We use Maxima Coolanol and Water Wetter at the shop on all of the street bikes with great results. Imo stay away from engine ice as it leaves deposits the will harm your cooling system when it breaks down.

And running a lower viscosity, chemical synthetic motorcycle oil will also lower temperatures such as https://www.amsoil.com/storefront/mct.aspx?zo=1181889 .

Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited can order all of these for you.

Really? This is the very first bad thing I've ever heard about Engine Ice (other than high cost). Can you detail further how you came to this conclusion?

3 different GSXR radiators that were destroyed. Several other bikes that initially ran cooler but over time developed issues. Upon disassembly we found a soapy residue.
The one thing all these bike had in common was the engine ice.

Wow that is serious. Were these all newer bikes with no known radiator issues prior? Sometimes people don't switch to Engine Ice until they are already having cooling issues. Just trying to rule out any pre-existing conditions. And I wonder if systems were completely and properly flushed prior to adding EI. EI warns strongly about the imcompatibility of standard coolants with EI. Any idea about the length of time these bikes had EI in them?

Reason I am jumping on this is I have containers of EI in my garage already for two of my bikes. Now having second thoughts.
