    Roy:

    Prestone makes a "special" anti-freeze for motorycycles but I was unable to locate anyone that carried it.
    There was a thread on ADVRider where it was concluded that "regular" automotive Prestone should work fine.

    Warning: Bleeding the air out of the coolant system is not without its challenges

    See my little mis-adventure here, with some sage advice from one of our resident experts Joel:

    not sure about "siciaka free"- but i'd feel fine using anything that is "silica free".

    it most certainly does not need to say BMW anywhere on it to be okay.
