Question about 2004 Yamaha XJR 1300

1 Answer

Coolant Leak Yesterday while riding, engine coolant leaked from the left side of my bike. I had to actually speed home to keep the temps below critical. When I arrived home there was no more coolant in the reservior. I removed the fairings and put coolant just above the min mark, and went out for a ride to test, temperatures stayed low and no leaks. I stopped and let the bike get over 200 degrees, and I still could not find a leak. My engine coolant was originally on the minimum mark when I had the leak, so i feel confident it wasn't because I had too much coolant.

There was nothing about having a leak and then not happening again after 5,000 miles of riding. If I remember, only something about it's normal and goes away when the seal around the water pump expands, but since my ride has over 5,000 miles I would imagine it wouldn't be pertaining to my situation. Make sure your rad does not have a small hole that spits coolant when under preasure/high temp.

Gs300 coolant is bubbling in resevoir,but temp is fine ?


Get coolant temp sensor checked.

Get the coolant pressure tested, its definitely leaking coolant. You will need to get the coolant running line.


Pressure test will help you to know from where exactly coolant/refrigerant is getting leaked.

Coolant leak, coolant poured out bottom of car..problem? pump?


Sure could be. Or a hose or a gasket somewhere.
You'll need to fill up the radiator and run the engine to look for the leak.
It may have to get up to operating temp before you see anything.

Coolant level


could be coolant leak possibly water pump common for that car. how many miles. think t-belt and water pump. Would be better to do both. or coolant leak from coolant flange on left side of engine under the plastic covers pull covers off both top one and smaller side one you will be able to see coolant flange from that view. look for pinkish or white trail on block below the flange or if you can look on the right side of engine from under car to see if there is a trail on that side on the right side it will be leaking water pump.

Coolant Leak


engine coolant leaked from the left side of my bike. I had to actually speed home to keep the temps below critical. When I arrived home there was no more coolant in the reservior. I removed the fairings and put coolant just above the min mark and went out for a ride to test temperatures stayed low and no leaks. I stopped and let the bike get over 200 degrees and I still could not find a leak. My engine coolant was originally on the minimum mark when I had the leak, so i feel confident it wasn't because I had too much coolant. ,There was nothing about having a leak and then not happening again after 5,000 miles of riding. If I remember, only something about it's normal and goes away when the seal around the water pump expands, but since my ride has over 5,000 miles I would imagine it wouldn't be pertaining to my situation. Make sure your rad does not have a small hole that spits coolant when under preasure/high temp.,,,
