Coolant ?

Can I use this ? It’s formulated for Asian vehicles. It’s Silicate free and POAT. And it’s blue in color if that matters? From what I gather that fills the requirements for the Versys.

its stated specific for Asian Vehicle, correct me if wrong. There are difference grade of coolant for each continent as its all tied to weather and temperature.

If you are not in the specified continent, best not to use, or refer to coolant manufacture recommendation.

Have no idea about the product you posted. But my last 3 bikes when it was time to change the coolant. I flushed the system with a vinegar water mixture then flushed it again with distilled water then filled it wit Motul Motocool Organic. The Motocool is a little pricey but well worth it..I like it also because its pink in color and easy to see...

I've used Pentofrost A2 in my 2015 KLR650 and now the versys650. Same "green" type of coolant that comes in the bikes. It's a POAT type of coolant.

Yes, that is absolutely an excellent choice... Kawasaki motorcycles are of course engineered in Japan, making them Asian vehicles.

Any Asian coolant formula would be a good choice.
