Just did a Coolant change on my 2013 Hyperstrada. Followed the service manual and drained and refilled with Prestone 50/50 Long Life Coolant with cor-guard inhibitors. Afterwards I realized I probably should have done a flush but it didn't even cross my mind as it was never mentioned in the service manual and I'm a noob when it comes to automotive stuff.

The original Pink AGIP SPEZIAL is an ethylene glycol based coolant. The prestone is also ethylene glycol based. From what I can tell a bit of the left over AGIP mixing with the fresh prestone should be fine? Anyone with more Coolant experience want to help put my mind to ease or tell me I ****ed up?

Here's the prestone I used:


Appreciate the help :smile2:

It will be fine but you really should use bike specific coolant. I believe there are specific requirements for bikes. The pump turns quicker, the seals ate different etc.

I would not worry about it immediately, but at some stage this year do a drain, flush and refill with bike specific stuff.

Just what I have read. Others may have better advice.
