if you do that make sure you wire it up right... wouldnt want to wire it backwards and blow hot air from your engine onto the radiator

You could always just use distilled water with cap full or 2 of water wetter.

purple ice is good for aluminum as well as water wetter. I've noticed my bike run alot cooler with a cap full of either one and the rest distiled water. if you're street riding with either one i would suggest running like a cup full of regular coolant to keep the scale and crude from forming. if not i would flush that system every 2 months with preston radiator flush.

I have the fan kick on for the first time the other day! It is running fine! What was confusing me is that the Honda is set on C while the gixxer is set to F!

Change to a 100% Propylene Glycol coolant and never have to worry about you coolant system or temperatures ever again.
