Engine Coolant Question

About a month or more ago I read a post about a particular brand of engine coolant that's made in Switzerland, I think, but for the life of me I cannot find that post. And stupidly, I forgot to bookmark the manufacturer's web site. If anyone knows what the brand name is that I'm referring to please let me know. Could'a swore I bookmarked that..

Falco,

Is there some advantage to that coolant over water wetter or engine ice and others?

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.

speaking of this i havent noticed in all the posts about the overheating issue
whether using "engine ice" or one of the other coolants that supposed to be
better than regular prestone etc.... did this make a difference in your engine temp ? by the way i couldnt find coolant capacity in my owners manual - can
somebody tell me what is is ?

thanks

i use redline water wetter
while it does not prevent the overheating thing in traffic, it takes a noticably longer time to get hot and drops hot temps. down really quick once you get moving again. they got my money.

Italian outfit, Rubber, heat, grunting, and you fill the open hole for more?? What's not to love??

Just something I read about it somewhere gave me the impression it was a good quality product. It's both an anti-freeze and coolant. Now if I could only remember where I saw that info...

I don't know that it's better than Engine Ice, but it has an advantage over Water Wetter in that it is also an anti-freeze. Mind you, we don't have much freezing weather in Houston, but I like knowing my bike's protected, in case the global warming thing subsides and we head into another ice age like we had back in the 70's.

I remember that.
Both Time and Newsweek had cover stories predicting "the coming ice age" and warning us about global cooling.
