When I arrived home just now after a 20 mile ride, I parked with the engine running to open the garage and a puddle of blue liquid was spilling out of a tube on the left side of the bike. I assume (and hope) this is the radiator fluid overflowing? The thing is, the engine wasn't hot, it was only 200 degrees. Any thoughts?

Water Pump

Follow this link >Leaky Water Pump?

Sounds like a leaky water pump. I replied back before looking at what model year you have but If it is a newer model 2003 + MV still can't get this fixed? I mean come on already. Almost every F4S 750 has had this problem as well.

It is a pretty easy fix under warranty, but I have now had two MV's with this same exact problem :mad:

Well, if Brutale is like an F4, it's most likely the coolant. It either had air in it, and must have basically coughed it out, or the coolant relay may have fowled up or got disconnected. The relay is on the right side under the tank.

Sometimes, even at dealerships, they find a little blue puddle under the bikes in the show rooms due to the air bubble issue...

Same thing happened to me last week. It only happened once and I figure I will mention it when I bring it in for its first service. Whatever leaked stained my driveway but I know it was coming from one of the overflow hoses.

This is a known issue on the F4 so I assume the Brutale will be the same. You almost have to run your coolant level at the minimum mark or you will experience the "Boil Over" via the overflow tube as you explained.

Now if your water pump was leaking, you would not see the coolant coming from the tube, however, it would be coming from the circumference of the water pump itself.

Triple Seven,
blue liquid is no a problem:Some times wen i arrive at hom,with hot engine there is a blue liquid on my GLADIO's red tube (wen it is parking,some time also the day after).I went in MV CORSE last year for this problem,they told me is a normal think!Because air-filter is full.Now this year again blue liquid.....

You guys rock.

My dealer warned me about this.

He said 1 in 3 develop this issue after 200 miles, and then after a thousand it stops.

He said it's very common.

This evening I pull up and the same thing.

Blue liquid all over the garage.

Looks like it was coming from the overflow (I hope).

Like awiner said if it's coming from the tube the bike is just overfilled, MV's HAVE to run the coolant at the lower/minimum level mark, my 1000R spewed water out for a week or so until the level reached minimum.

If it was/is the water pump it will leak from the water pump housing and NOT out of the coolant tank overflow pipe :)
