It has been my experience that the coolant system will find a level that it wants. The coolant expands some when it is hot and very full radiators will ship out the extra coolant through the overflow tube. It is possible that you have some other unlying issue, but if you ride it regular and can always see coolant in the radiators, i wold think that you were fine. If you have to put in 2 cups and 2 cups always come out, it may be that it wants to run 2 cups below very full. Maybe time for a new cap?
