Hello! I picked up my bike today and rode it home about 110 miles through mountain roads transitioning speeds under 5600rpm. When I got home I noticed white residue on my radiator (see pic) and a little hardened residue from heat on the radiator cap center. No over heating indicator or radiator smell; all seems fine, but I am curious if something is up. I brought it by my local Yamaha and he thought it may be something from the factory because he said it shouldn't have leaked since there's an overflow. Since there's some white hardened coolant residue on the radiator cap AND the same in the shown spots on the radiator, but it's running fine.. I'm lost. Does everyone who buys a new FZ09 have white crap on there nice black radiator? Lol. The guy at my local Yamaha said that after it cools off to stand it up and see if the overflow is slightly above the LOW line. Anybody else have any ideas?
