  • Engine ice

    I've never heard of this stuff before but have seen it mentioned here a couple of times. However, after roasting my ass off yesterday I've decided that I need to look at some way to keep my tlr cooler. What's the general opinion of engine ice and where can I pick some up? Thanks again.

    If it doesn't make it go fast, stop fast or turn fast, it doesn't have it.

    I believe engine ice is like wetterwater or an alternative to antifreeze. Mostly used for track situations and not for cooling the bike much better.

    But what do I know?
    I'm so slow I think I'm first!!!!!!!

      I would recommend putting on a manual fan switch (if you don't already have one) from TLcraz1. I wasn't sure if it was heating up on you in traffic or out 'busting a move'.
      Be good, and if you can't be good...be really, REALLY bad!!

        I've been running it for the last few months. I don't believe it's been running any cooler than normal antifreeze. Granted different situations cause different temps readings.

        I went with it because of the 'Track' usability... Thatís now gone for some/most of the clubs (NESBA in my area), though water and Water Wetter is still allowed. It is nice that itís a premix so you donít add water; downer is that the radiator capacity is more than one bottle.

          I have TLCRAZ1's fan switch, it's easy to instal and works great. I also have Engine Ice. I haven't had much time to get a good feel for Engine Ice, but the temp comes down alot faster and takes longer to warm up from what I've seen.

            Living in FL, my bike would normally run around 210-220 sitting in traffic. I went to engine ice about a year ago, and have never seen the bike go past 205.
