well i just adjusted the valve clearance on my ex and i'd like to see how it runs, but.. the only antifreeze i have is in a blue bottle, and the labels worn off, i was wondering what the chances are that it isnt safe for aluminum engines, i have absolutely no way of telling what it is, it was bought for a regular car, its still sealed, im just not sure whether or not its safe, would it be alright to run the bike at all with out antifreeze (just a min or two on the centerstand) or would that trash the water pump, this sounds really bad , but i cant afford to go out and buy new antifreeze at the time (yeah im that broke) so im trying to get by with what i have haha

Mix it at 50/50 . 50% antifreeze and 50% water . Or if it makes you feel better mix it 40% anti-freeze and 60% water .
