Question about 1989 Yamaha FZR 600

1 Answer

Constantly leaks coolant. I have to refill at least once a week.

Once i fill the coolant and ride, it stays right were it should for temp. But as soon as im done riding, the coolant leaks and almost completely drains. This is getting very frustrating since i really am not sure why it keeps leaking. Any advice is much appreciated.
Thanks

    I havent really looked that close. But when it leaks it pretty much pours over the engine.

Overflow tank not storing coolant.


Don't jump the gun and replace the head gaskets like the guy recommended...you need to have a technician look at it...can be a minor issue or something totally different. I had the problem with my stratus and paid tons of money to do the heads...never solved the issue and heads were done right. Its was blockage with in the coolant system and was discovered til my water pump went out.

Cooling problem on 1997 deville


Get an engine analyzer that is capable of sniffing and measuring exhaust gases ( can be read in the overflow container ) Looking for excessive exhaust gases indicating leaking head gasket or cracked head. I would consider a cooling system flush. Sometimes an excessive amount of GM sealing tabs used in previous repairs will cause poor circulation and high temps, as well as phyical blockage of cooling fins on the radiator. Hope this helps.

Coolant Leak


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.

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.
