Radiator Fluid?

Last night I geared my 07 and had to pull two coolant lines. I lost some fluid and was wondering what fluid I should use? It was green but I've never put anything except water wetter in a bike.

Use the same color fluid if its Green you should refill it with Green
regular radiator fluid will do the trick and its the same stuff any way



If it doesn't challange you it won't change you
