I was informed that Engine Ice was never proven to lower the running temp.
I switched to Engine Ice to test the hype myself, no difference in the temp.
Only advantage is that it's pre-mixed.

After reading numerous review articles, I came to the conclusion that Engine Ice works well in cold weather and distilled H2O/water wetter for hot climates.

Heath, get the Supercool. It's deionized water and water wetter already mixed. Cycle gear has it. I run it and have had good results.

Some of the track day organizations require water wetter or other non-glycol based coolant for the advanced group. Since we really don't have freezing weather in Houston, it's a great idea to switch over for the serious track guys and spirited street rider. Radiator punctures are very common on some of the more spirited fayetteville and 3090 rides. The last thing y'all want is a high side due to your own fluid or taking out somebody following you with antifreeze spraying all over the ground.

Engine Ice, unless your running the track and not letting your bike near freezing temps, then run water wetter and some distilled. and yes as rare as it is we do see freezing temps every year, so that would mean you must drain your coolant before every winter.

Only if you leave your bike outside. If in a garage, you will be fine.

I like water wetter, distilled water, and a quart of non-glycol anti freeze.. works pretty well for year round in our climate

water wetter. And my radiator took a rock at ECR yesterday, mid session. Glad I had BOTH water wetter and a lower race belly to catch fluid. I am sure the people around me appreciated it as well.
