Took my plastics off to trace down an oil leak and noticed that I have NO coolant in the bottle. What kind should I pour in? I searched on here AND online, and I do not have an owners manual
He lives in Milwaukee - water is out of the question. It just snowed a little bit North of him a few days ago. BikePilot's gotta good idea. I use Engine Ice but at the Cali Speedway today where it got to 70 degrees my GSXR1000 never got over 170 degrees as I ran it mostly when it was in the low 60's out.chopiesel said:coolant shmoolant.
just use water.
So do buses & tractors but I don't use products designed for them! Although I do fancy a knicker knob I saw on a bus' steering wheel when I was a kid.beet said:My bike has run well on reg car AF & oil for 50k . Cars have shafts & seals don't they.

JK beet. I've used Engine Ice for many years & it is good stuff. We run plenty of track days a year (heading out to the Cali Speedway for another one in about 20 minutes in fact) & we do not "hate" gycol based antifreeze. Then again at the events we run it's not a demolition derby & we have less than 10% of our crashes leave fluids on the track. However when people run fully synthetic motor oil & don't torque down their drain plugs & drop 4 qts of that stuff over 1.5 miles that's a different matter. That & riders who insist on running non vented Vortex gas caps but then don't screw them down before the ride out for a session & let them fly out on the track while they cover themselves with gasoline. Get that one every weekend now. :coocoo
