Straight DISTILLED water works great. Add in a bit of Water Wetter if you like.

It should be ethylene glycol with anti corrosion inhibitors.Or you can use red-line water wetter and water 50/50. Just make sure that you drain the water wetter in the the winter if you are in a state that is cold.

Uh that 50/50 mix of Water Wetter seems a bit high. Also note that a 50/50 mix transfers heat less efficiently than one with a lesser amount of antifreeze. Typically dirt bikes are not going to see the cold of something you drive every day in the winter so untiless you live in an extreme cold environment antifreeze is not really necessary.

whatever you mix, just make sure you use distilled water.


If you use tap water you will end up with mineral deposits inside your cooling system.
