Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Evans Waterless Coolant

Post by jerryfudd on Fri 01 Jul 2016, 4:09 pm

Hi,

I'm considering doing this on the Street and because of the quantities the CB will get done too.

Has anyone considered or have any opinions on it?

I was going to be doing mine but in all honestly the garage did mine when they had the head off, a bottle of antifreeze is like £12 from halfrauds and then just mix it yourself rather than the expence of this. I think evens was going to be something like £80 to do it, not money I have to throw away on coolant.

Its not so bad when I factor in over two bikes, plus won't have to ever (apparently) do it again.

Plus loosing the expansion bottle is really appealing...... Rolling Eyes

The expansion bottles presence has never bothered me!

I'm on likely to flush the coolant once in every 5 years. It would take a long time to get value from the extra outlay, so I wouldn't bother.

Bothers me more so on the Street, the CB will just get it as a bonus...... same goes for the regularity of the coolant change.

The only real downside I've thought of so far is doing any kind of valve check would involve dumping the coolant which in this case would be a little bit more of a faff to keep it away from any kind of contamination so it can go back in.

I've considered it a while ago but haven't got passed the pondering stage as yet. 
Short of springing a leak, it should be the last coolant you need to buy as you can drain it from your bike when you sell it & put it in the next one.

The flush can also be used multiple times which'll reduce the cost a bit.

I've considered it, but haven't felt the need to do it. The idea is appealing though.

I would consider it if it meant that I didn't have to be bothered servicing the cooling system any more. There are other much cheaper coolants that are also life of the vehicle like the g13 coolant required by VW's. It does contain water though so I don't know about its anti corrosion capabilities. 

The only problem with life of the vehicle coolants is that if you need to replace a hose or a water pump etc. you lose the coolant and obviously have to replace it. I changed the coolant in my car with g13 and lost it all about 6 months later when I had to replace the EGR valve.

I've got a compressor although I think my blaster sidekick might be better for the job.
