well i went out this morning after finally gettin the correct oil filter and changing the oil late last night. when i arrived at the TLR i noticed a small puddle of coolant on the floor right under the left side

so i took the battery out and battery box off to give myself a better view and could follow it as far as you see here

not sure if its leaking right from the spot you see the green drop hanging but thats as far as i could see.....i have never had the bike in sooo many pieces :banghead

Mine was leaking at one time and it ended up being the upper radiator hose. It was loose but the fluid was running down the radiator making look like it was leaking else where. I tightened the clamps and haven't had an issue yet.

If its the hoses at the thermastat, you will have to take the fuel rail off to get to it.

The hose that was leaking on mine was the large supply house from the radiator to the thermostat. I was able to get at it with a screwdriver too. Couple of turns and the leak went away.
