I was able to score a bottle of this Mazda coolant(green color) for free :P

It says, safe for all aluminum engines.

Can I safely use it in my Japanese(yamaha) motorcycle, as well as my Honda Civic?

I started this thread regarding MB coolant, https://bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/4477328#Post4477328

Which one would be a better choice for a motorcycle?

Provided I'll drain all coolant and then will flush with distilled water.

Thanks for the advice and help thumbsup

Generally, you're fine using any coolant you want provided all the old stuff is flushed out.

I have VW coolant in a jeep wrangler with the 4l because it's what I had on hand FWIW. Though of note, I'd steer clear from Toyota coolant and Dexcool. And be careful with Chrysler coolants. They have a bunch of them out now that aren't compatible with each other and fade to about the same color after some use

I remember a while ago that some Toyota coolant are not safe for lead solder but the others are. I would double check with a Yamaha forum and Civic forum to make sure people there hasn't tried and found problems with it. OEM coolants may not be tested for corner cases like retail coolants, they usually only test it for their own brand.

I think, I am fine using Mazda one, since it's safe for aluminium.

Will mix it with distilled water and hopefully it'll be all good smile
