Has anyone tried Motul's MoCool in their F4

Hey Guys and Gals
I do a bit of town riding on my 2013 F4 1000 and in the heat of Queensland, Australia it constantly runs hot....
Has anyone tried running Motul's "MoCool" radiator coolant in their bike and did it make a difference?
Thanks for all replies
Clay

I use it in my Brutale and it works really well. No issues with overheating. Better yet, the bottle lasts thru quite a few coolant changes.

Cheers, Simon

What do you consider "hot". Do you get flashing temp readings of over 110 C and coolant pushing out the overflow?

95 ~ 105 C is a normal running temp for a modern sport bike.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Temp gauge runs two bars over the normal running temp and the fans are constantly on when riding around town.....

sounds about normal, the MVs are not meant to be ridden in town / stop-and-go traffic?

Yes but it is my mode of transport at the moment and was just wondering if MoCool would help it run cooler

Take of the fairings for in-town riding. That will help more than anything else.

Donít think that changing the coolant will reduce one or two bars.
Two bars above that line is the normal as per manual.
I usually let the bike warm up to that at idle before going for a ride. Also it usually donít get bellow that after riding a few blocks in urban areas.
Mine is a 2012. I just never thought this to be an issue as fans only comes on with those 2 bars.

The brutale 990R does not have the temp read out, only a gauge. But with the mocool product i have only once seen it go over the middle bar, and only then 1 step up from there. And this is slow town riding in near 30 degree heat.

Note: Using the mocool reduced it by one bar i seem to remember.
