    Haven't got a clue why it's done that link ! ...if it is the oil cooler that's the problem there's plenty on eBay but it is probably leaking from higher up and dripping off the oil cooler you need to get the cooling system pressure tested

    Thanks, both, I'm sure it won't be much, maybe I caught a hose when I was dismantling fiddling and as I have said the leak of water is finding the lowest point to drop from. i seriously doubt that there's water in the oil cooler. It was watery nd also blue in colour (antifreeze) so im not too worried.....yet! JonB

    That sounds more like it I would run the bike up to temp and have a good look around with a torch

    I'd have thought it should be a fairly simple job for them to fix, without too much dismantling - just a seal, I'd guess. But get them to check that no water has got into the oil, and ask them to change it (the oil) if there's any doubt.

    Is it still under Yamaha warranty? If so they shouldn't quibble, as they'll get paid for it. If it's a dealer warranty and they won't play ball, get straight on to Yamaha, in UK at first, if no dice, in Holland. Don't let them mess you around.

    One reason I'm favouring Kawasaki these days (are you listening, Mr Yamaha?) is that they do a good deal on extending their warranty to 4 years. And it is their own warranty, not farmed off to an insurance company who will find some obscure exclusion clause to fight every claim.
    Well I took it down to them (gently) as she was getting hot fairly quickly, turns out where the coolant goes in n around the oil cooler the joints have corroded and have begun to leak. Was expecting a battle from the dealer but after looking around the showroom for a 2nd hand one to take off ano bike he failed and they have ordered a new one which will be fitted once recieved. They have also lent me a MT07 on a 68 plate which seems so small in comparison. Seems fun to ride but not what I want in a bike. Hopefully won’t be too long but at least it’s going to be done under warranty (hopefully!!!)

    Regards

    There have been a couple of cases with damaged/corroded oil coolers. They catch all the crap from the front wheel
