What is the best coolant to use

9 posts in this topic

It is proven to lower coolant temp. One of my friends that was famous for idling his 426 for to long at the gate has kept his bike from boiling over. I would be curious to now why not to use it! Learn something new everyday. Besides, I am a NW rider and it is not always scorching hot up here!

I have used engine ice in my last 2 bikes and have put it in my 05 450 and never had a problem with it. It does lower the temp. so that will help on a 4 stroke bike.

If a coolant is truly better at absorbing and transferring heat, compared with another less efficient coolant, it should be hotter entering the radiator, and cooler leaving the radiator than the baseline was, while the actual cylinder head temp is lower.
