Purchased the bike not long ago and when it gets warmed up the coolant starts coming out of the breather hose. And makes a puddle under the bike I have only let the bike run long enough to make a small puddle cause I'm not sure if I have a bigger problem at work here any help would be awesome.

This bike needs to be moving it don't like to stand still and idling for a long time if you top off the coolant it going to spit some out when cool if you take off the radiator cap seeing the top of the cooling fins is normal.

These bikes were never made to be sitting still when running if you want a bike that you can sit still while running should got an air cooled XR even those you should not sit still too long.

The air while the bike is moving cools the motor.

The coolant level is pretty high I do know that. But it will do that in a matter of two minutes of running? And I have heard that engine I've can help with that?

2 Minutes idling is way to long. Fire it up and keep checking the temperature of the rads, when they get warm your good to go.
