Just buy some pre-mixed coolant from an automotive store . Anything with ethylene glycol in it should be fine .
Any auto coolant will be fine . Coolant is coolant . It's obviously a bit different for engine oil where bike specific oil is recommended.
You can even buy neat coolant and mix it yourself with distilled water (not tap water).

I bought it and everything went thru perfectly fine, bike actually runs smoother after doing that and the oil change. Very happy, bike doesn't even vibrate anymore, it used to be so bad before, thanks for the help guys, will stick and lurk to the forums and see what everyones up to and post pictures along with you all!
Ride safe boys.

Man oh man, my bike has never ran so smooth before, it's never been so fast, the bike not even close to hot anymore it's on point, so glad my oil is golden now instead of black lolol Synthetic beats semi-synthetic, I believe it does make a huge difference.

Needing some help guys, I was ****ing with my clutch cable and I seem to of burned my clutch out? unaware of what exactly happened but, my bike was revving in high rpms while moving and i lost speed slowly and then it just wouldn't accelerate anymore, clutch does not have any friction to even move forward. and wouldn't move when in gear or stall when I let go of the clutch lever.

Any ideas of what this could be and what to order? appreciated.

madhatter,

Did you use motorcycle specific oil, or car oil?

Motorcycle specific oil has friction modifiers designed so that wet clutches do not lose their friction when bathed in oil. Almost all motorcycles use a 'wet clutch' design, where the clutch plates are bathed in oil. Obviously, an oily clutch is a slippery clutch. You need to be using the correct oil, or your clutch will slip.

That said, it does sound like the clutch is utterly naffed now. Replacement is probably going to be required.

You will need this:

and also this:

Alternatively, there is also a premium aftermarket one, which might even be cheaper.

Instructions for fitting the clutch are pretty easy. If you decide to to it yourself, let us know and we can guide you.

I used 10w-40 motorcycle oil castrol fully synthetic, so I should order both of those and those do fit for my specific bike ?

I'd suggest taking the clutch plates out first to make sure you need to replace them.

Sorry to hear about the issue, but I'd like to say, you've got good taste  ;)

I'm not a fan of bar end mirrors as sometimes I notice cars behind me without looking at the mirrors and that's not possible with the bar ends, but since you went with them you should check out XRT, they make block off plates for our bikes, I couldn't find it online in a quick search but I've seen them on a bike a few years ago at the dealer.
