I use the green from the parts store otherwise you can use the universal coolant that you can add to any make/model. if your machine is getting hot make sure the radiator is clean. remove the side gaurds and screen in front and wash it out good. your fan should suck the air through the radiator towards the motor otherwise while your riding the fan and air flowing from outside would work against eachother

I use Engine Ice, its specially made for ATVs and works great at keeping cooler then the factory coolant. I bought some at my local ATV shop, but most places have it online to order

You can also use AMSOIL Antifreeze Coolant. This is a propylene Glycol fluid that will perform better and last longer.

If I can get you some more information, just let me know.

Take care,

Take care,

Can you add to your existing coolant, or do you need to flush??

Yes you can mix this. It is a concentrate so you have to add water to it.
