Exclamation Coolant leak

I guess it was my turn this time

When i was coming to the office this morning i just notice some small drops of some liquid on the inside of the left (if you're sitting on the bike) air tube runner.
I then look futher and realise it's cooling liquid.

Still haven't checked if it's just somehow spilling from the reservoir (which i doubt because it had never done that before and the level was near the minimun) or if it's one of those radiator cracks some other have had

Any tips or advice from those who have had the same problem?

I just took mine in and it was leaking coolant like crazy. My MV tech at the dealership is awesome and he gave the bike the once over and said they all have a tendency to leak due to overfill.He said each bike has a "happy" level of coolant and its not necesserally the same on all. Mine seems to be a little below the MIN mark. He is going to check it a little more thoroughly and while it's there I'm having the Muzzy fans put in. He said the other common place to leak is out of the bottom of the water pump. Hope this helps

mine did the same thing.... i think it is the radiator cap that is faulty..... check for liquid running down the tubes and into your air box, which in turn soaks the air filter and ruins it. mine has done that before..... hasn't since I have replaced the filter, but I also put a small gasket and a small bead of sealant around the filler neck (metal) and expansion tank (plastic)

Correct it is new and I see your concern since you have not had a problem before.

I had a little pin whole leak in my radiator and i used pepper to seal it. But it's only temp. Take the plastics off and just sit there with the bike running until you see something leaking.

That's what i did... Oh... wash it down water before, so you sould know for sure.

Hope this helps, Rick
