Here is a tip. Glycol is used in cooling systems to provide an anti freeze anti boil component. It only raises the boiling point by a few degree and if its that close to boiling, a few degrees won't matter zot. It is not ANTI boil. Second, its anti freeze, so unless you are leaving your bike outside in sleet and snow, and I see you are in Florida, don't bother with it. I work with trucks, tractors cars bikes etc, and the big down fall with glycol is that it creeps, it is always trying to get out. If its not a green puddle on the ground then it will be white encrustations around cooling system joints and then a green puddle on the ground. However, don't put plain water in your cooling system. It is vitally important that you put a corrosion inhibitor in it. Remember those dunger cars you see with orange all over the engine bay? Thats rust and thats what happens plain water in cast iron engines. Plain water in the cooling system of alloy engines will corrode the engine parts very very rapidly. You must put an inhibitor in.

Thanks for the reply, I think your saying it will be fine.
It is the same as the Agip I.e. ethylene glycol and I do intend to dilute with di water.
PS the Florida reference is because I enjoy and go regularly to Florida for holidays with the kids. I actually live in the UK LOL

@Floridaregular: Yes, that coolant should be fine. Follow the 50/50 dilution directions.

Any modern coolant for aluminum engines will be fine in these machines. Some of us prefer propylene glycol to ethylene glycol for various reasons.
