Default Good Info For Water Cooled Bikes like the Scout

Waterless coolant that lasts dang near forever.


Evans Waterless Engine Coolants - FAQs - frequently asked questions

Obviously great for cars too. If you are like me and keep a car for a long time; this might just be the ticket. Expensive one time but then forget about it.

Sounds like great stuff. I'll have to try and track some down locally. The coolant I have now in my car is good for 100000 or ten years so I'll look into the specs and reviews on this soon.

Not all those who wander are lost.

I've heard of it for a few years now but have never seen it on the shelves.

I use water wetter in my track bike. On race tracks you can't use coolant, just water or this kind of stuff.
I run it in all my off-road stuff. It's been around for a long time.

Hmm seems as though it would be the ticket in my MX bikes and RZR. Thanks for sharing.

if you check out their web site you can learn about it. their earlier "coolants" had some special requirements, + there were different "coolants" for different applications as well. thought about for my problematic 56 chev with higher output 360 engine + poor airflow while setting or driving in traffic, but sold the car + never tried it

Beware some coolants melt gaskets, got the word from a mechanic the other day.
The very best coolant is the blue stuff that Mercedes Benz specify, not cheap but the best never is.
