Thread: Coolant leak
10-14-2012, 11:44 PM #1
I have a 06 GTX SC. Was riding it hard the other day for a good 2hrs with no issues. Began to flush it on the hose when the high temp alarm went off. Pulled the bungs and noticed coolant coming from inside the hull. I did a search and found a lot of suggestions towards blown head gaskets. I dont believe thats the case with mine as it was running fine and there is no white vapor coming from the exhaust.
I cant see any leaks so far, is there any common spots for leakages??? The doo is a stock craft.
Any help would be appreciated.

Found the leak. One of the hose clamps was missing (??????????????). I started removing one of the coolant hoses at the ride plate and the other end just came off at the thermostat side. Add to that, this clamp broke as soon as i touched it.
Do you think any damage would have been done when the high temp alarm went off???? I turned it off straight away.

Nah mate, you would not have done any damage! Replace the crappy OEM clamps with quality stainless ones and ride!!
