how many bottle require 4 busa? the coolant must change after 18months?

I think you will need slightly more than a bottle of Premix for busa. Why don't you visit the above mentioned bikeshops, they should be able to charge you as a package that includes any top up required instead of buying 2 full bottles. It is best to change any coolant on a yearly basis. The 18 month is a deliberate endurance test.

Nope, coolant lifespan typically gauged with duration of use. Corrosion and the means to prevent it is an ongoing process regardless u ride the bike or not.

$18 for 1.9L Ready to Use. It should be enough for Super4. Go to a bike shop and pay them a little labour money. A good flush and cooling system bleeding is critical for best results.

i think maxima is good..

flushed on both of my bike..

X9 cannot really see the differences.

but for my other bike did notice a drop in temperture.

but the temperture rises very fast lor.

 

ok.just flush the coolant yesterday today when going to second link usually my temperture is around 82 in the afternoon to my shock on my way to second it reaches only 79 and lowest is 77. crusing speed is around 100km.

on my way back the temperature reaches 83 to 84 crusing speed is the same around 100km maybe it i rode the bike for sometime resulting in higher temperture.

 

overall will recommend maxima

Flushed my coolent today on my S4 using the normal one .. call castrol brand one 2 litre.. all for $20 bucks only .. green colour one.. so far not bad and better than the previous add many water one .. haha ----- Castrol coolent good ? next coolent change maybe go for better ones... how long can a coolent last for next change ? 1 year ?

Acceleration power is not important than a good perfect braking system to prevent an accident.
