After finding radiator steam from the right side of my bike, I stripped off as much coverning as I could find and I believe the leak may becoming from the thermo valve. How can you test the valve to determine this?What would I expect if the valve is gone bad?

no actually the thermo valve. It is an inline valve found on the right hand side of the engine behind the spark plugs. the valve is connected to a small diameter rad hose that runs back from a tee from the thermostat and the right radiator. each time I check after I run and let the bike cool, I have a small noticable amount of rad fluid sitting on below this thermo valve. I can easily change most of the smaller hoses but I wouldlike to get the valve check to make sure it is not malfunctioning.
