Plenty of google evidence of Engine Ice boiling.

The main benefit is that it's base is Propylene Glycol which is much safer for plants & animals than the more common Ethylene Glycol.

I prefer to keep plants & animals out of my coolant system anyway.

Like Hairy said, the best fluid for heat transfer in your cooling system is 100% H2O, but it freeze's on you southerners and aids corrosion

Some clever fckers in lab coats actually tested water vs glycol mixes here

...now, back to drooling over pics of the 2020 unTunablePumpkinIxperience

Seeing that that's a GP model with high comp head I'd be almost willing to bet that it's running poorly due to poor CC/squish & more than likely a bit lean/pinging/detonating etc causing it to run hot.

Or he's the only bloke that had a crack at the gnarly hill.....

Gypsy I do admire your passion for KTM's, I hope you get a nice discount on your bikes for all the keyboard battles you've had

Rode all the 20 model huskys at the husky ride day at wildwood. All bikes were a decent improvement on previous years. The 150i wasn't there unfortunately as they arrived a bit late. Nearly 50 are now here so they will get snapped up quickly. 450 was also absent but the tx300i was there.
Test track was pretty flat and easy so hard to give a proper report but they all felt good and all different with their own personalitys. Linkage tracks awesome handles excellent.
