It seems I have a coolant leak on my 2019 SDR.... I can not even see where the leak comes from....
Sure, it happened under pressure during a hot day, riding... "spirited"!! I'll check the washer.I had a leak in exactly the same spot after refreshing mine but reusing the crush washer. Replaced it with a metal washer (and wrapping the thread in teflon) I got from a parts shop for a dime. Never leaked again.
Judging by the spray and distance, yours seems to have found a leak under pressure at the drain plug and looks to be the same problem. Probably looks more dramatic than it is.
Yeah that's either from the drain bolt, coming out the end of the hose from the clamp not being secured proper, or a tiny fissure in the water pump cover. Either are easy to fixSure, it happened under pressure during a hot day, riding... "spirited"!! I'll check the washer.
The dealer called and offered me a even swap for a new 2021 Blue/Orange SDR.... and then I woke up finding my coffee cold....
First thing I checked was the hose - it was 100%. I guess it may be the washer... hope so. Bike is still under guarantee. Dealer said they will look into it. Nothing a big hammer cant fix!Yeah that's either from the drain bolt, coming out the end of the hose from the clamp not being secured proper, or a tiny fissure in the water pump cover.

LOL... same here!!I'm pretty sure it's the washer, because the drain plug has wear marks on it, indicating it's been loosened at least once. Maybe I'm just seeing things - and that's a reasonable assumption because I'm just a wide-eyed almost-competent home mechanic who on one occasion is able to chop an onion into a hundred pieces one-handed while drinking beer but bangs his shoulder in the doorpost moments later.
