Welcome to the forum.
Is the bike still under warranty?
If not, I would start with your radiator cap. It's unusual that a bike that young would have a buggered cap, but it is the first point to go to if you are overflowing.
If it is still under warranty take it back to the dealer.

I'll give the dealer a call. This isn't just a reaction from riding in the cold?

Welcome to the forum.

Just as DW said I'd go with your warranty. Coolant is one thing, but oil leaking on a new bike not acceptable.

I topped off the radiator. The cap was not on well. I can ride it no problem, but when I stop for 20 seconds it will bubble over. I start to move and it stops immediately.

I don't think the fan is going on.

Is this a usa or euro spec bike?

I'll bet Baja will see this and he'll have squared away with a quickness.

Thanks for the welcome.

I bought the bike in the US.

I'm having an overheating issue. I think it's just the fan is not turning on. It's under warranty, but I wanted to see if I could fix it. I want to ride this weekend not bring it into the shop.
