Cool engine coolant

when adding coolant to the motorcycle is regular coolant for aluminum engines the correct type?

I've always bought the coolant found at bike shops, I can't imagine that regular coolant would be wrong but I can't say for sure

as Spok said, any coolant should work but double check your manual if you are not sure. if the bike needs a specific coolant, i would think it would say so on the reservoir as well.

I use Evans Cool, waterless coolant. I have never had rust or corrosion, or even a leaking water pump again after converting some years back!
