I was gonna switch to Engine Ice this year but I found out that it won't mix with regular coolant and didn't feel like fully flushing the entire system. I used regular old Spectro coolant and the bike's running a lot cooler.

Water Wetter now markets a coolant as well as an additive. I would assume their coolant contains their additive. I added Water Wetter to regular coolant and saw an immediate running temperature drop. When it came time to change out the coolant (before WW's new product hit the shelves at Cycle Gear), I went with Engine Ice. Temps are still held lower than with standard coolant, so either product seems to do the trick. The Water Wetter additive was originally for track use where actual water must be used in place of Glycol-based coolant, which is slicker than owlshit when spilled on pavement. It works by breaking down the surface tension of water (or coolant) so the liquid can absorb and transfer more heat away from the water jackets to the radiator.

running engine ice, seems to be okay for me. i did fan mods at the same time, so i can't speak on it alone as far as stating dropping in temps.

In my drag car engine ice did nothing. Water wetter dropped my temps about 18 degrees. Im anxious to try their coolant.

I live down in WAY southern california in the Imperial valley and during the summer with stock coolant my bike would hit 215 while running 80-90 mph on the interstate while its 110-115 outside. Now with engine ice my bike says 180-185 during same conditions. In stop in go traffic it will get up to 210-212 but prior it would hit 230+

so in my experience Engine ice is a must if you live in the hott desert!

water wetter dropped my temps by about 15 degrees in the bike and when i put it in my car it was about 25 degrees. I dunno what that stuff is but it definitely works.
