Cooling System

To ensure efficient engine cooling, check the
coolant level each day before riding the
motorcycle, and top off the coolant if the level
is low.

Technology (known as Hybrid OAT
or HOAT) coolant is installed in the

colored green, contains a 50%
solution of ethylene glycol based
antifreeze, and has a freezing
point of -31°F (-35°C).

Corrosion Inhibitors

To protect the cooling system from corrosion,
the use of corrosion inhibitor chemicals in the
coolant is essential.
If coolant containing a corrosion inhibitor is
not used, the cooling system will accumulate
rust and scale in the water jacket and radiator.
This will block the coolant passages, and
considerably reduce the efficiency of the
cooling system.
