So the manual says the Rc51can take any glycol ethylene coolant. Can i use my bmw coolant? The coolant in my bike is blue just like my bmw coolant.

For my RC51, I use Evans Waterless Coolant. No water, no corrosion.
Never, ever have to replace coolant, except for system failure or repair.
And even then, they recommend draining the coolant into a container, then return it back to the system.
Since there's no water, no cooling system pressurization required to raise the boiling point.
IF you could possibly find one, you could use a 0 PSI radiator cap.

How do your temps run with that crap though , it's not a very good thermal conductor. Are you running front mount rads ? On an offroad bike with no temp gauge , you could fry the motor and never have a clue it was that hot , aside from running like shit.
