I really doubt it's a head gasket. Seems more likely one of the hoses has shrunken a bit. It should get better with use.

On mine, many years ago a dealer said my leak was a head gasket, but it turned out to be the water pump. The coolant would run up and back when driving...

On that particular leak, I had the bike to 3 different dealers who made 3 different diagnosis. None of them ever mentioned the water pump.

Why ain't we ridin'?
