We've got an "03" 1800s with a small, intermitent coolent leak as the engine warms up. It seems to be coming from the top end. We've tightened most of the clamps and it still does it. Any ideas anyone?

My friend had the same problem. He found the leak under the front of the engine. The rear clamp on that hose was loose.

Is there a problem with the hose clamps from the factory not being tight enough? I've heard this before. I can't enen get to the clamps or hoses without taking half the crap off to get to them. I really don't want to do this, but it looks like a weekend project I'm gonna have to do.

think we found the leak coming from the small hose behind the crossover connection. Took half the bike apart to get to the clamp. It was finger tight. Thanks everyone.
