New WR426 Owner. Question...

5 posts in this topic

I recently bought a 2001 wr426f. After a few short rides, I noticed that coolant was leaking through a hose that ran down through the swing arm near the rear shock. Is this an overflow of some sort? I don't think that the bike was running hot, because it would leak out after short rides. Is this normal. Please help me out as I am new to the dirt biking world. Thanks in advance.

Is the coolant reservoir under the rear fender on the left Full of coolant? Is the reservoir intact?

Yes, the coolant resevoir is full and it is intact. However, I did notice very small drip coming from near the resevoir cap running down the resevoir.

If there was enough coolant for it to expand up to the cap then it is too full. Lower it to the full mark or even lower with the engine COLD.
