I run engine Ice as it is approved by the race organizations and it offers some protection from freezing where water and water wetter does not have any freeze protection but is approved for race use by the organizations.

These are both approved for track use because if it leaks it does not get slick like the regular antifreeze does because when regular antifreeze goes down it is just as bad as having oil on the track. Also if you put a hole in the radiator most of the time the liquid ends up on your rear tire and sometimes the front tire.

Exactly. Good information.

If you are going to use it for track use, call tech before you show. A few tracks haven't gotten the word or approved it for use on their specific track, and it's a hassle changing it trackside because they didn't know.

I've been using it in all three bikes, which all run warm. The worse is the 1040 motor in my FZR1000. After switching to Engine Ice the needle never touches the red. Prior to I would bury the needle and start to boil at long stoplights. About a 10-15 degree decrease.

To the two guys that said they use Water Wetter, does it really run that much cooler?
In florida heat, on the interstate 75 miles/day i went from 172-176 to 165-169. 6 or 7 degree difference. It never goes over 170 now on I-95. on surface roads, its harder to tell becasue stop and go traffic make my temps go all over the map. My only consistent measurement would be the highway driving.
