I've been using EVENS water-less Coolant since i started riding and loved them. I just bought a new bottle of the same stuff and i'm comparing what both the old stuff looks like and the new stuff.
the dirty bottle and yellow coolant has been through two years of use. the clear stuff and clean bottle are brand new and never used.
It's pretty crazy to see how much dirt and abuse the old coolant has gone through.
At this point i'm wondering if it is still as strong as brand new coolant? or if it's damaged. EVENS says they will outlast your bike.
At the end of the day i'd rather that clear stuff going in my 450 rather then the yellow stuff :/
What do you guys think? Do you think it still stands up to brand new EVENS coolant or do you think it's lost some of it's touch?

After looking over a number of posts on the entire TT site, I decided to follow some advise regarding cheap m/c cleaners and try a bottle of SHOUT spray stain remover on the 06 TE 450. (This was after two pretty muddy rides).
I sprayed the bike off with a garden hose, getting the big dirt/mud chunks off...then soaked the entire bike with SHOUT. I let the cleaner soak for about 20 minutes and the results were spectacular. A simple light spray with the garden hose and it was clean as a whistle. Hubs, engine, plastics etc...it worked wonderfully and at 2 bucks a bottle I really recommend it. Plus it smells good. If you have not used it try it, you'll like it.
Also, here is a link to a pic and short video of the TE in action somewhere in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas.
