Proper coolant for a 910s Brutale
I recently purchased a '06 Brutale. I like changing fluids when I purchase something used so that I know when they were last changed. I've changed the oil and now would like to change the radiator fluid. My local dealer recommends a particular anti-freeze in a 50/50 mixture. I also own a '99 Ducati 996 and the dealer recommends using a non glycol coolant that has no freeze protection. I'm aware that glycol does not transfer heat as well as pure water, but there need to be some additives to prevent corrosion and also lube the water pump seal. Does anyone have any recommendations as to what is acceptable as a coolant that isn't glycol based? I'm thinking I can run the same stuff in the MV as I do in the Ducati.
