i"ve never heard of engine overflow tubes...but bikes do have overflow tubes from the coolant tanks. Coolant should not overflow from the tank unless under extreme heat conditions.eg: idling for long periods and constant stop and go traffic. If your bikes coolant system hasn't been serviced in the last two years you might want to do that. also i would change out thermostat and also make sure that your fan is turning on..if its overflowing the fan should be on because the thermostat sends a signal to turn the fan on.

The cause is most likely a faulty radiator cap. Replace it if you can. It is not sealing properly, and allowing coolant to escape out the overflow tube. You can try cleaning the cap under running hot water, pressing down on the spring at the same time, to dislodge any dirt or grit.
