Hello, I live in SW Florida and it gets hot and humid...bad. I just bought a '22 Duke 890R and was wondering what others use for coolant? Engine Ice has always been my "go to" brand. Any thought? Advice? Thank you, Jeff

Southeast USA typical summer day temp 35 to 37c with heat index in low 40's c. If these bike are tuned well temps no big deals
Yeah, I know the US quite well and where I live in Australia is very similar to the lower part of Florida. No issues with engine temps if the cooling system is properly maintained and no air trapped in the radiator

Had no issues with heat on my 2018 790D. Only seen 5 bars a couple of times even in 40ºC days.
My ex-Triumph was a different matter - That needed relief - I used DEI - as recommended by a tuner in the southern USA.

I use distilled water + Water Wetter. Works well and runs cooler than antifreeze. Also track day approved.
