Honda *car* coolant in 919 query

I have access to some official Honda car coolant (dealer down the block having a sale) and find I am going to need to change the coolant in the bike shortly. Does anyone know of a reason why I shouldn't use this in the 919? It seems to meet all the requirements per the label.

Someone uses Honda car coolant in his 919 with no problems, STDOCLIZARD I think. It's a certain type though, non-silicate of course.

Yeah, that's the stuff the dealer has on sale. I don't use silicated coolant in anything I own and haven't since the 90s after I saw a study of what it does to water pump seals.

The 90s... seems to be a rise in breast enhancements at that time period as well. Now we know where all the silicates went.

+1 to what andrew said. You should be fine since it has no silicates.

It's what I run in mine. I think if you dig about in the archives you'll find information regarding running it.

I was introduced to it at an ST1300 Tech Session sponsored by a Honda Technician Trainer and have been using it ever since in all my water cooled bikes.
