Are you sure that it's from the overflow? That tube ends in the same general area where a few possible leak points are located. Double check. You might have a drop or two fall from the tube after the bike is loaded up, but there is no reason for it to lose coolant out of the overflow more than 5 minutes after it's shut off. Check the impeller shaft leak port on the bottom of the engine cover just behind the water pump.

Hint: Clean coolant trails can be hard to trace on an aluminum surface. Dust the area with baby powder and the trails will stand right out.

I would check the cap as well!If its not to full and its leaking while its being shook around it must be a problem with the cap!!!
