Question Red Fluid Leaking

I noticed some red fluid leaking from one of the small hoses on the left side of the Bike near the kickstand after I put the Bike on the rear stand... What is this fluid? I don't think its the transmission fluid since most Bike trannys use the same oil as the engine.

have you had anyone work on your bike but you?

Never argue with stupid people. They will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience
Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

What color is your coolant?
Most likely your coolant.
Are you running wetter water?


unless they made red color gas.

There's two tubes on the left side of the bike near the kickstand.

Ones for your coolant overflow and the other is your gas overflow.

My Coolant is green, and no I'm not running watter water... BUT, I did just put in some fuel stabilizer in my tank which was red.

Too late, already wiped it up along with some WD40 that got mixed in with it as I was lubing and greesing everything down for Winter and just didn an oil change on it. I'm pretty sure it was the Fuel Stabilizer, thanks for your help LonelyRR.

If you spilled some of the stabilizer on the rim of the gas fill, one of the tubes originates from there and that is most likely what it is.

That's what it sounds like to me. You probably spilled some in the rim and didn't realize it. The only other thing I can think of is fork oil. Keep a close eye on it for the next few days of riding.

Actually I did spill it on the rim and I'm pretty sure that's what it is, I don't think its fork oil nor brake fluid and I didn't change my air filter. I won't be riding till next spring anyhow. Thnx guys.

+1 It was the stabilizer most likely, no worries.

On another note, it's so sad to here that word (stabilizer) already. Damn I wish I could ride all year - not trying to thread jack, just making a comment.

Well thnx for not thinking as positive as others. I'm sticking with the Stabilizer theory, I have less than 400km on the Bike, doubt anything serious is wrong with the forks or fork fluids.
