    Engine Coolant

    Just ran across this. Looks to be some excellent stuff for aluminum engines:

    www.EvansCooling.com/

    May have to copy and paste. If anyone is using this product, please post.

    Re: Engine Coolant

    First I've heard of this, might be well worth the cost.
    I do know that quite a few of the 2009 and newer Vulcan Voyager 1700 owners have used [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Cyclelogic-engine-high-performance-olant/dp/B00F3R2CGU/ref=sr_1_124?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1391275091&s r=1-124&keywords=engine+ice"]CycleLogic Engine Ice [/ame] to reduce the engine heat and lower running temps on their V-twins.

    Careful: some of those "coolants" do NOT prevent freezing ("AntiFreeze"). Water Wetter comes to mind.......not sure about Engine Ice or Evans.

    Re: Engine Coolant

    I know what you mean Mark, I've almost made mistakes before by making assumptions but the Devils Advocate in me has helped me many times by rethinking purchases and investigating details farther than just shelf labeling.

    Not sure about Water Wetter but here is the first line of info from the EngineIce website: Engine Ice Hi-Performance Coolant is biodegradable, phosphate free & non-toxic; typically reduces operating race temperatures and effectively keeping boil over temperatures to 256F or less and freeze-up protection to -26 F.

    No I have no ties to the company or any dealer, just know of some folks who use it and swear by it!

    Re: Engine Coolant

    I have used Engine Ice in all my water-cooled motorcycles.

    Great stuff!

    My ZX-14 was a hot beast, she would peg the coolant temp bar graph at stoplights on hot days. After I put Engine Ice in, she never pegged the graph again.

    Re: Engine Coolant

    I've debated with myself on using it on my 1200 but I'm not sure if it can be mixed with Prestone pre-mix or if it has to be used straight up alone.
    I haven't even checked yet as to the volume I need in mine (shows how anxious I am to get to work on it! ).

    Sounds like some good coolant for warmer areas where below freezing temps arent an issue.

    Engine Ice is good down to -26 degrees F.

    I never had a problem even when western Maryland was under 3 feet of snow and the temp was -10 F.

    It won't mix well with regular coolant, so you have to flush the coolant system. Best to pressure flush it, so you wash the old coolant out of the engine too.

    I've used http://www.royalpurpleconsumer.com/p...lant-additive/ on the Polaris quad year around and it mixes with antifreeze. Used to have a problem in summer temp low speed rock crawling. Purple Ice was recommended by friends i was riding with. No more having it overflow the resevoir bottle and then be low after it cooled off and the fan cycled noticeably less.

    I know of several people who have good results using Engine Ice in ATV's. I'm going to switch to it at the next coolant change!
