Help with 06cbr600rr

I just bought an 06 cbr600rr. It has 13,416 miles on it. I just got it home and it has antifreeze all on the underside of the fairing. The bike runs fine. No power loss. It was wrecked last year and the fan stopped working I guess. It’s been sitting. Don’t even know where to start with it. It’s getting hot but only at stop signs. No white smoke unless it’s started and colder out. Just trying to make sure the head gasket isn’t blown.

I'm not an authority but I have an '05 and I am a solid mechanic, maybe I can help a little. Check the coolant level, and consider changing the coolant once you determine whether or not you have any leaks.

What is your operating temperature in degrees Fahrenheit at cruising speed... normal for me is 177F. Temperature will rise considerably at stoplights, that is normal. Fan should kick in at 220F.

You say you have coolant on the fairings. You have to find the source. Inspect the overflow tank. Inspect the radiator. Check the hoses, including the overflow. If the source is not obvious, put a pressure test on it.
