We all know our bikes run hot in the summer, especially in stop and go traffic. Is there a better coolant than the OEM that you can recommend.

Apparently, distilled water dissipates heat at a higher rate than antifreeze. The only drawback is that it freezes. I run distilled water and Redline Water Wetter.

pure water also has a lower boiling point than an antifreeze mixture (or water wetter)....even with the pressurization. pure water also doesn't have the anti-corrosion additives that antifreeze has, and also doesn't have additives in it to help lubricate the water pump.

i wouldn't recommend the use of pure water in a streetbike. for the track, it'll work fine.

water wetter and evans npg coolant seem to work well....
