Coolant Leak-86 1200I Wing.

Postby jpmurphy » Fri Sep 27, 2013 1:20 pm



My son & I just replaced my Stator on the weekends. All back together now. Starts & Runs !
I have a [b]coolant leak [b] at the lowest bolt on the Output Shaft Access Plate.
I pulled the plate off, just the plate, and can't see anything relating to a leak.
I don't know what to do next. Need the bike tomorrow for a city wide run/parade, but it looks like I'll be in the bleachers instead of on the seat.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Many Thanx...

There is no coolant leak @ the plate. Just stuff dripping down from somewhere above. Slept on it last night and realized I was way off base. Pulling off the gas tank cover this morning to see if I can find the actual source of the leak. Hopefully it's just a hose connection I overlooked @ reassembly. :roll:

That's a common thing to happen. You identify a leak somewhere down at the bottom of the engine, but the leak is actually way up top. My wife's PC800 had an oil leak that I at first thought was a seal near the bottom, but ended up being leaky cam plugs in the head way up at the top.
