    Non-Glycol Freeze Protecting Coolant?


    So with this upcoming race weekend, it looks like temps will be at/below freezing at night. I haven't flushed my radiator yet, and I want to avoid freezing my engine if possible. It looks like all the approved additives provide no freeze protection. How do people manage with water and the lower temps? Completely drain the system every night? Drain + Refill with coolant?

    60w drop light under the bike? I have an oil filled radiant heater in my garage that goes between the bikes when I'm worried about freezing temps and am too lazy to drop the water. Back to your original question - No, there isn't a track safe coolant that offers anti-freeze properties.
