What do you run in your bike now instead?
I got two jugs of Engine Ice for stupid cheap.... I flushed my coolant, and put engine ice in my 11' ZX10R. The thing runs fantastic with it in there, probably 10-15* F cooler than the green shit. I've also noticed that when sitting at stop lights in the Las Vegas heat, the bikes' temperature doesn't just go from about 180* - 230* really fast. It gradually rises, and then stays around 210-215* when its really hot out.
Now that the temps have dropped in the mornings, I'm on the hwy doing 80+ mph and the thing is dead stuck on 145* F. When I ride home, it hovers right at 165-170* tops.
