I have always used the green from the auto parts store, otherwise you could buy the universal coolant you can add it to any color/make of vehicle. with temp light make sure radiator is clean remove the front screen and side covers and hose it off good. the fan should be sucking air through radiator otherwise when you are driving the fan and natural air movment would be fighting eachother

Polaris recommends their coolant cause it's a 60/40 mix

If there's a trail I ride em'...
If there is no trail I make one...
