Instead of the usual oil thread how about a coolant thread?
What kind of coolant are you using and why?

Easy one. Any no silicates coolant made fro alum. will do. I use pentosin from local Napa.

I've been using Maxima Coolanol that comes 50/50 mix since I bought my 919 in '04.
I change it out every three years.

I plan to die young, as late as possible.

I used Honda motorcycle coolant but only before I found out you can use any silicate free stuff. I'm due to change at the end of the season and I'm going to the Honda car dealer for that Type2
