Just got back from a little spin. I'd say 30-40 minutes or so long. I shut my bike off and 5-10 minutes later there was a small puddle (2-3 in diameter) under the main drain hose. This is pretty much the norm except for this time the puddle looked like a loogi that was ran through a blender. Kinda whipped and foamy lookin. Any thoughts???? Should I trip?? Thanks in advance.

The hose comes out of the top of the valve cover. Whichever one that is. Sorry, I'm not really well coursed in the terminology.:applause:

Yeah, that's the crankcase vent. Normal for some amount of condensation to be coming out of that hose. What does your coolant look like after it's cooled down? Is there an oil film on the top of the coolant? Is the level lower than usual? Is your engine oil overfull or milky after it is ran? If so, you could have issues. Could possibly be a head gasket.....

First thing I would personally do is pressure test your cooling system and see if it will hold max. pressure. Let it sit for 15 minutes and see what it does. If the coolant level drops and the oil level increases you have issues...

It's probably nothing...Just keep an eye on your fluids
