Hi, I'm a new member. Found this site when looking for a fix to my problem. I just changed the antifreeze in my 2006 GL1800 and now it's smoking when the fan kicks on after I've run it for a while. I also checked the fluid level and it shows that it's full. Any suggestions?

Is it smoking from the exhaust or around the engine. I would guess that you spilled some antifreeze and once the engine heats up it will smoke until the engine burns it off.

Pretty new bike for smoke from tailpipe.

Thanks for the fast response! I thought that may be it but wanted to check with others to be sure.

Do you have the radiator cap on correctly and is the overflow tube still connected?

I freaked out when I put anti freeze back into my radiator after a water pump change. Steam emitted from the radiator for quite a while when the engine warmed up. All it was....anti freeze got into the fins on the radiator and it took that long to burn off.
