Talk to me about water wetter.....

auto zone and the like should carry it. What I would like to know........can ya run it all summer long on the street w/o doing any damage to the WP and other internals?

Of course I'd change it back to anti-freeze to park it in the winter.

I even run it in my cars if that say's anything. I've run it in everything that is liquid cooled and never had one problem.

It's an additive to coolant. Used to help the bike run cooler. And yes, pay the extra $2 to get distilled water. Tap water WILL wear a hole through an aluminum radiator. Goes for your car/truck as well.
