Hey guys got a little problem here I went riding this weekend after the first ride I checked my coolant and it was really low, I have a motion pro overflow bottle and it was full, So I went and got a new rad cap and checked oil to make sure there was no coolant fluid there it was clean, put new rad cap in and went for a ride same thing again coolant keeps coming out of overflow hose. Anyone knows what would cause this? Any help would be appreciated in what should I do. Oh by the way is a yz400f 98.

How long does it take for coolant to be pushed out the tube?

Sounds like a head gasket.

Yup, that's how my 444 acted when it blew a head gasket between the water jacket and cylinder.
