sometimes when I'm riding my bike there is hot air coming from either side of the bike. normally it's at lower speeds, but when I'm wearing my boots I can't feel anything it's normal for that to happen. by the way, that silicone spray you used..... is most likely the reason you saw smoke, I sometimes accidentally over spray some wd-40 on the headers/radiator and it smokes for a few minutes after the bikes on, but it burns right off, so I doubt you're leaking coolant. you would probably find the source by now if you were. I remember with my first street bike that happened (1983 nighthawk 750) when I was 16 and I'm like "damn it, what the hell is that". you live and learn.
I did just fill up the radiator on the rr and noticed that one of my clamps leading to the left side siphon hose was loose. tightened her up and it's all good.
by the way almost everyone on this forum unless they don't care or are squids etc, will NEVER stop informing other riders to wear there gear. this is a good thing. whatever temp it is wear it! or don't ride. you'll be glad you did.
