CR85 radiator steaming

Recommended Posts

Bike was bought non-running and I have just gotten it back together. (I'll do another thread with pics on that as soon as it stops raining here!) All seems fine except after running for a few minutes wispy smoke/steam rises from the radiator area. I let it run with the cap off for a bit and it didn't do it, but a minute after putting the cap on it appeared again. I can't see a leak anywhere, but the steam has a coolant smell so I'm thinking maybe there is a pinhole in the radiator and with the cap on there is enough pressure to force the leak? Any other thoughts?
