Re: water wetter (Jamie_Ducati)

It's better then staright water as it helps with cooling. Plus if you crash and it leaks on the track, it's not slippery like antifreeze.

Re: water wetter (viper1)

The wetting in Water Wetter refers, did I say reefer? never mind, to breaking the surface tension of straight water I beleive. It provides a better transfer of heat from the engine to the coolant. It is also said, according to the bottle, to lubricate the water pump and the seals.

Re: water wetter (Jamie_Ducati)

Water Wetter = not as difficult to clean from track surface if it spills on same.

Better cooling = probably from the water with no anti-freeze versus the water wetter. My bike runs about 10 degrees cooler with water wetter...but it still doesn't help the back of my legs at a long stop light.
