Probably is, just different dye in the HD brand for re-branding purposes.I plan to use Peak Lifetime 50/50. It's supposedly the same as the HD coolant, just rebranded.
Oh I know. That's why I'm doing a coolant flush on my 13 NRS next weekend. Actually doing ALL the fluids.Probably is, just different dye in the HD brand for re-branding purposes.I plan to use Peak Lifetime 50/50. It's supposedly the same as the HD coolant, just rebranded.
Just remember life time really doesn't mean life time. Mind you, my crappy Hyundai Accent has 11 year old antifreeze in it. My bike, 2 years I swap it out to keep the corrosion at bay. Don't care about the car, obviously, so lifetime might apply here , LOL.
I just went by the method in the service manual. Make sure you do it while the engine is COOL. Hot coolant spraying all over you is not a good thing.Wondering what process you use to flush and fill.
I did it when I first got mine 2.5 years ago.
I pulled front cylinder drain plug as well as opening the left side lower butterfly drain screw.
I'm aware of the top pipe vent/fill screw in the right side of airbox bottom
Do You drain and fill with distilled water and run that up to temp and drop it before you
fill with new fluid? Distilled water and vinegar?
By the way, the capacity is 2.5 QUARTS, not gallons. So unless you're flushing it three times, you would be good with just 3 quarts of the HD stuff, or 1 gallon of the auto parts stuff.I want to do a coolant flush n change on a 07 vrscaw. I figured I would pick up 2 gallons of hd premixed antifreeze and do it up. But they only sell the schtuff $11 quart bottles. Any suggestions on what coolant should be used?
Think I'd forget the vinegar part. Just distilled water.Thanks -
Just FYI - I was interested in Engine Ice but is is pricey and I all ready have a jug of Peak Global Lifetime (Same as HD Stuff) .
So I am going to mix some water wetter in with that and see if it runs a little cooler.
I will drain the old stuff, fill with Distilled water and a little vinegar, run that up and drain it and then add the Peak global 50/0 with some water wetter,.
