    The manual says to use "Triumph HD4X Hybrid OAT coolant" - 2.4 litres

    I have Googled this and can't buy it off the shelf, I guess I can from a Triumph dealer at a decent markup.
    What is a suitable alternative, are any of the following ok?

    Comma XSM5L 5L Xstream G30 Antifreeze and Coolant Ready Mixed: Car & Motorbike

    I understand the stuff to use is the Green coolant, but most other stuff is red or blue, I think the coolant in at the moment is blue!

    My dealer sold me this

    Motorcycle Coolant : Castrol Moto

    He said it's what they use in their workshop. Must be OK because if it f***s my engine he knows I'll be up there banging on the counter wanting some answers :biggrin:

    Cheers for the suggestion roadrider, I will look into that.
    I spoke to a Triumph dealer about this, and mentioned the very specific coolant requirements from the manual. He said it doesnt really matter, "Coolant is coolant" so I guess a lot of it may be rider preference.

    Just a tip but on my 2012 bike the dealer told me never to fill the expansion bottle past the minimum level as the bikes have the habit of blowing any extra out the overflow pipe and onto the floor.
