    2012 Daytona 675R

    New guy from Dallas!

    Hello everyone! New to this forum, live in Dallas GA about 45 minutes west of Atlanta.

    Pretty active on Triumph675.net but wanted to be a part of a more local group as well.

    Currently ride a 2012 Triumph Daytona 675R but owned a Yamaha FZ6R before that.

    I mostly ride local with a few trips to the mountains every year. Hoping to try my hand at a few track days this year as well though. Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

    And of course here's a picture of my pride and joy!

    One thing I've been curious about with STT track days is if I have to change my coolant to water and water wetter or not for tracks like Road Atlanta and Barber?

    You can run coolant in your bike if you are in the novice group. Intermediate and advance, you can not use coolant. I highly recommend changing it to water wetter though. Its not very difficult and we can always help you do it if needed.

    What Brett said, plus, if your bike takes a piss while on-track (or in the pits), you get promoted to Vice President of Clean-up Operations. You will not be invited to the Company party.

    Of note, after you convert to water + your additive of choice, do not leave your bike in an unheated garage or trailer. Seems obvious, but if you're used to street riding, it might be easy to forget your baby on a cold night.

    Enjoy the ride,

    I hang a shop light from my radiator on super cold nights. I also put a glass of water next to my bike. If the water doesn't freeze I am not worried. The water has never frozen in an attached garage.

    Yeah that would be my problem since my garage is detached and unheated. But honestly I'd probably just change back to regular coolant after the track since I'm really only looking to do one, maybe two a year.

    Just put water wetter in after our cold weather is gone. It wont be long anyway. Then when your track season is over, go ahead and put some coolant in for when it gets cold.

    Engine Ice

    You could also switch to Engine Ice. It has a really low freezing point and I'm pretty sure STT allows it in all groups.
