Undisclosed Leak

Post by aholloway17 »



Hi All,

It was a few weeks between ride for the old girl. Weather turned too cold to ride. When it warmed up I went out to get her prepped and found under the lower front cowling under the oil filter, a cloudy yellowish fluid. I quickly checked the filter and bottom of the bike but all was dry. I also checked the oil which was a typical brownish oil color. Any ideas on what it might be? I think the last ride however, it did rain a bit.

Cheers,

Allen

Well, it is no longer a mystery! When it hits the floor it picks up dust and changes the color. It is antifreeze coming from a hose on the left side of the oil filter as I face the bike. Now, I guess I pull off the front and find the leak!
