You using that copperslip on your brake pad pins then? :002:

On the pin threads, they were a little stiff to unscrew, and a light smear on the rear of the pads.

I've used it in that manner too for years, on many different vehicles, never had a problem. :002:

Well I've learnt something today, my local Triumph dealership doesn't actually stock or use this 'HOAT' coolant in any bike that comes in for a service etc, they ONLY sell and use Motul Motocool Expert,....according to the blurb on the bottle, it can be added/mixed with any other type of coolant apparently. Anyone heard of this?

The subject of different coolants cropped on this video, he says that HOAT is good for 5 years/100000 miles,.....the Triumph workshop manual says replace every 3 years regardless of mileage.

Jump to 2.25 for the coolant info.
