coolant issues???

good morning,

posted on er6-n forum

yesterday, when i got to work, the little beast started leaking coolant out he over flow hose.... called the dealership...never heard of the problem...service manager said it was ok to ride it home(33 miles)...i did...no IDIOT light came on....when i got home it started leaking again, the fan was running when i turned her off...will take it in next week...

Do you happen to have a radiator guard? I tried one but it was causing the bike to get too hot on 100+ temp days. I might but it back on when the temps don't get over 90. If you don't have a radiator guard my guess is that your radiator cap isn't sealed correctly.

The 105 degree temps are no problem. As was suggested the first thing to check is a proper sealing and functioning radiator cap. You can often find standard (cheap) caps at the auto parts store rather than spending money on a kawi one. Just get same size and pressure rating.
