Mocool by Motul or Cool-Aide concentrate by Maxxima
Anybody used, and any feedback welcome
(not looking for water wetter or track stuff, just the type with additional cooling for additive to coolant)
Water! it works Really well.
Pure (as in No additives) works the best at cooling.. true.. wether you believe it or not.
Additives fight corrosion and freezing the max compromise mix of antifreeze is 50%. The less anti freeze the better the cooling.. but then corrosion can be an issue.
Water wetter is basically soap ...which reduces surface tension a wee bit and helping cooling an 'almost noticeable' amount. Others are "Designer" chemicals (with credibility stretching brochure babble) ..which I won't use.
But you can :-)
okay...thanks for the tips but they don't apply for my purposes.
I need to bring the rad temp down by about 15 degrees, and am waiting on an upgrade thermo switch. It brings the limit from 91 to 85 deg.
Already have the upgraded rad cap. Don't want to get a manual switch. I ride high rpm's and long rides, and getting stuck in shitty traffic at the end of a hot day is too much.
Both of these are compatible with antifreeze, which I prefer as I have an unheated garage in cold winters. Just wondering if anyone has actually used them, or I gotta go by the label's claims
Motul MoCOOL Coolant
For use in cooling systems under racing conditions to decrease engine operating temperature.
Top engine cooling additive
Reduce engine temperature by 30°F (15°C)
Outstanding thermal exchange
Concentrated cooling fluid
Engines run cooler by 30°F (15°C) :
Improves thermal exchange and engine cooling system efficiency.
Cooling system optimal protection against corrosion.
Recommended for magnesium, cast iron, aluminium alloys cases, brass copper, and bronze systems.
Water pump protection, avoid cavitation.
Anti corrosion and rust properties that remain during high temperature and ageing.
Low corrosion inhibitors
Seals, rubber pipes, and plastic parts friendly.
MOTUL MoCool is a concentrated cooling fluid that may be mixed with distillated water for immediate use as a coolant.
Mix with water at 5% (20:1) - Do not use pure product.
Can be mixed with most coolants monoethyleneglycol based.
Some racing regulations do not allow anything other than pure water, if in any doubt, check with organisation before using MoCool. Motul company cannot be involved in case of race disqualification while using MoCool inappropriately.
MoCool does not provide any antifreeze protection.
