I just used regular Prestone 50/50 mix in my old 1983 shadow. If it is good enough for many modern all aluminum car engines it should be OK for my bike.
I HOPE,--- because I read about low silicon coolant somewhere for our bikes. Any body else have a idea?

Pretty much most coolants are silacate free but it is something to watch out for when shopping. I used Supertech 50/50 from Walmart.

Supertech sounds like a deal, do they make a premix 50/50 ? I use there full syn motor oil in my Taco since new 107k later runs like a champ.

Wow, now I understand why we should use silicate free coolant. Very interesting. Thanks Adlowe ;)
