The same percent as you would for your car.
Use a "non- silicate" antifreeze only.

The engine takes 3.4 quarts or so and then another half a quart for the reserve.
1 gallon jug of 50/50 non-silicate should do.

I just replaced the Anti-freeze in my '78 GL1000 with Havoline 50/50 (orange) and it took 2.6 liters. The container size is 3.75 liters.

This is what the manual says. I assume it depends on how well the system drained.


Keep your expectations tiny and you won't end up so whiny.
