HELP coolant leak

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I'm new to riding! Was going to buy a brand new bike, but thinking about it.. Knowing that i'm new and I will be taking spills I went and purchased a used 2001 Kx250!! SADLY, it's started to leak coolant on me :( It appears to be coming out of the top end of the engine. Right at the top, and only when it is running and pressure builds up. Any suggestions? Or just bring it in to the shop?

Are you sure the radiator cap is holding pressure?  The coolant does have a right-angled connection at the top of the engine head (is that where it is leaking?), possible blockage there, torn hose there, bad hose clamp, ot worn gasket at that connection fitting.
