    Possible Coolant leak areas?????

    It seems everytime I ride I lose a little bit of coolant. Nothing over the top but after a few long rides I need to add some more. I don't have an aftermarket intercooler and I don't see it puddled in the hull anywhere. I need some places to start looking. Thanks.

    I would just trace all the lines that leave the thermostat housing which is just below the air intake and see if you see any connections that may look wet. The intercooler lines do not have coolant in them, they use raw water. I hear the clamps on the rideplate sometimes leak and are replaced with worm style clamps.

    You Can Put Coolant Dye In Your Cooling System And Use A Black Light To Find Small Leaks. Does Engine Run Bad When First Started?todd

    Ski runs fine. Still pulls hard and all just a small leak somewhere.
