    Antifreeze

    Was woundering what type of coolant people are running after they change out thermostats. Just purchased a rotax 160 and was woundering which type or if there is any special coolant that people are running...

    I changed my thermostat yesterday and put the original coolant back in it because it only has 9 hours on it. I ran mine a little and pulled the seat off to check for leaks. You can tell the difference in heat and my rpms went from 8050 to 8100.

    I was planning on putting water wetter in this week. You have to change it out before winter though if the ski is going to be in a frozen atmosphere...
