So i've been hearing wonders about Engine Ice, however, since I live in Panama, I cannot get this type of coolant. So I did a little research and found out that Engine Ice is a Propylene Glycol based coolant.

I went to a hardware store and indeed found a similar product made of Propylene Glycol. It is called Sierra, and it is manufactured by PEAK. The only difference is that you have to mix it with distilled water, but at the end you will have 2 gallons of coolant.



So I already flushed/refilled my bike with this coolant, and took er out for a spin. I noticed immediately that my engine ran about 8~10F cooler during the ride. Another thing is that I usually come home at about 225~230F (with my old Ethyl Glycol stuff). Today I came in at 210F.

Just wanted to share my experience and newly found tip!!! Take care folks.:D
