Use engine coolant that is com patible with an aluminum radiator, mixed with distilled water at a 50:50 mixture ratio for engine coolant solution. An engine coolant mixture other than 50:50 can affect cooling efficiency or rust inhibiting performance.

Engine coolant

Engine coolant should be used at all times in your motorcycle's radiator, even if the temperature in your area does not go down to the freezing point. Engine coolant acts as a rust inhibitor and water pump lubricant as well as an antifreeze solution.

Warning


Engine coolant is harmful or fatal if swallowed or inhaled.

Do not drink antifreeze or cool ant solution. If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Lmmedi ately contact a poison control center or a physician. Avoid inhaling mist or hot vapors; if inhaled, remove to fresh air. If coolant gets in eyes, flush eyes with water and seek medical attention. Wash thoroughly after handling. Solution can be poisonous to animals. Keep out of the reach of children and animals.

Spilled engine coolant can damage painted surfaces.

Do not spill any fluid when fill ing the radiator. Wipe spilled engine coolant up immediately.

Water for mixing

Use distilled water only. Water other than distilled water can corrode and clog the aluminum radiator.
