Hyperstrada Coolant

The factory coolant recommendation is ENI / AGIP, which of course is unobtanium in the U.S., or so it seems. What is a compatible coolant for the Hyper? I don't need to add any, but want to have a liter or so on hand just in case.
Thanks!

How do you actually check the coolant level on these bikes. I can't see anything in the nice white level indicators on the tank.

Thanks. I can see fluid down in the tank but still cannot see any line on the windows to indicate the level.

I will try and find a stick or something wood and put it down in there to see what the actual level is. I can see fluid so it must be good LOL:

Time to buy some chop sticks.

hahaha...the white sight "window" is anything but translucent. I do what @dragoontwo does...shine a light down the filler cap opening into the reservoir and see the actual coolant level.

Yep it's a PITA.
Not easy to gauge the level at all. I've tried shining a light down in there before without much success. Guess I need a stronger light
