Little worried

I have a new bike with about 150 miles on it. I rode it into work this morning (first warm day we've had since picking up the bike) and parked it. When I came out about 4 hours later I noticed a small puddle of what looked to be coolant. It was dripping from one of the two hoses that came exit the bike at the bottom center of the lower cowl. This is NOT the tube that looks like the overflow tube from the radiator.

I took it to the dealer since I neded an inspection sticker anyway and asked them about it. They checked to coolant level and it was a little bit low. They topped it off and didn't really have any useful information as to why it may have been doing that. I'll keep my eye on it to see if it continues to do so, but does anyone know why it may be doing this?

hmmm, i would look over your bike for any small scratches. what might have happened is someone bumped it and it fell over causing the coolent to overflow like you said.

Definitely hasn't been tipped over. It's kept in a storage area and I can see the bike from my window at work. If it was overflow, I would have also thought that the fluid would have come out the other tube attached to the nozzle of the radiator.

When I first rode my Bike a few times in the city and such I noticed it would get hot at stop lights and such and coolant would leak out from the hose when I ride becuase when I got home I could notice the coolant was a bit low and I could see trails of dried coolant on the bottom cowl being forced back by wind. Doesn't happen anymore... However with yours I'm not too sure about, hopefully it ain't anything to worry about and ur juss causing unecessary stress. Keep an eye on ur coolant level and temp reading for the next few hundred miles or so.

I think that's it. I think it was because it was the first time the coolant system was stressed because it was hot out. There may have been a bubble in the system that got flushed out. The level was topped off and I haven't seen any other issues. I'll just keep my eye on it.
