So I guess the new question is, "What's the correct ratio of Palmolive and  water?"

I usually just did it in same ratio as water wetter's instructions plus a little more.

I am assuming by palmolive you mean water wetter.  If so, follow the instructions on the water wetter bottle.  The people that designed the product would know what the best ratio of wetter to water to get maximum performance.  I think it says 3-4 capfulls per quart of water.  I have used this ratio with no issues.

If you do mean Palmolive, then I would recommend that you add enough to get the full bubbly lather your radiator desires!!!  (lol)

How are you planning to pour this elixir into your big chunk of Milwaukee iron?

Check your owners manual.  I think your about to use the wrong orifice.  (LOL)

I am sure that Palmolive would work.  It is not like water wetter is expensive, so just buy it.  If your in a pinch Palmolive to your hearts content.  Just make sure you dump it in the correct hole!!!!

I was just kidding.

I just buy a gallon of distilled water and add Water Wetter's recommended ratio directly into the gallon container. That way it's mixed before I put it into the radiator and I have it handy in case I need to add to the reservoir.

Asking for a friend I am trying to get to do a trackday. Palmolive sounds like it would create pressures with suds. Who in the hell was the first guy to think "I'll just put some Palmolive in there"?

it does.  The fan wasn't working on my R6 and it was pissing soapy water on a hot day, looked like a dishwasher overflowing.  lol.

I am new here.  In fact this is my first post, and I am new to sportbike racing. I raced motocross to put myself through college then raced outlaw sprint cars.  In both we usd water wetter.  the sludge happens if it gets mixed with any antifreeze. De-ionizign does not remove the metals form the water, make sure you use the distilled stuff, and doubling the dose doesnt hurt, if anything it makes the water pump last longer.
