Liquid cooled

Recommended Posts

I am new to liquid cooled bikes. Ive always had an air cooled bike and i just bought an CRF250r which is liquid cooled. Fill me in on information about this. Do you change the liquid? Just keep adding to it? How to know when the bike is overheating? Etc.

Change it every 150 hrs, use a pre mixed coolant that's mixed 50/50 water and antifreeze. Water cooled bikes don't usually overheat as easy as air cooled bikes depending on some variables. Idrk of any signs that it'll starting to overheat, maybe the radiator cap will fly, the bike will have sluggish acceleration, or just shut down. You'll be sure when pistons start flying tho, hopefully not!;)

just dont use the "extened life" coolant....not that it isnt good, but if you need to top off, it cant be mixed with others

 

i kinda like the idea of the ecofriendly propylene glycol stuff....but i dont run it myself....i also dont ride in any protected forest or special places that i worry about the ecology
