I have almost a gallon of MBZ coolant(blueish) in color and no longer have the car.

Can that be used in a motorcycle which calls for coolant? Like a Honda or Suzuki or Yamaha motorcycle?

Thanks for any of your input.

I don't see any reason why not. Triumph motorcycle OEM coolant is also blue so they may share the same supplier as MB.

Which MB was it for? Their most recent coolant is Zerex G-05. That normally isn't compatible with Asian vehicles. Considering the problems that GM had with Dexcool, I wouldn't bother with the wrong spec fluid. Just recycle it and get the right fluid.

It was for 04 CLK 500 and in a MB white bottle.

You probably already know this, but if you do decide to use it, I would make sure to flush out the cooling system very well to make sure you don't mix any two different types of coolant.

If you put German coolant into Japanese bike you will unleash WWIII.

Don't do it. Think of the children.
