Any reason to ever run coolant if the bike is never exposed to freezing temps? Gonna be going to a lot of track days this summer and don't wanna have to swap back and forth all the time.

Antifreeze tends to raise the boiling point of the mixture. Though a 50/50 mix only raises it by about 10c from 100c (distilled water only) to 110c. Still something to think about. The actual amount will vary on the antifreeze used but the fact remains that the boiling point is raised.

You don't want to run straight water - coolant both acts as lubrication for the water pump and keeps the aluminum from oxidizing. Just having water in there makes the pump wear faster and you risk having parts corrode.

I would go with Water Wetter if the bike is never exposed to freezing temperatures. It's race-legal and has all the benefits of coolant except it's not frost proof. A 12 oz bottle costs $16.99 but is concentrated and enough for 3-4 gallons of distilled water so it will last a long time.

Thanks for the link Moe.... I never knew about this stuff! Might have to give it a try..... it looks like it has freeze protection up to -40F. I've been running Engine Ice for quite awhile now
