I've been running it in my 09' 990 for about 4 months. Hard to say it works any better than the standard coolant, I added a second fan and cooler temp sensor at the same time. With all the cooling mods the bike runs great in 105*+ weather.

I use Water Wetter in my KTM race bike and have never had a problem.
I also had it in my 950 KTM mixed with antifreeze with very good results on and offroad.
Engine Ice is a very good product... Shouldn't have any problems.

I do not yet use it in my (new to me) 950, but I do use it in my 450 dirt bike. It runs clean and I have never had a cooling related issue in all kinds of temps.

I will use it in the 950 when I flush it out this winter.

I've had run Engine Ice in my 950 for years but switched back to Yamaha coolant do to price. I couldn't tell any difference in cooling between the two coolants.

Can't tell a huge difference in coolants but like to run quality stuff in such an exspensive machine. I run it in both my bikes and never had an issue or gone above five bars even abusing the 950 in Baja. Like I said can't tell a difference but it's what I know and have ran so I say use it.

My local KTM dealer installed it ($45 cost). Of course I didn't want it and had just flushed and refilled the bike with new regular coolant. I guess expecting them to save the old coolant when they pull the clutch cover off and just reuse it is asking too much. Same with the oil, I got to pay for a new quart of Motorex.

Water Wetter in everything all the time. 450EXC, 990ADV, Dodge 2500, STi race car, VW TDI, and that is my current fleet...I love it. Run it with distilled water and a little anti-freeze if you live in cooler areas. I run it without in So Cal.

When you can buy it

Switched back to coolant when the water pump seal blow had to add water to get home don't have to many places that sell engine ice in country towns but coolant you can almost buy that at MacDonalds. With the second fan and lower temp switch haven't had any dramas

Sure. Use it.

I've been using it in my 525 and 530. It works.

eh. I use it and have used others including Harley branded coolant. I don't think it really makes a big difference. I think the fan switch that kicks the fan on sooner makes a bigger difference than the brand of coolant.
