Question about 2007 Yamaha YZF-R6

2 Answers

Coolant tank I have to add coolant to the resevoir on my 04 R1 about every other ride. I have checked every hose, but found no leaks or any signs of leaks. My oil looks great and the bike runs awesome, so I'm not sure what else to check. I don't see any white smoke coming from the exhaust either. I give up. Where the hell is this coolant going to? Anyone else have a similar experience?

    I have the same problem with a R6 2003, found leak from the O ring (smaller one) water pump, drips every 5 seconds or so, I am about to put a whole new pump from a R6 2000, exactly the same part, hopefully that will solve the problem. get under the pump , let bike running and keep an eye to it, you will probably see the leak.

I have the same problem in a R6 03, get under the water pump and keep the bike running , you will probably see the drip from there, hope this help. I will put a whole new pump from an old R6 2000, whenever I get a chance.

I loose coolant everytime I run the bike. Can't find any sign of a leak. Hoses are good. Fittings are good. Any ideas why?


blown head gasket, check oil, does it look milky, if it does, try putting in a quarter bottle of Blue Devil Gasket sealer!
