Engine ice ?

I just talked with a guy that said that you can mix the engine ice with the coolant that is in the bike. I just want to check with everyone else to see if it is true. I had it in my Busa but i drained the whole system and just used the engine ice.

Not sure of the answer but if your bike is low on fluid why not just drain it, flush it and refill it with ice? Pretty easy job to do

DO NOT add it to what's in your radiator already (unless there's engine ice in there already).....the directions VERY clearly state to drain and flush all the old coolant out before putting it in. i've had buddies do a half ass job of draining and they just added the ice......bikes started running hotter than normal. i think it's like $30-$40 per container and it usually takes about 2 of them sooooooo i'd take the time and do it as directed. just my

For your questions concerning Engine Ice http://www.engineice.cc/faq.html

It's Not denial, I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.
