Both my RC's have had issues with minor leaks, but it was a simple tightening of the hose clamps. My SP2 never leaked in NC, but dripped a little when I moved to UT.
I would probably just try tightening before replacing.
Not sure if coolant will cause a problem, but don't think it will...not like brake/clutch fluid (ruins paint on plastics)
Refill coolant through radiator first...run the bike for a bit, then blip the throttle a few times. Shut off bike and air bubbles will clear. Fill, then cover...after that add to the reserve reservoir. I believe that was what the service manual states.
2001 SP1 (sold)
2004 SP2 (properly stored)
2012 Ruckus (stolen)
2015 Grom (under construction)
Weyrauch pronounced (Y Rock)...Rock for short.
