Question ?? white stuff ??

Hey guys, my 09 LT has just over 1300 mi. Last week I noticed what looked like a drop of White Out on the engine below the air cleaner, I scraped it off with my fingernail and forgot about it. Tonight after a short cruise I noticed more on the other side of engine and on the front cylinder fins. The stuff on the fins looks like smeared white paint. After cooling, I could scrape it off easily, again it reminded me of dried White Out. Any idea what this stuff is, where it's coming from and do you think it's a warranty issue? TIA.

I had the exact same experience. It's anti-freeze. Mine was caused by a hose clamp not being tight enough. I took the cover off the left side and loosened the clamp on the hose that enters between the cylinders, then re tightened it. Problem gone.

My biggest fear is when I die, my wife will sell all my guitars for what I told her I paid for them.
