As a replacement for coolant? I've heard that it will rust things up and cause bad things! lol Is this true? Should I change it out asap after my track day? I didn't want to fork out some more dough on Water Wetter and such but next time I might have too. Thanks to anyone who replies who's helpful. :nerd

You're already on the right track. All of the anti-corrosion inhibiters are in the antifreeze. Further, water boils at 212 degrees which is a common temp in this kind of weather. Coolant mix is good for about 240. I'd get it out. This is particularly important for bikes that have cast sleeves for the cylinders (not so common anymore.) But aluminum corrodes too.
