I think stock it's 50/50 (green) so as long as you add some of that stuff you'll be fine. Also if you decide to add water make sure it's distilled. I'm running water wetter in my bike with distilled water.

Ive heard good things about "Engine Ice"
alot of people claim the bike runs almost 20 degrees cooler. I for one am gonna try that stuff out.

But if your just "low", a little water will be fine to put in there.

Generally there are two types, regular everyday antifreeze (thats been around for awhile) and the long life. "Usually" the long life is red or pinkish and the regular is green. I believe OEM uses the regular green type. You can buy the premix (50/50) its a little more expensive but there is no hard water issues that typically happens at home. Just be sure whatever you buy has a corrosion inhibitor specifically for aluminum engines.
