Any guide to DIY change coolant for r15 v2 ? Much appreciated
Just want to share my experience of flushing my CB400 coolant to Toyota Super long life. So far so good . But it brings me to another area of concern. Does anyone know how to test coolant tempurature sensor ? And for CB400 how to test the overheat light whether it works or not ?

interested party , do PM me..
Does anyone has experience with Maxima's Cool Aide? It's supposed to be a "high performance" coolant. Main "drawback" is that it doesn't have anti-freeze properties - which is a non-issue in Singapore and this part of the world.
My bike's coolant change is due soon, and am considering between this and Engine Ice - the latter cost almost twice as much.
and with the cool aide, i experienced exactly what i mentioned before:
the following should be actual symptoms that ur new brand of coolant is better than previous:
1) when stationary, temp gauge rises faster and higher. because the new coolant is more efficient carrying heat to radiator. it carry more heat, and faster, temp rise faster and higher.
2) when moving or when radiator fan kick in, temp gauge drops faster and lower. because the better coolant more efficient at 'throwing away' heat to passing air.
the feel of hot air from radiator to your thighs should match the description above. stationary should be even worse feeling because its throwing more hot air than before. once you move, when the first blast of hot air go thru again u shd feel worse; but after a short while of cruising it feels cooler than before because it throws away the heat more quickly.
It's true: it's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than to ride a fast bike slow. Admittedly, though... It is MOST fun to ride a fast bike fast!
Cool! (No pun intended) Thanks!
