OK as it stands right now in my FZR400 I've got just regular old blue-green coolant because I've been doing test-riding now and then, been having to get the radiator off to check the plugs a couple times and it's just been easier for me to refill with the BMW coolant I've got rather than going out and worrying about the proper stuff to be buying for my bike.
The FZR seems to be running good now, I don't anticipate having to get to the plugs again for a while so the radiator is going to be going back on soon.
It's going to be a track-only bike and I understand that going with something like Water Wetter has a few advantages over your standard 50/50 coolant water mix despite the fact that organizations like Nesba and such don't really require it except for upper levels.
Among the advantages I've found is that water has a greater heat capacity than a standard 50/50 coolant mix which means the engine actually runs cooler as a result... is this correct?
As I understand the only reason Water Wetter is even used is because it changes the surface tension of the water, allowing vapor bubbles in the cooling system to be popped easier... am I right on this also?
If there's something else I should be using for track riding feel free to tell me, as it stands though a bit of Water Wetter and distilled water looks like what I will be using, if only for the ease of cleaning up the mess if I were to spill.
I'm sure it's available at most fine establishments and says on the bottle how much to use, but how much do you all use for your cooling system's volume?
I think that's all the questions I have...
