Leaking coolant from a hose under the crank case
You give no information on what kind of bike you own for me to mentally visulize it. However if you are speaking of what appears to be an open ended drain hose hanging down from the motor, follow the hose and if it goes into the engine near the waterpump this is what is commonly referred toas a "tattle tale" hose and is indicating by the leak that you waterpump seal is bad and will require waterpump rebuild or replacement

It means your water pump seal is seeping at this point. Eminent failureportended. Replace water pump. Seals on pumps usually fail because of bearing wear, so this is a precursor to pump shaft failure. Good luck

Hi I am Vortash I hope this is just a faulty cap or seal but it could be signs of something more sinister check your oil for contamination ( emulsification oil in water turns white at temprature ) it could mean you have a head gasket problem starting or indeed happening as preassure is building and blowing the coolant out .. hope for your sake I am totally wrong and it is just a faulty cap .. regards vortash

SOURCE: coolant leaking
sounds like a gasket is leaking check your engine oil and make shure no coolant in there ,will float on top of oil and fog sight glass if fitted. do not use bike if so. it may be a long shot but look at the rad cap if also on the left. it may be leaking on the go when hot under pressure , change for piece of mind, money is never wasted on safety features .finally check other side of engine as leak may be running from one side to the other.

Yes you can. If you remove the clips from the tube you can move it one way and change 'o'ring. Slide it the other way and change 'o'ring. Move back to centre and refit clips.
