Does anyone know which brand of antifreeze to use which is safe for the V?

The Manual says Permanent type of antifreeze?:confused: what does that mean??

I heard that some additives in car coolants can block the radiator pump or something?? Anyone know anything about this??

There is no permanent type coolant... Kawasaki means long-life (4-5 year) coolant, and the recommended replacement interval is 3 years/36000 kms (24000 miles). Mix 50/50 with distilled, demineralized or deionized water with bittering agent. Total capacity is 1.2 litre.

There can be some problems when mixing different types of coolants that have incompatible additives...

Whatever you use, make sure it is rated for aluminum block and radiator.
