    which coolant? waterwetter?

    coolant comes in 2 type.

    1) premixed.
    2) concentrated.

    for 2), yes you have to add in water, usually the ratio is 1:1, water:coolant.

    For 1), just fill it up.

    I plan to use WaterWetter for my SP. What kind of flush should I use to flush my radiator? Must it be any special kind, or any flush will do?

    Anyway is anyone interested in sharing a bottle? I think one bottle can last until I go class 2 ah!

    well from wat i know flushing is to clear the radiator of scale or old glyco that is stuck in there after using e old coolant for a long time. i'm not veri sure..u can ask il4 to clarify.


    Just flushed my radiator using vinegar and distilled water and changed the glyco based coolant to waterwetter + distilled water. not easy man..took 2 hours...

    Tested the effects just now..not badz..temp is around 80-82c even tho i maintain a slow speed of 50km/h. On eways, it went down to 79c and not lower..well i guess the engine has its operating temp which is ard 79c and thus it cant go down any lower...

    will test it in afternoons to see if there is any difference anot.

    overall i'm happy with it..feels cooler..hee..maybe its psychological..

    Got drink herbal tea or not? Nowadays very heaty.

    think check coolant level first lar. Maybe not enuff of coolant and hence
    overheating. Either that, some part of your coolant system is giving u problem
    liao. could be head gasket, impeller not working, thermostat etc etc.

    hi all,

    just wanna know if anyone of u out there know where i can get a new radiator done out?
    not in those motor tiam, but a decent radiator repair shop that can build the radiator
    to your own specification.
    i've heard of copper made radiator been a better heat resistor material tobe made into radiator although silver is the best but it will cost a bomb to made it with.

    thanks

    similar to flush toilet ...

    Depend on what bike lah, a simple one as below :

    1. Find the coolant drain nut location and the radiator cap.
    2. Open the radiator cap, open the drain nut (without open the cap, the coolant flow out slow).

    3. Use running tap to the radiator and let it flow for a while.
    4. Cleaning the reservoir tank.
    5. Tighten back the drain nut.
    6. Pour in coolant to the raditor. (What type of coolant is up to you, can use ready-use, or you get the coolant to mix, 15%-20% coolant ratio to the pure/distilled water, or you can use waterwetter).

    7. Start the bike, throttle abit, off engine, pour in coolant again if the level drop. Repeat again until the coolant level maintain full.

    8. Close the radiator cap.
    9. Pour in coolant to the reserviour tank.

    they are actually the same thing... u check the content/wordings on the bottle of battery. u will find that it stated the fluid in there is distilled water.

    2001~04---> NSR-150SP(FT43**H), RXK(FD41**)
    2004~06--> CBR-400RRR(FN31**R), RXK
    2006~07 ---> CBR929RRY(FS35**C), RXK
    2007~10 --> CBR929RRY, Wave125R(FY74**P)
    2010~Present -> CBR1000RR10(FBE56**T), Wave125R

    No. Battery water and distilled water is totally different. Although some pple pour distilled water into batteries. It works as it dilutes the electrolyte but increasing the content letting it cover the metal plates in the battery. But its is not advisable as it shortens life spans of battery. I have come across many drivers and trainees in my office resorting to use distilled water for their batteries. This is not the right practice. Battery water can be purchased from any automobile shop. Do not use it if seal is broken. To test the usability, pour out a bit on the floor. Bubbles will immediately form with a &#39;sss&#39; sound as though its eating into the ground. If not then it fails.

    Battery water is commonly known as electrolyte. It is acidic and non potable. Even if it comes into contact with skin, you must wash it away. Else you&#39;ll start to itch. If fabric comes into contact, it will discolour and holes will start to appear.

    Distilled water in itself is pure water (H2O) There is no other particles inside. It is also potable. Distilled water is meant to mix with ethyleneglycol to form coolant.

    For more info do PM me.

