I haven't but many of my track friends have. It lowers your temps by a couple of degrees and tracks require it to run track days. However I always questioned its lubricating abilities as antifreeze not only prevents freezing,, overheating, but also lubricates the water pump. I never used it on my 600RR and my current vstar is air cooled. I never did track days either. My track days consist of running around I285 in Atlanta.

At about 40buck a gal. It's about 94-96% Propylene Glycol and has been used for years to replace
Ethylene Glycol(bad shit). Wont freeze, boils at 365F. It will do all they clam. May be cheaper
under other names for RV, and marine . O And they smoke-it in e-cig's .
Yes it's good shit.

Just make sure it's compatible with the vehicle you're putting it in. Lots of cars these days are very specific on the type of coolant needed. I'm not sure about bikes though.
