    Default F3-S coolant

    Went to two auto part stores today to find some coolant for my wifes 2015 Spyder F3-S. The manual says to use BRP long life coolant but I am not driving an hour and a half to the can-am dealer. It also says "or coolant designed for aluminum engines". Both of the popular auto stores didn't have anything and they said that I would probably have to go to the dealer. What coolant do you guys run in the 1330? The bike currently has the orange coolant and I just need to top it up. I couldn't believe the stores didn't have a coolant for aluminum engines. Thanks.

    Most auto engines are aluminum I thought nowadays

    Instead of driving to the dealer an hour and a half just order it online from a dealer since you only need to "top it up"

    Probably time to drain, flush F3 radiator system on 2015 F3 Spyder.
    Then you can install ICE Coolant, for Aluminum & all engines.

    Ignore original post.

    otherwise be a vulgar brawl.

    I know this. Why are you quoting the manual?
