Water leaking pretty good

2 posts in this topic

I have found recently that my radiator needs at least a 16oz gatorade bottle full of water after an hour of riding. Luckily I have some water and coolant handy when I take a break. Why would water be coming out so much from the overflow tube during a ride? Is it common? I know that it would probably be the most hot when idleing or going slow (which isnt really possible on a 450 :thumbsup: ) The other day I came to a stop and it was pouring out like a steam engine train! I know it isn't leaking elsewhere because I just replaced the shaft and seals, could it be the radiator cap? Any ideas would be great

I would check the radiator cap but most likely you have a blown head gasket.
