Why we are on the subject.... I have never had a over heating issue with my WR even though it is here in AZ. Anyone else ever overheat a WR? I am not concerned with mine.

I'm currently working on just such an article for Dirt Rider magazine. I can't give anything away yet, but there are products that work better than what came in your radiator from the factory.
Has anyone done any "real world" testing to determine if any of the numerous performance coolants or additives such as "ICE" truely lower engine temps in comparison to standard Eythlene Glycol?

I wish I could, but my confidentiality agreement (and professionalism) requires my silence until print date. I'll say this, though: don't believe the hype. The way some of these manufacturers test and rate their products and then market them is unbelievable. Some even try to extrapolate their results in cars and trucks onto motorcycles without doing any real testing on motorcycles. Also, if you're having overheating problems, the mechanical fix has shown to be more efficient than just replacing the liquid in your radiator. Can I be any more vague? Sorry, but I'm sure you smart guys can figure out what I mean by that. OK, boyeees enough!
come on Rick, you cant just get on here and tease us like that . Spill some beans man, spill some beans.