    No. Battery water and distilled water is totally different. Although some pple pour distilled water into batteries. It works as it dilutes the electrolyte but increasing the content letting it cover the metal plates in the battery. But its is not advisable as it shortens life spans of battery. I have come across many drivers and trainees in my office resorting to use distilled water for their batteries. This is not the right practice. Battery water can be purchased from any automobile shop. Do not use it if seal is broken. To test the usability, pour out a bit on the floor. Bubbles will immediately form with a &#39;sss&#39; sound as though its eating into the ground. If not then it fails.

    Battery water is commonly known as electrolyte. It is acidic and non potable. Even if it comes into contact with skin, you must wash it away. Else you&#39;ll start to itch. If fabric comes into contact, it will discolour and holes will start to appear.

    Distilled water in itself is pure water (H2O) There is no other particles inside. It is also potable. Distilled water is meant to mix with ethyleneglycol to form coolant.

    For more info do PM me.

    juz imagine tat batt water mix wit coolent into the radiator...

    similar to flush toilet ...

    Depend on what bike lah, a simple one as below :

    1. Find the coolant drain nut location and the radiator cap.
    2. Open the radiator cap, open the drain nut (without open the cap, the coolant flow out slow).

    3. Use running tap to the radiator and let it flow for a while.
    4. Cleaning the reservoir tank.
    5. Tighten back the drain nut.
    6. Pour in coolant to the raditor. (What type of coolant is up to you, can use ready-use, or you get the coolant to mix, 15%-20% coolant ratio to the pure/distilled water, or you can use waterwetter).

    7. Start the bike, throttle abit, off engine, pour in coolant again if the level drop. Repeat again until the coolant level maintain full.

    8. Close the radiator cap.
    9. Pour in coolant to the reserviour tank.
    mayi know how to flush the coolent reservior tank?

    so u intend to flush the coolant reservoir only?
    or the whole cooling system?

    if coolant reservoir tank only......then u juz drain out whatever coolant u have in yr reservoir and take the whole reservoir out and slowly clean
    then after that put back and topup the reservoir

    i heard that waterwetter can add or top up to old coolant (used waterwetter) when the effect of the coolant have lowered isnt?

    Waterwetter + distilled water actually helps remove some deposits from the radiator system. But this onlie happens if your cooling system is neglected and full of deposits in the first place.

    Some time ago, i flushed the cooling system of my friend&#39;s bike. I flushed his cooling system twice with a 50:50 vinegar/water solution and finally top up with waterwetter. Though alot of gunk was removed from the flushing, apparently it did not remove all of it. Few days later, His bike experienced a loss of power and it easily overheats, spitting out coolant. Turned out his coolant pump is clogged with deposits. Another flush was done and that solved the problem.

    I would advice that if you just made the switch to waterwetter, monitor the level and condition of your coolant(color and the presence of any suspended material) closely. If there is any abnormality, do a second flush.

    For a proper flush I normally drain off the coolant and flush with tap water till the water runs clean, then took out the radiator to drain out the old coolant which might trap there. Also I will remove the reserve coolant reservoir and flush it. Finally assemble everyting and top up with waterwetter mixed with distilled water.

    Just found out from discovery channel today normal tap water, which have impurities in then will make it boil over, for distilled water it will not because all the impurities are rid from the water.

    Distilled water boil at 100C.
    Distilled water with Glycol boil at 115C.

    Try this, put a glass of tap water and one glass of distilled water in the microwave oven to boil.

    The tap water will bubble when reach 100 deg c and distilled water will not. Saw it on discovery chanel. The distilled water will continue to heat above 100 deg c, even w/o additional of any solution, the term is called latent heat, if I did not remember wrongly.

    One yr old bike shouldn&#39;t be too bad. My friend&#39;s bike is 6 yr old liao..

    I assume you hav made the switch to water wetter. So, if you dun encounter anything abnormal, just top up the reserve coolant reservoir to the appropriate level can liao.

    On normal circumstances, tap water will boil at a higher temperature than distilled water.

    The experiment you noted was on superheated water. You can superheat clean, still water to above its boiling point via minimizing nucleation sites(eg. hot spots, impurities and rough edges of container). This is why the experiment will use distilled water(no impurities), microwave(no hot spots) and glass container(very smooth surface).

    This kinda condition is impossible in a bike&#39;s cooling system

    anyway.....
