Hello all thinking of changing my coolant as the radiator needs replacing through it looking tired. Doesn't leak or need doing but I'm rather fussy and it's annoying me. However I can't seem to get an answer about coolant types? Keep seeing engine ice popping up, anyone have any experience, or any to avoid. Help and comments gladly received

Someone just recently recommend using Evan's waterless coolant.


And


I've been using and flushing with regular coolant for awhile now. But, I'm considering switching to this stuff next fluid change.

Consider this with engine ice...
It cools quicker while circulating, but also heats quicker while you're stopped. Running all engine ice during a hot day could put you at risk of over heating at a stop light, or in slow town traffic.
For me I've found my magical ratio is 5:1. 5 parts regular coolant to one part engine ice or a similar cooling supplement. It keeps temp about 20⁰ cooler while riding. And when I come to the stop, there's enough regular coolant that I don't have to worry about the temp spiking.
