Seem like some rusty liquid flowing out but not flooding the floor very tiny little bit clean it and it appears the next day ... Is this normal? Is something breaking soon? Pls help. Many thanksSome people use plain water plus a white rust inhibitor that will turn into a milky coolant. I would flush it and start with the blue or aluminum engine specific coolant. The weep hole leaking is an indication of a worn water pump. Show this to your mechanic, start on post 969: ,,,

Hi Nortey, and the usual suspects are:
1. Low coolant level.
2. Restricted radiator air flow.
3. Faulty thermostat. See dealer.
4. Coolant pump or fans inoperative. See dealer.
5. Vent hose crimped.
6. Air in coolant.

How much coolant and water should my 2001phone yz

Sorry I do not know about your yz per se but you should have a coolant full mark in your system coolant bottle and if not over full you should not have any coming out of the overflow line. You might have fluid coming out if you have a head leak into the coolant system though but check first that you are not overfull, the if you still have coolant coming from the overflow tube check to see if the coolant goes down and keeps going down further and further. Then pressure test your cooling system and check your coolant cap.

How do I check the coolant on my 2005 Boulevard?

The coolant reservior is behind the left side crank case cover. Low on the crank case cover is a viewing port. Using a flashlight, you can see the level of coolant in the reservior. If you need to add coolant or check its potency, you will need to remove the cover. Remove the bolts holding the cover in place and then remove the cover itself.

If you need to add coolant, you will need a coolant that is compatible for use in an aluminum radiator. Read the the coolant container lable carefully; the wrong type, especially alcohol based coolant will destroy the aluminum radiator. A 50/50 mix of coolant and distilled water should be used if you need to add any.

If you just need to check the potency of the coolant you can pick up a hygrometer at an auto parts store or one of those "big box" stores.

How do I check the coolant level? This is my first liquid cooled bike.

When the bike is cold remove the radiator cap and look in the radiator. If you see coolant at the top it's good. If it looks low or you can't see any at all you need to add coolant.

My 2003 volusia has a very slow coolant leak and since it is only a drop or two a day I can't pinpoint where it is coming from. It is dripping from just in front of the coolant reservoir but the hose...

1/Try using high coolant concentration even pure coolant without water mixture for a couple of days up to 2 weeks, see if you can see any coolant droplets forming around your reservoir wall or leaky area, OR,
2/Take off your coolant, fill it with colored water, cap it and pressurize with a hand pump, this may show the leakage but be careful do not put more than 5-7 psi, OR,
3/ Buy Rad leak stopper from automotive store, add to coolant reservoir proportionately, use bike as normal and everyday in the next 2-5 days keep checks if it still leaks. I doubt it will leak.
Good luck to try. If good enough go for it.

Where is the coolant drain for a 2006 Suzuki C50?

There is no drain at all!
If you remove the tool compartment you can get to the coolant reservoir. You will see that if there is too much coolant or the radiator gets real hot, the extra coolant will simply overflow the reservoir, go through the one black hose and empty on to the street. If you want to replace all of the coolant in the bike, you can unbolt the reservoir from the bike and disconnect the hoses and basically drain the coolant in that manner.
Here is a diagram that shows the radiator routing system.

How do I check the coolant level in my 97 spirit. I see no sight glass or anytning. I just see the filler tube with the cap that says coolant.

that's all there is. coolant should be to the top of the fill tube. check it only when the motor is cold. DO NOT open the cap when hot!!!
