Last I checked Harleys were aircooled. How'd that work out for you?lol

Ice

I used engine ice in my previous exc 530 & 570 berg & while it's a good product I am not sure it does anything better or extra that a cheaper product may do. Basically if you have a over heating issue caused by whatever then engine ice is not going to fix it. Although some people claim it will help a engine run cooler when actually plain water is said to be the most efficient at exchanging heat but has obvious limitations in other areas.

Pretty damn good actually. How does being a total douche work out for you?

Last time I checked, Harley made a bike called a V-rod that is liquid cooled, but I am guessing the last time you checked up on Harleys was sometime prior to that model being made (2001 was the first year they were made in case you needed another point of reference). Maybe that suggests you should either freshen up your motorcycle knowledge more frequently or maybe just keep your snarky, ignorant comments to yourself.

I run Engine Ice in my 300 XCW and my 990 R. I can tell a difference, especially with the 300. It also helps with the big twin as she runs hot in the first place. Runs cooler for sure.

Tip: to gain the max cooling performance from Engine Ice it is important NOT to just drain your old coolant and then dump in Engine Ice. You should thoroughly flush the system with a 50/50 mix of distilled water and white vinegar. Run the engine twice with this mixture, then drain. Then after that flush with distilled water only until the vinegar smell is gone from the water draining out. Then fill with Engine Ice.
