was thinking of switching from green stuff to water wetter or equivalent. any thoughts on this? the bike lives in my living room not to mention i live in central florida... no cold weather here. are the throttle bodies heated for some reason? i wouldn't think so, but ya never know.

you can run just water. make sure you addsomething to prevent corrosion and rust, and you might want to check into something to add to lubricate the water pump and internal seals.

You can run with less green stuff. Instead of 50/50, drop down to 25/75. You do want something to prevent corrosion and to lubricate the water pump.

The throttle body is not heated.

I have been running 20/80 and Water Wetter for almost a year. With the header ceramic coated and the primaries thermally wrapped (to below the oil cooler), the engine runs cooler, cools down quicker when run hard, and is more repeatable on the dyno.

I hope this helps.
