I keep reading about silicate free antifreeze. How do you know when you go to get antifreeze if it is silicate free? I have looked at the jugs but cannot see anything about silicates.

Most of the extended life antifreeze is silicate free. I use Prestone Extended Life. If you go to the web sites of the various manufacturers they usually will tell you if a particular anti freeze is silicate free. Take a look at this:

If you Google 'silicate free antifreeze' you will find a lot of information.

Honda's Type II is silicate free and its green. I just buy that so I don't need to worry about other makes being compatable or not.

OK, thanks. I asked those questions as the colour of the coolent in my bike is BLUE. I know that it was flushed and changedlast spring by the PO and was just trying to match what he used-provided it was silicate free. Guess I will have to ask him.

I just got some at our local CTC store -their own brand name which is made by Prestone, the long life DEX COOL compatable, and it states "silicate and phosphate + 3 other things free" Couple of bucks cheaper than the Prestone beside it.

It's even better if you can find cost free. But two bucks is two bucks.

Evans NPG+ Waterless Coolant. 375+ deg boiling point with no pressure on system, -40deg F. freeze. I've put 6000 miles on this product in my '83I. It has no silicate or any chemicals that are detrimental to yellow metal cooling systems.

PM me if you'd like more info. [email protected].

I do not sell orreceive any comps for promoting this product but so far it's worked well for me.

 Wait ... Wait... You mean..... GASP !!... a Honda 50 does not have antifreeze/forums/images/emoticons/shock.gif ???? Probably no Shaft drive either... That means that tune-ups must just consist of shaking it gently to be sure the brigestones have not fallen off, and hopping on ??? outrageous !!/forums/images/emoticons/tongue.gif LOLOLOLOL SilverDave /forums/images/emoticons/emoticonsxtra/cooldj.gif

Hi,

I won't buy anything from my local Honda Motorcycle dealer. But I did buy the anti-freeze from my local Honda car dealer. It's blue, matched the bike. It says silicate and boron free on the jug.

I don't know for sure if the injected models have larger radiators than the standard, but 4 liters would do mine with a little to spare.
