I gotten into a small crash and My bike started leaking coolant. I took of the fairings to see what is going on. The coolant was leaking from the left side hose. I tighten the clamps and it doesn't seem to leak anymore but my radiator still have “wet lines” from the outside( I added the pics). I am really hoping this isn't a major issue where I need to replace the radiator😕 I am hoping coolant hasn't dried because of that it is still wet. I haven't brought my baby to the garage because I do not have the time and cant ride her since I sprained my ankle.

(The blue circled radiator picture is a day after tightening the hose clams)

Any help would be appreciated

pics small.

check coolant level at rad fill cap, if needed refill..can't refill radiator from o'flow bottle at bottom of lower cowlings.

search OTF for proper rad fill and air purge procedure.

get all air bubbles out, this takes several heat cycles.

On stands, start bike warm to 180f+ and check for leaks in all areas of concern.

clean all bike, leave over newspapers for a day, check for drips on paper......
