Well, they usually suggest the house brand. Which is probably a safe bet.
They give the specs, but they also say: (if you had read the manual). :cautious: "SUZUKI SUPER LONG LIFE COOLANT鈥 or 鈥淪UZUKI LONG LIFE COOLANT鈥
I guess you need to spend some more time on the planet. That's not a bad thing is it?

Then you know exactly what Suzuki recommends is not Motal because they give the exact brand recommended.

Not in England they don鈥檛 buddy. The dealer said and I quote: we don鈥檛 bother with the advised coolant when this is just as good and a lot cheaper too. He also added that they use motal coolant in ALL their bikes. (Their words not mine) 馃憤

You get a different owner manual then? Interesting that the UK manual is missing pertinent info other locations are not. My bad, I assumed (there's that word) your manual was the same as mine. Sounds like not.

I did a search for motal coolant. The closest I found is Motul. I assume (there is that word again) you are mis-spelling the manufacturer?

What testing criteria did the dealer use to reach this conclusion? Just curious what the dealer's basis is for the conclusion they have given and you repeat. Who knows, Motul may be made or Suzuki is rebranded in the same facility.
