Water wetter mixed with standard coolant coagulated in my 12. Didn't really make that big of a difference either. Flushed that crap out and ran distilled till clear, then coughed up a pretty penny and filled the old girl with Engine Ice. Worked far better for the dozen or so times I rode her before she stopped starting and got parked in a corner.
I may switch my new Vulcan over to Engine Ice as well. Seems to work pretty well. The 12 handled stop and go much better, and even ran a bar lower on the highway! Is good stuff, but kinda spendy.
As far as burping it, I've found tipping the bike over to be very effective. Discoverd that by accident (don't ask...cause I ain't telling....haha), and that's how I do it now. Gets the air out real fast and easy. Top the radiator off, and res tank and you're good to go.
