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.
