Bardahl Permanent Coolant for Evo 290 2010

Recommended Posts

Hi All

Anybody recommend a place where I can get the Bardahl Permanent Coolant for the 2010 290 Evo? It's the recommended coolant and it seems to not be available in the UK.

Cheers

I did have a mooch and never came up with owt, hence the question on here... I never found the powerenhancer distributor though, so thanks for that, the issue seems to be with the magnesium casings, the coolant molecules vibrate and cause holes in the casing allowing outside water in, so any specific magnesium stable coolant will do the job according to Martin at MHB Motorcycles in Kirby Stephen, so I'll see what else is out there as well... thanks for your help...

Thanks dadof2, the bike had a pink fluid in it, which when I drained it, there were plenty of black floating pieces in it, so I'll have to keep an eye on the water pump now I guess, hopefully they are just goo generated over time as I suspect this bike hasn't seen a service in quite awhile...

I found the Bardahl stuff thanks to oni nou and his comment about the powerenhancer website, so it's on order. I think it's this one: http://www.powerenhancer.co.uk/bardahl-type-d-pink-anti-freeze-5-litre.html.

Bardahl do a good page with some info here: http://www.bardahl.nl/en/background/coolants/

Oddly none of them mention the word 'permanent' in their descriptions of the types of coolant, so that's a bit of a guess. the bike takes 600ml, so with 5ltrs I can flush it through a couple of times now anyway

Cheers for the help guys

Hi Oni Nou, I've been to Ebay 3 times now  and all I get is pages of K Seal permanent coolant leak sealant, even when I've tried variations of the description, so gave up. I have found something on Amazon at the moment which is a blue bottle with permanent on the label, so I've ordered that, it's from Italy as well, so maybe this is the only place to get it from.

I'll compare the two when they arrive. I have a use for the pink stuff if it's not right anyway so it's won't be wasted

Brilliant, thanks for your help and apologies for being a bit of a dunce about all this! I'd rather it was right from now on rather than whatever has gone on in the past with the bike...

 

Cheers
