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:2cents:

Never mind the evans..From what im seeing its a 50/50 deal if damage will be because of the excessive heat on seal and metal expansion..Ill stick with water and de ionized water..

Oh guys,dont forget that when you flush,use a 50/50 mix of viniger and de ionized water to..

Damn bro!! Didnt know you had cancer! Hope youre doin better and heal up completely!!! The exhaust is great!! Havent been riding much, just been busy and doing some mods, new fork seals and springs and a few others. Gonna get a tune real quick here but I need my valves serviced first. I think the map is a bit rich for me here but it still runs great!!!!
