Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

It should be the Expensive stuff that doesn't Knacker your water pump seal.
I think it is Silicate free. Mines green.
Somebody on here will know for sure.

I chuck in this stuff after roughly diluting it 50/50. 
I personally use tap water but I can get away with it in my area as I've got soft water so there isn't any lime in it. Best way to tell what sort of water you've got is by looking inside your kettle, if it's old like mine 5+ years and there isn't any limescale
