There is a difference between the Dex-Cool and the Dex-Cool compatible. The Dex-Cool for many is on hold due to a HUGE law suit against GM for major cooling system problems. The Dex-Cool compatible's are probably fine.

Do a Yahoo search for "Dex-Cool Law suit"

One thing I've found out about the proper coolant for our bikes is to look for the Global type. All the Global coolants that I've found are the extended life (or mileage) (or forever) coolants. They are ALL, silicate free, borate and phosphate free because of the requirments of the other countries.

I'm not sure about the synthetic DOT 4 brake fluid, I always buy the regular DOT 4 fluid from anywhere other than a bike shop.
