    Coolant type differs for different applications the aluminum, iron or other metals engine blocks requires different type of coolant it also depends on type of radiator water pump used for specific applications. So its better to search first that wat type of coolant ur bike requires & then search for specific product. D u have some reference/recommendation available fro manufacturer?

    The bike has a aluminum radiator, so guess I cannot use the ordinary coolant that we use in our motorcars...forget it...i have decided to use the bottled water (one of the three leading brands in the country)

    I believe Pyro coolant is compatible to aluminum radiators.

    Well recently I have observed some issue with aluminium radiator application which is being used with Pyro Coolant & that issue has been observed by some other users as well so better not to use Pyro coolant for aluminium radiators till further confirmation
    @7thgear

    Are u referring to Pyro ? that's pre diluted & doesnt need addition of Water

    I once read somewhere that antifreeze has chemicals in it that don't get fully activated until you add water. Most antifreeze is sold as a concentrated solution. So not sure if that goes true for all radiator types or not.
