More than likely it is coming from above at the plastic Y pipe in the cooling lines. If your lucky the clamp is loose. If you have a pinhole leak in the plastic Y piece, well then you headed for trouble. If the hole is in the plastic piece then you need to clean your entire cooling system out because you have melted the plastic and its circulating and wrapping up in your impeller. Of course this can snowball into major failure.

i think youre talking about the weep hole and if there is coolant coming out of it then you have blown gasket. maybe not completly blown but worn out.

Thanks for everyones help.I pressurized the coolent system and all is good.The weep hole is on the cylinder head ,not the cylinder itself. I removed the coil stick and found a little moist water in side.I blew shop air thru the hole and it comes out in spark plug tube,this weep hole on the head must be a drain hole for the spark plug tube.I must of got water in there when i washed the bike.thank god it is nothing big.thanks again for everyones help. :thumbsup:

The new 07 Y will fit the 06. I haven't been able to get the new part number yet. As soon as you get a chance BUY IT!
