That bike came from the factory with regular green antifreeze/coolant mixed 50/50 with distilled water. You can get it pretty much anywhere that sells automotive products.

The only way it should be anything other than that would be if someone has changed it over, which is rare.

    Chuck is correct. Also Go to your nea by Honda dealer. Let them do a service on it if you have not done one before. Do not be afraid to ask questions. Most of the time those guys will chat away. Learn about your bike. One of the joys of owning it i working on it. Have fun.

I'm thinking about buying a 2007 Honda sabre 1100.Is it fuel injected or do they have carburators?

I believe the 2007 Sabres are still carburated. I owner an 07 shadow and it was carburated. Still is a great bike and its ultra responsive. You won't be able to tell the difference.

Types 1-4 for tanks & fenders for 2002 Honda Shadow Sabre

they are different because the parts are different. depending on which outfit you purchased your bike in, such as classic or touring, will dictate what parts you need. I suggest you contact your local honda dealler and get the part numbers form them. That is the best way to be sure.
