Just remember, The stuff PLUGS holes.

With this in mind, It will ALSO plug your thermostat and radiator cores in time.

You are better off tearing into it instead and finding the hole. I hate seeing warped heads from high heat (which may happen) caused by a Plugged$3 thermostat on a $15,000 bike due to a shortcut or simple fix.

Just my .02 Cents

Wouldnt want to see your bike on the side of the road.

might just be a worn out cap too

Mine was worn and leaked down the motor and dripped off the left side under the heated pressure, Plus the overflow hose leaked too. New cap and leak gone.

Start looking there first, Radiator caps have rubber under them that breakdown with heat and fuel related products.

Its true even on the older wings.

Like when the shop or Previous owner put them on in a way its impossible to reach whil the body parts are on and the tool box housinghas to come off so you can tighten or loosen the overflow hose to the radiator cap.

Because someone put it on backwards ( Tention head towards cooling fan) pointed inwards. That burned my backside a little because I found it leaked there only after already removing and replacing it minutes before.
