Just got my bike back after having the oil rings done ! when I got home I saw the coolant level was low. the coolant in the bike is the factory honda coolant (Green). Can I add some castrol SF antifreeze which is pink.

Orange or pink a/f usually indicates the extended life type. If the bike didn't come with it, don't use it as it contains silicates. Plus it'll make a crappy colour in the tank. Stick with good quality aluminum compatible green a/f mixed 50/50 with distilled water.

Isn't the different colours for different temperatures?

For some reason VW are using red instead of blue, never looked into it to be honest.

If they sell it out there I recommend doing a coolant flush and useing Liquid Performance RED. If not I'm pretty sure it's available online though I would have to look.

I put it in my 03' 954 and it dropped the running temp by 9 degrees. It's also track approved here in the states so there is no need to mess with distilled water and water wetter. It's only about 2 bucks more expensive then regular coolant here in the states.
