Thankfully it's not oil. :grin:
I never followed up on this post. The leak was from the overflow tank, and I resolved the problem by rerouting the overflow hose over the side panel mount.
I feel stupid asking now because very easy to see from the left side lol. Mine isn't leaking after the first 1000klms but will tighten it today anywayHad a smell of burning coolant but couldn't see anything for a few week.
A few days ago, saw a single drop. Tracked it all the way up to the known culprit. The clamp on the thermostat hose. Two minutes a a few turns of the wrench/socket later and no more leak. No more smell.
Pretty tight an difficult to see, but really not an issue after you identify the clamp screw. Easiest to find from the front left side of the bike, behind the radiator and high up on the engine.
At least it's a simple fix. I was pretty shocked when I found my steering lock doesn't work because the shaft doesn't line up with the hole in the top triple clamp. That is just poor and obvious no one checked it. It's about 3mm out!Strange to see new bikes leaking in this day and age, but I guess it is what it is...
Keep an eye on the clamp. Will probably not have to re-tighten, but worth monitoring.
Thats the hose clamp itself right? Mine seems to be rotated im going to try and tighten it today to see hopefully its from their that it is leaking colant.
Correct. Looks like they made it extra annoying for you!
