First find the leak. Don't put any kind of stop leak in it, it will ruin the water pump seal. And don't use DexCool. I've seen a lot of GM car engines destroyed by it. I use Maxima Coolanol. It's green glycol specifically for motorcycles, without silicates. I also tried Engine Ice. It works, but I prefer glycol. With Engine Ice, it takes longer for the engine to warm up in the morning, then when you park it, it cools down faster than glycol, requiring the engine to be warmed up again. But during regular riding, the engine runs just as hot as it does with glycol.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
