Coolant leak, only happened once... overflow?
I have a 2000 929RR with 25k miles...and Ive never seen my bike over 223 degrees here in FL while sitting, usually 175-180 riding..
About a week ago it appeared that the coolant res was low so I filled her all the way up. I have never actually heard the fan running as I turned the bike off, but I did today... and as I walked away, i noticed a little coolant on the ground underneath. (3"x4" spot maybe) I let the bike run again at idle, got up to 223, and shot back down to 218ish and hovered around there, but no more coolant on the ground. Maybe Im paranoid, but Im not gonna wanna ride it if its leaking coolant, but is it possible I overfilled it and it came out the overflow today as the t-stat opened? (if there is even a overflow, I dont know?). It only happened that one time and I havent gotten it to do it again since then...thanks!!
