Not in my bike... my Jeep. I would swear by it but it's not inexpensive. It reduces running temps significantly and allows you to wait longer between oil changes - provided you use a filter which is equally as good.

You're right.. that's something to look out for. Could cause problems for those running wet clutches..

for maximum coolant capability, straight water is the best. Maybe add redline water wetter. However does not give good corrosion resistance. I'll talk to ya later about coolant.

oil

I have used and still use royal purple oil in my 05 r1 and love it. It is 10 dollars a quart but it is worth it to me. The bike ran and idled smoother and shifted better. Mobil 1 makes a real good oil also for bikes.
