Coolant Type

is any regular anitfreeze ok to run in the rhino.
im doing a radiator relocate this week and i dont really wanna drive an hour the the closest yamaha dealer just for more engine ice or a bottle with yamahas name on it.
it would be alot easier just to run into town and get some prestone and bottle of water wetter.

I run the GM Dexcool in mine with water wetter and it sits at 175-180 all day long with an oversized oil cooler in front of the radiator. Not sure if it's ok too run Dexcool, but it seems to work fine.

I use Peak 50/50 premixed coolant works great!

You would be fine with Prestone- 50/50 mix but while your at the parts store get a bottle of Water Wetter and use that too. Just use that much less antifreeze.
