Plutoline in mine, works well, keeps my temps low 80 normal riding and 95 hard woods, but I'm going to change this as the boiling point is 170 degrees, its only that I have the temp sensor that I'm still using it as I can see what my temps are.

Just steer clear of Evans waterless coolant, they advertise over 195 degrees boiling point will mean your engine will cook and probably seize before it ever boils over letting you know there's a problem, such as water pump failure etc, this is the same with the plutoline I'm using just to a little lesser extent.

I'm going to go back to Halfords pink, which always worked great, and was water-based so it has boil-over to indicate when its the engine is running hotter than it should be.

Have a look a The Workshop vids on Evans Waterless, Matt gives it a right slating and backs it up, water is pretty much the best conductor of getting heat away from the engine. Plutoline and Evans doesn't make it run any cooler, its just you don't get any boil-over or high pressures due to the high boiling point. The engines are designed by the manufacturer to run on normal water-based coolant, which do boil over at about 108 degrees.

each to their own I guess, never had a problem with Evans & the 350 does run cooler as gauge has shown,
