the manual says you only need 3.55 US quarts including the reserve tank, (so 32 oz or 1/4 gallon) would be fine....but the only size jakewilson.com had was a 64 oz ( or 1/2 gallon). i figure i am going to need a some extra for the flushing and for me spilling it everywhere. It's not fun unless you are wearing it (IMO).

paid 22 for it, but saw it for 18.63 somewhere else

Been using Engine Ice since 2008.
Have no problems. Will continue using it.
It comes in 1/2 gallon jugs already pre-mixed with deionized water.
You'll need slightly over one jug.

Remember that Engine Ice is a coolant and anti-freeze.
If you're thinking of doing track days, some tracks insist on water only, or with Water Wetter.
Engine Ice is definitely slippery stuff when spilled.

Thanks Winter....will need to have some added to my Bike...it's been so damn hot here I figured it couldn't hurt. Then again, I have thought that way in the past just to have it come back to bite me squarely in the a$$.

As always, that you too sub, your sage-like advice is well heeded. No track days for me, simply commuting thru Death Valley ...!

The company that makes Engine Ice recommends not adding Engine Ice (polyethylene glycol based) to the usual (ethylene glycol based) coolant.
Rather, a complete change over to Engine Ice during a coolant change.
