My default technique is to clean all the liquid and grease off the motor and then run it for a few mins. Then check around to see if you see any new wet spots. It may take over night or anything to drip out and be really visible but you want to run the motor for a bit to build the pressure up so it forces coolant out of the crack or hole. I would guess the leak is going to be on the radiator some where. Possibly the water pump seal, a delivery or return hose, or god forbib its your head gasket (but the motor wouldnt run right with low compression and you would be seeing grey and blue smoke). Try that out and let us know what you find.

If you suspect a leak in the coolant system you need to do a compression test on the radiator to find it. Also check all of your hoses and clamps especially the aluminium pipe on the left side.

yah so i figured it out. when i took off the left side fairing...had a hard time coz some of the bolts were stripped on the top part from the low side fall. but when i finally got it off i saw that the hose that goes back to the radiator, the aluminum part was smashed. pretty much letting no flow back to the radiator. any suggestions guys
