Anti-freeze Leak

After bike warms up seems to be leaking some anti freeze. Not from radiator. Tightned all hose clamps. Is there some relief valve? Has anyone else experienced this? Have not added anti-freeze.

Advice. Happy Thanksgiving.

Have you drained and changed your coolant? Did you just recently purchase the bike or have it serviced? How long have you noticed a "leak"? Have you checked the coolant level?

Mostly it is overflow. But, if it wasn't recently serviced, or filled, or tip, etc. I'd look into it further.

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!

Mine did this a little in the summer after a ride through town. The temps would go pretty high, and since it was a little overfilled, it would come out of the overflow tube. Under the right peg there is a little (maybe 1/4 inch) plastic hose that goes to the overflow on the coolant. Check it to see if that is where the fluid is coming from.

Press Any Key To Continue.

Don't worry about it. It's the overflow tube.
