Mine had 1,700 miles on it when I noticed it.ryan77 said:How many miles are on bikes that are experiencing the coolant leak. Mine just started and I have ~2200 miles. Thanks for the pictures, I generally do all my own work once a warranty expires, but this looks too simple to bother taking to the dealer.
Do you mean the side of the motor opposite the exhaust side (NO PIPES SIDE). I would call that the left side???? :doorag:Trouble_Is said:Well.. after a few "spirited" light-to-light runs last night, I also experienced the coolant leak.Â I'm posting a couple of pictures for my fellow novice wrench turners.Â I'm not much of a mechanic but this is a pretty simple one to tackle.Â You have to remove the right-side airbox (if you have trouble or are unsure how to do this, I would suggest letting a tech handle it).Â The clamp in question is in the BurpleÂ Â box.Â Undo the electrical connector (arrows) to gain access to it.Â I used a 15/64 open-end wrench to loosen it a little (I know, I know... I own a "metric" bike and don't have a tiny "metric" wrench...yet)Â Â :redfaced:Â Â
Make sure the hose is on the nipple all the way, then tighten the clamp back up.Â Rotate it so you can use a screwdriver in the future.Â Don't forget to plug the connector back in.Â Check the coolant level and enjoy another day of riding - after cleaning all the green gunk off your rideÂ :bigthumbsup:
I know for most of you this seems very rudimentary but there are a few of us here who haven't had the pleasure of tearing things down and putting them back togetherÂ Â :dontknow:
