Coolant question.

Hey guys just curious what coolant you run in the V4. I was thinking of putting water wetter in just to keep it cooler. Any thoughts?

I’m in Southern California so I have used water wetter with distilled water for many of my bikes with great results and it is legal with all race and track orgs.

It almost never gets colder than 40 degrees here though so I don’t worry about it freezing. I now run engine ice in my V4 and it runs maybe 2 - 3 degrees cooler.

Have you guys used Motul MoCool? I read some good review about it.

I use Belray Moto chill racing coolant and have not had any issues at the track. I've been told water wetter degrades the seals on the water pump bearings but have not personally experienced it so take that for what it's worth.
Thanks from youngR
