Coolant

Post by AndyC »



Has anybody had experience with wetter water type additives to make your bike run cooler ?? When I sit at idle for several minutes my bike gets a little warm, (gauge halfway). Makes me a little edgy so I thought I'd flush it according to the Feb article and when I refill add some wetter water stuff. Coments ??? Thanks AndyC

That behavior (getting warm at idle) is completely normal. As long as the fans are coming on, you have nothing to worry about.
