HOLY CRAP!!! Need help

Ok so yesterday I finally got my 03 rr out. They said they put a 07 radiator fan combo on it to have better cooling. They said they also added 100% coolant. No water. I like hmmm. I know when it just coolant it can foam up and not cool when it gets hot. Also it is very corrosive just by itself. So what should I do. Souls I leave it as is. Or immediately flush my system and put like engine ice in it. Plz HELP. I don't want any more damage to my baby

Uh what kind of bs were you fed, by who?

The 07 fan won't even mount...

And your coolant shoul be 50/50 distiller water antifreeze the green stuff is to stop from freezing and lubricate the water is the cooling part....

dont know where you live, but im in the south where its warm most of the time, i use water wetter + water. But even so, i wouldnt use more antifreeze than it required to go below 0. i think the coldest day on record for my town is something around 10.

I live in dallas Texas. And yeah I was thinking the same thing. Hmm yeah the water is the thing that cools the bike not the coolant itself

water-wetter is pink and is allowed for track days and such because its not glycol based, it has NO freeze protection over regular water.

engine ice has glycol in it and is just expensive anti-freeze. its good down to like -30.

if you leave your bike outside in winter, id use something that has a little freeze protection.

To be clear

The difference between normal antifreeze and engine is is the type of glycol ... Normal antifreeze is ethylene glycol based EI is PROPYLENE glycol based

Water wetter and water mix can be made winter safe with smart use of a hydromemeter and addition of antifreeze and will have minimal impact on cooling benefits
