stew said:Just got the bike back and now have a better idea as to what was leaking. Under the gas tank is a coolant pipe that runs down between the "V" of the cylinders, it has o-rings on both sides of it and it was the pipe that was cracked. The dealer said that they have had several of them on this type of bike but once they are fixed he has not seen one come back for the same thing.
Is this part of the overflow line that goes to the plastic (coolant) tank on the right side?VIPER66 said:UPDATE: GOT IT BACK! Yup, it was the VERY SAME thing the OP had. An O-Ring over the head that seals a coolant line to an adaptor was faulty. Tyhe manager said that they are "seeing a few more of these rings go bad". Nothing to get in a "huff over" though. He also said the leak itself is usually a fine mist coming from the lip area. But it is advisable to have it fixed when/if it shows signs of leakage. So NOMAD owners, keep you eyes open for this.

trikebubble said:I've had coolant leaks on both the MeanStreak and Vulcan 2000. I n both cases it was the result of loose hose clamps. Both times the clamp was located up under the tank between the cylinders. I decided to replace the hose clamps in question, tighten them properly and have not had a problem since.
