Yes, its ok. Distilled water and water wetter will give you the best cooling but you need some anti-freeze or water soluable oil to keep everything lubed and non-corrosive.
Try 70% water to 30% anti-freeze with about 4oz of water wetter.
If your radiators ard painted (black) get some gasket remover that is ok for aluminum and use it to strip all the paint off, especially on the vanes.
Oh yeah, it will help to get rid of that little 2-smoke, buy yourself an "F", 250 or 426!

Everyone says you need to add antifreeze, well I beg to differ, 5 oz of Water Wetter and 1 gallon of distilled water should give you the best mix. This is the same mix I used on my Roadrace bike running 10 to 12 grand on the tach for 30 to 45 minutes at a time and it worked out real well.

Forgot to mention, Antifreeze is not allowed in roadracing !
