I think they stocking Maxima Cool-Aide now. Engine Ice is anti freeze, not optimal for tropical climate.

nope, it's not an anti freeze. In fact it will work perfect in out climate. It has been tested in race bikes (motocross) to lower operating temp, also some street buike in hot climate.

Engine Ice Hi-Performance Coolant is biodegradable, phosphate free & non-toxic; while reducing operating race temperatures by as much as 50°F and effectively keeping boil over temperatures to 256 °F or less and freeze-up protection to -27° F.

 

Engine Ice Hi-Performance Coolant tm utilizes a base fluid called Propylene Glycol. This base fluid has been proven to be relatively harmless to plants, animals and the environment, while being an excellent base fluid for an engine coolant. We take this non-toxic base, along with various inhibitors and dilute it with the most pure water possible, Deionized Water.

For the simple reason that it is anti freeze, hence containing propylene glycol, it will never perform as well as water base like Cool-Aide in terms of cooling.

Thanks for the info TeePeePhobe. I'm looking for Silicate free coolant like Engine Ice. Yes water base should works better. I'll check for more info on it. Thanks again.

One thing bad about WW is the smell, used to change coolant on my S4. The smell is like earthworm mixed with water and can last for few days if u touched it...OUch!!!

have not been able to do a direct comparison as i used ww for my S4 and MCA for my FZ1...

 

comparing individually, they are both able to give a good drop of temp compare to stock coolant...

 

but i just like to say this for the record... the coolant is only part of the actual effect... the other half of the equation is on the skill and thoroughness of the mech changing your coolant...

Not very sure the exact price, but places like Bikeworkz, Racewerks and Planet are very competitively priced for their coolant change with Cool Aide.
