How much is it leaking? I wouldn't think having your back tire constantly running through leaking coolant would be too good safety-wise. And while you are not having any overheating problems now, cooling systems like these are meant to operate under pressure. A leak in the system compromises that and eventually could lead to your bike overheating.

its not leaking too bad, and doesnt leak all the time... its leaking at the bottom left corner, i know under racing conditions as long as you keep moving around the track you wont go above 180 degrees... traffic might be a concern though.

Manny you need to get that fixed ASAP! Check all your hoses and pressure test the radiator to find the problem. You don't want to get stranded somewhere do you? If you need another pair of hands/eyes to help out give me a call. I'll be around this weekend.
