A pain in the ass for sure but I bet it was worth the peace of mind.
I just hate flushing everything back out come spring for the track. Guess thats easier than replacing a motor though.motomummy said:use anti-freezeit's there for a reason
Some tracks allow it, some dont. Miller doesnt allow anything but water wetter...even for trackdays.motomummy said:engine ice is track legal. Last i knew anyway...
yeah it just depends on the org and/or the track. Plus you dont want to mess up the entire track for others if you do wreck...keep it water + water wetterTrackStar1 said:Some tracks allow it, some dont. Miller doesnt allow anything but water wetter...even for trackdays.
I'll just run the heaters, gives me good time in the garage.

Trackstar - Might just have to bite the bullet and use antifreeze in the winter for peace of mind. Gotta flush it anyways for a new season
Trust me I know hwo you feel.TrackStar1 said:True!
Spent some good time in the garage tonight. Put fresh Rotella in the bike. Put new brake fluid in and bled everything through. Ran her for a bit just to ease my paranoid mind. Tomorrow is going to be SET valve removal and PAIR bypass action. Then I need to get tires mounted so I can put new gearing and chain (bumping to a 190 rear). Gotta pull forks and ship them off to RaceTech, new Elka shock should be here soon. Damn...I got some work to do.
I make it a point to flush the system with anti-freeze at the end and then the following Spring fill with H20 and Water Wedder. Cracking a block in the Winter from only having Wedder inside is a scary proposition..flounder said:Engine Ice is legal for track days but some racing organizations will not allow it. If your bike is strictly a track bike, you should just drain it completely during the winter and then you dont have to worry about anything.
