I have coolant for my 2000 Triumph Trophy 1200.  HD4x HYBRID OAT coolant.  And I have Honda coolant with is ETHYLENE GLYCOL BASE, that I have used in my 1987 K75s.  Can I combine these two?  Or is mixing brands a no no!

Some coolants are incompatible and when mixed can form a gel which will block passages. Even when changing brands it is prudent to flush the core and block thoroughly.
