    HELP! Coolant leak near radiator

    by OTGreen » Tue Jun 26, 2018 7:52 am

    Hi guys,

    New to the forum here (and a new CRF250L owner) hoping to gain some knowledge on what might be causing my bike to overheat.

    I laid it down last week on its left side, where the radiator is, really not hard at all though, but in a rocky area. Noticed some coolant leakage but brushed it off when I was done riding. Went to ride last night and after 5 minutes going up the mountain the dash showed a high temperature light on the dash. I looked down and noticed blue coolant on the bottom of the radiator only, specifically coming from the left side of the radiator, right where impact would have been when I dropped the bike. Not dripping, but slowly oozing around the bottom of the radiator. Noticed some sluggish acceleration too (hoping these symptoms help).

    In the photo, I've circled exactly where I am seeing the coolant.

    What do you all think is the cause? Did I crack the radiator? I looked for a hose leak and didnt really see one. Any other ideas?

    All information and help would be much appreciated!
