    Finding coolant leaks?

    I have some sort of leak somewhere in my cooling system. only seems to spit out a bit while racing though. The res will never stay full, though i can't find any leaks in that or the hoses connected to it. All the hoses that i was able to check were full of liquid but after a race or ride I can always smell a little coolant, and usually have just enough in the belly pan to make it look a little wet or sometimes an extra couple drops. I've tried to run the bike and look for any leaks but I can't seem to find anything, i'm guessing it needs more pressure from the pump to squirt? Any tips on finding it?

    It's all water under the bridge, and we do enter the next round-robin. Am I wrong?

    Heres a condom. I figured since youre acting like a dick, you should dress like one too.

    Look harder? Maybe when you're sober?

    Finding coolant leaks?

    If the pressure test doesn't show the leak you can also get a dye kit with a black light at the auto parts store. Good Luck...
