Not 'special' but it is made for aluminum engines with an aluminum radiator. Just be sure it is designed for your engine.

I would always have small amount in the overflow tank so you can see it.Not have to take off cap,to check on long rides.BTR

I think the bottle is there for environmental reasons. The YZ450, with an almost identical engine/cooling system, does not have the bottle because it's made for closed course competition only. I guess it's OK to spill glycol on private property....

Simple answer to why I like small amount in overflow tank that I can see.When doing rides,its my job to make sure all the bikes,are working.So on a 4-5 day ride.When we take a break,if I can see all the bikes have small amount in overflow tank.Then I know,rad hose does not have pin hole from brush,or rad.Where talking riding heavy brush,also looking over 4-9 wrs on ride.BTR
