I always use Honda pre mixed anti freeze, it's not expensive and you only do it every other year.

I use Valvoline brand, specifically made for Honda, Hyundai, Nissan, Toyota etc.
It is, of course, silicate free, which is the most important feature you should be looking for.
Silicates eat water pumps.

I believe "Low" silicates means that there are silicates STILL in it so I would NOT use it......

it MUST SAY, Silicate FREE.

it is your bike, but unless you want to replace the water pump and radiator, stick solely to "Silicate Free"

Or just go to your nearest Honda car dealer and buy a gallon of the real thing, not that there is anything wrong with most major brands.

That's what I said in post 5. That's where mine comes from. Less than $20 gallon vs $6-$7 a quart.
