Prestone makes a universally compatible coolant.
Also, higher precentages of coolant versus water actually reduce cooling capacity. Unless you plan to leave your bike out in really cold weather, it may run cooler at something like a 30/70 coolant/water mix. Redline's website may explain in more detail. As I recall (and its been awhile), its the motivation of using their WaterWetter with little or no coolant (kepp your bike above 32F).
You might want to do some research. Try this forum (12500 members):

The advantage to the dexcool is that it contains no silicates. Thus you dont have deposits on the seals that can cause damage to them.
I use to dump a bottle of redline than top off with dexcool, but running straight dexcool works fine. no heating issues at all.
