Mixing engine coolant?
So I went to my dealer today to get some spare fluid for the coolant, since it's a little on the low side.
And they gave me a bright yellow coolant, but there is a blue coolant on the bike now.
I asked again and again, if they are absolutely sure that I can mix the two, and they claim that it won't cause any problem, that it's nothing to worry about.
Well now... I've been driving cars for some time now, and if it's something I've learnt, it is that you never ever wanna mix two different coolant fluids inside the system.
Here it's pretty simple, you've got a Red coolant, and a Blue one. If the car uses Red, then use Red. Is it Blue, then use Blue. The end. That simple. Just NEVER mix them.
So yeah, ofc I'm gonna be pretty darn sceptical here when they say "it's fine"
I ofc wanna trust my dealership and their expertice, and be able to take their word for it.
But the anxiety inside me is screaming by the thought of mixing two different fluids here..
So anyone more knowledable than me here on this matter that may shine some light upon this?
I tried looking in the handbook in regars of spesification needed for the coolant, to see if it's the same on the bottle I got, but it doesn't say anything about it in the book.
It just recommends Honda original, and should be 50/50 mix, or so and so depending on clima etc...
