No issues mixing the Zerex with the Triumph OEM coolant?

Zerex is the closest I could find to the original OEM spec (HOAT) coolant. Still, I would not mix them out of an abundance of caution. Drain, flush and renew.

I was more or less concerned with having some on hand to top it off if needed.

I just got mine back from its 10K service, so it should be a non-issue anyway.

I have a quart of Pro-Honda coolant for my CBR500 on hand just in case.

If I do my own drain and fill, I usually use Coolanol.

Don't overfill the reservoir. My TEX is best with the level set at the lower mark on the bottle. Any more and you may have an overflow if you get into stop-and-crawl traffic on a hot day.

I used Motul Motocool, as far as I know it's compliant with Triumph specs and it has a high-freezing point, which I need, since I live in North Sweden
