I went for a ride the other day and when i got back and shut off the bike (03 1800R 1800 miles) I watched as coolant leaked from somewhere onto the ground. I thought it was loose hoseclamps from the radiator hose because it looked like that is where the leak originated, when i tightened them i got about a full turn out of them. Then i went for about a 100 mile ride and there was no leaking. But i just got back from another ride today and the leaking is back. Anyone else have this problem.

Coolant leak

Just this morning I noticed a leak on the ground and I also tightened the hose clamps a couple turns BUT no leak yet!! Going on a long ride tomorrow so that should tell the tale.

I just went through a similar problem. Turned out that the weld around the lower mounting bracket was weak, removed it and took it to a local radiator specialist type. Twenty bucks to locate and repair the leak with marine epoxy weld, pressure test to make sure it solved the problem and a 1 yr. guarantee thrown in. Not bad, well worth the 20. Tim
