Coolant

What coolant do you recommend for 2005 Vee? I need antifreeze not just water water.

Coolant safe for aluminum is the big thing. Most are nowadays. Anything silicate and phosphate free marked safe for aluminum would be good.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. 2012 DL650A didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014+ DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012+ DL650s
