Coolant Leak. Any problematic areas?

Hey RR!

My buddy is downed his 06 rr and we've got it pretty much back together except for this major coolant leak. We cant seem to find it.

The location looks like it's under the air box, but comparing his bike to mine, we cant see anything that would cause a leak. Any problematic areas we should check?

Check for damage around the throttle bodies.

You will probably have to pull the bike apart again to fix it anyway so why not pull it apart to find the problem...

Sounds like the upper water pump hose.
You're probably gonna have to remove some fairings and lift the tank to get to it. I would remove them just to check all of the clamps/hoses.

It's our job to keep them upright, but we are only men.
