Question about 1999 Yamaha YZF-R6

1 Answer

I bought a 1999 yamaha r6 and i've been out riding and noticed that while riding or just letting the bike idle it is draining a greeny looking fluid into the reservoir and filling it up beyond the full marker. So i've been draining out that fluid and filling the res. between low and full with prestone anti freeze/coolant... The bike seens to be sounding different and running different than when I bought it..??? Any ideas??? And any sugestions and a different anti freeze/ coolant?? thanks

    I've heard the fan come on the other day i thought i heard it come on today it got to 110 degrees today... i was thinking it could possibly be the thermostat??

    i heard the fan come on the other day but im not sure if i heard it come on today or not.... but im thinking the rad could be getting low on coolant since its pouring into the overflow and im draining it out....but i dont understand why it is draining out.... so i was thinking it could maybe be the thermometer??? the highest it has got up to was 110 today....
