Engine Ice does make a difference. It will allow for a better heat transfer then just regular anti-freeze. I bought my ZX14 in Oct of 2007. Didnt have any issue till spring came around. Kawasaki and all thier wisdom only put 1 small fan for that big engine. Well guess what in traffic that would over heat. I changed the regular antifreze by draining it, flushing it out with water then adding Engine Ice. My temp bars (zx14 doesnt have a temp #) have since never reach the top. So yes Engine Ice does work!! Will it lower your temp enough for you not to sweat? Keep dreaming

careful with water. It boils at 212 degrees fahrenheit and freezes at 32 degrees

As long as the radiator cap holds the proper pressure it won't boil. Yes, antifreeze will raise the boiling point when mixed with water but that isn't what keeps it from boiling in your cooling system, it's the pressure. The main purpose of antifreeze in the cooling system is to lubricate, prevent corrosion, and of course prevent freezing.

I wouldn't use water wetter in a street bike. Water wetter doesn't contain the anti corrosives that your average coolant does, so you will need to flush the system regularly.

Peak cooling efficiency is usually around 50mph at mid-to-lower-mid rpm since the engine is working within its torque band but not creating excessive heat from higher engine speeds, air flow is manageable and not choking the ducting.

Now if the system ran a different pressure along w the chemical in question maybe that would help the temperature. I'd make sure distilled water isnt recommended to preserve alluminium articles w the additive. Water heated by aluminium can cause oxydation that will clog up ports over extended periods.
What he said. Most often you will use distilled to prevent oxidation. Water is better at cooling an engine than glycol anything, but even distilled allows some oxidation, therefore you need some kind of additive to inhibit it. As for the products that claim better cooling ability than straight H2O, I can't advise. I likes the water wetter, personally.

Classic; Just make sure you let the bike cool down before "topping up."
