Hey guys I'm trying to do a flush but idk what kind of antifreeze I could use. The manual is not very specific. Can I use just regular 50/50 from AutoZone? I have an 03 zx6r
i don't recommend any regular anti freeze. Must make sure it's aluminum safe anti freeze for one. But you can use distiller water and wetter water( which is also a track requirement at most tracks). If you have a cycle gear close by or access to www.cyclegear.com you can find motorcycle friendly anti freeze. You will probably get peoples opinion on here that will say autozone antifreeze is ok but it is not if it does not say aluminum friendly. Many manuals of old do not say but most all service manuals do. Hope this helps

I actually just found that kind today while I was at autozone. It comes in a yellow gallon. I think that one would work since it says it protects aluminum also.
sounds like a winner!!!! Where do you live? If it gets hot there a lot pick up some wetter water and add it to the antifreeze you buy. They say adding their pre mix will drop you 15•F. I haven't seen 15 but I have seen 5-10 with the additive
