|lance328||Are you filling the radiator fill on the neck in front of the fuel tank or just the overflow bottle?|

yeah. this is my very first bike. im pretty excited!
as for whats going on with my bike right now, i'm not. so i now know that the leak is the coolant. the coolant was all empty, so i bought some and refilled it to see if and where it would leak. it leaks while im riding and a little for a little bit after. i took it for a little ride and i noticed my engine was overheating. so i went home and turned off my bike, and it was steaming/smoking (not really sure which one) under my bike. and i could hear it making an odd noise, so i opened the coolant cap and the coolant looked almost like it was boiling. now, i'm no mechanic, but i know this is really bad. what should i do? or not do?
thanks for helping me thus far, i really appreciate it!

Crossbred, (really? I won't ask...)
Welcome to the group.
Do you have any pics of your new bike, and is this your first bike?

|crossbred||yeah, thats the one. its the coolant tank. the line is a rubber tube coming out of the top. someone at a motorcycle shop said its probably the overflow too. wow, haha, im really glad i didn't put oil in there either! thanks!|

Oil tank???? The oil is in the engine.
Are you referring to the tank on the lower right side of the bike, behind a black (or sometimes chrome) cover, with a cap on top of it?
That's the coolant overflow tank. Hope you didn't put oil in there!!!

|antiq||It's likely a vent line. Post up a picture and we'll get it figured out.|

Confused which line you are speaking of, give a better description, is it rubber tubeing, a metal line, or what, and exactly where is it coming from (top of the oil container?????) don't understand where that would be...
something is not right here, and someone here can help, may not be a problem at all though...
Have a good one...Old Dog...
