Question Coolant on the ground

My TVL coolant is always at the MIN mark on the bottle. Every time I add coolant to bring it to the top of the range mark it pukes it out from a tube under the bike a bit at a time after a ride. Eventually it seems to settle at the MIN mark again.
Is this common, or do I have a bigger problem?

It seems to be common, not saying it should be this way, but this is how mine is as well.

It's a feature not a bug. If the overflow tank is near/above the min line, the bike will slowly puke coolant out until it gets back to where it wants to be.

Freaked me out when it first happened, but it seems to be pretty stable/predictable. It just doesn't like a lot of extra coolant hanging around...

This happens across the MV Model range.

Keep your coolant at the min mark when cold.

I have 3 and they all do that! I just stopped worrying about it and leave it at the Min mark.

It's a lovely feature, just make sure you can see the coolant in the tank
