Got the big girl out for the first ride in about three weeks yesterday, and cut it short after only about ten miles, when I noticed coolant leaking from several places on the rear jug. (left side bottom of head where it meets crankcase, top of head around "support rod" bolt) I immediately turned for home, got it parked. I haven't torn anything down yet, but figured I'd pick everyone's brains before I start taking her apart.

It's not uncommon for them to leak at the hose connections. The hose clamps need to be tightened up. I got to work one day to a mess like that

It turned out to be a double issue. ALL of the hose clamps were loose, and it was leaking from the connector between the jugs...plus my fan had stopped working. new thermal switch, tested relays as per manual, still wouldn't come on. Finally gave up and wired in a manual switch to turn on when riding.
