Simple question (I hope!). Which type of coolant should I use in the bike? OAT Antifreeze or Silicate Antifreeze? Does it matter? If so why does it matter?
Thanks in advance!

I may need to move my XR400 and as I don't have a van (nor a car for that matter) I was looking to hire one. Question is what size of van do I need. I know it will fit in a transit but what about something smaller? Will it fit in one of these car sized vans but with the higher back.
