Exclamation Engine Ice anyone?

Well summer heat is approaching and was wondering if anybody has used "Engine Ice" on their bikes before to keep the temperature down during the hot summer days!

it's now on sale at cycle gear for $19 1/2 gallon!

If i remember right, Engine Ice on average keeps temps cooler than most every other brand. Quality stuff. Never had any overheating problems and i been using them since '04.

I've heard somewhere that they "CAN" give you a 4 to 8 degree drop, but cant speak for experience, some people I know said dont waste the money.

I have nothing to add, since my bike is aircooled...

, no need for popcorn. carry on.

Since we live near I would use Water Wetter. I used Engine Ice when I didn't go to the track, but had I known about Water Wetter before Engine Ice I would have used Water Wetter the whole time.

i use it in everything i own thats liquid cooled. it not only keeps it cooler, but it also conditions pump seals, etc. purple ice is good stuff too!

I wouldn't say that much but it doesnt have glycol in it. Thats what makes the coolant really slippery but also prevents it from evaporating more quickly and freezing.

Water Wetter wont be as slippery when spilled but freezes easier than engine ice. They both do a good job of cooler the engines though.

So since we live in a place where it does not freeze often I use Water Wetter because it benefits me more than Engine Ice and I also don't think CMRA lets you use Engine Ice.

when you guys switch from regular coolant to water wetter do you completely flush the system and add only distilled water and the water wetter or engine ice?
i read the directions on the back of the can and it said to drain radiator and fill with teh entire contents of the can and it was supposed to have a predetermined ratio of water wetter and glycol..
i just flushed the entire system a few times and only put distilled water with some of the water wetter.

You add water to Waer Wetter and I believe you just pour in the Engine Ice till the reservoir is full.

Anytime you change coolant you need to flush the system.
