Green fluid comes from only one place ( Radiator )
so check your radiator cap , hoses and the plastic resevoir
bottle which might have gotten punctured form road debris

i agree, check the coolant resevoir on the right side of the bike behind the mid fairing. could have had a rock shoot up in there and crack it or punch a small hole in it

For the record, the CBR is a shared Sump system, which means that there is no "transmission fluid" per say. The oil is shared between the motor AND transmission.

Ask a woman the same question, and she'll tell you one of three things:

1. I'm not a man so i don't have to know!
2. I never took an automotives class, so i never bothered to learn!
3. My mechanic takes care of all that!

in short, some people never really had an opertunity to learn.

My GF never had to pump her own gas until she was 20 and didn't know how. (She grew up in Jers)

Whatever you do find the leak before you ride the bike again. Coolant on the rear tire can spell disaster. Check all of your hoses and the water pump drain bolts right next to the front sprocket cover. Make sure you didn't loosen the wrong bolt by mistake.

Aren't there a few states that don't allow self serve? I think I remember hearing something like that.

Oregon does full service to promote jobs...

I had a loose hose clamp on my o3. It was on the top of the radiator.

I had some splish splash (ya im calling it that) near my left peg. where its flat black there. of some greenish type fluid. I think it came from the hoses right in front of it but i grabed a wrench and tightened them up. Pretty sure it went away.

just make sure all the hose clamps are on tight.
