Oil Leak From My Radiator?
Sorry guys, this should have been posted under the Engine/Exhaust/Cooling heading...
Hey guys, I need some help diagnosing a leak. I'm not a mechanic but I'm very handy and I work on my bike and car quite a bit. Over the last week or so when I park my bike I've noticed a clean, oily fluid leaking from the bottom left part of the radiator, just above the fan switch but on the front of the radiator grill where the shroud just turns solid. It's weird because there's no oil coming from the back of the shroud at a lower point. I have the bike on the side stand, but I've also noticed the leak in the same place when I stop but before I get off the bike, while the bike is level.
The fluid is not green like my coolant, and it does look like clean oil. There seems to be a fair amount of leakage, more than a few drops each time, but my oil level is still full.
Any idea on where it's coming from?
HELP!!! And thanks in advance...
