I have it in my 76 gl1000 because it is pretty heavily modified (54rwhp to now at 91rwhp) and the bike ran hot and overheated when going down the highway in excess of 70mph. A custom radiator and many other mods to help keep it from overheating. The Evans waterless coolant is presented as helping to cool better when in fact my bike actually ran a bit hotter.
I called Evans and their tech/engineer said that was fairly normal that it may run slightly warmer but with less temperature variation. Don’t know what to think about it, I ended up finding that the chin spoiler I had added seemed to be inhibiting the air from going through the radiator at speed and causing the overheating.
I tend to go along with Ray’s assessment, the Evans is still in the G-Wing the temp is a bit warmer but there is less swing to it but i’ll say that if you need more coolant on the road you’re kinda screwed because you can’t just add some water. So i’d add that in that regard normal coolant that you can find anywhere is better. It’s a bit of an ordeal to change the G-Wing back so i’ve yet to do that. Anyway that’s my .02, hope it helps.
