius lower

How many gallons/liters of coolant (be it water wetter solution or regular glycol stuff) does it take to completely flush V4 system?

Thanks.
