]was thinking of getting my 1078rr Brutale ready for use over the winter and was thinking about anti freeze BUT on an episode of Wheeler Dealers they mentioned this stuff, waterless coolant, cools the engine much better than water, allows the engine to run up to -44 deg C and doesn't allow the engine/rads to corrode coz there is no oxygen in the system.
now two questions
1- has anybody used this stuff and
2- how much coolant is in the cooling system of a 1078rr Brutale

The Evans Waterless is excellent. I will be putting it in my bike. Used by many race teams and exotic car collectors. Many tracks require Glycol type coolants to be drained and use plain water or Evans. Nothing in their literature prohibits use in bikes and they are one of the race sponsors for KTM. http://www.evanscooling.com/

Cheers for that

Sounds great to me and I would give it a shot.
I might speak with my mechanic about it the next time my bike is in for service.
Thanks for the info about it, I never heard of it.

Donsy, if you go down this path I (and I dare say a few others on the forum) would probably be interested in the results.

Not allowed to use this on the track, at least not during a race weekend. But I'm keen to try it in the off season, to see the difference, but also to prevent corrosion in the motor.

That's a shame, as it's good gear..Although its expensive stuff compared to normal antifreeze solutions, it's guaranteed for the life of the motor once the system has been correctly replenished and won't need changing again, unless the cooling system gets contaminated..

It's a lot cheaper than an upgrade water pump and radiator for those who can't afford the outlay.
