I discovered a nickle sized water puddle under the bike that was coolant. The wet area in the skid plate indicates the coolant came from a small hose on the right side of the engine forward of the water pump. A quick search indicates this hose might drain a cavity that the pump would leak water to if the seal was leaking. It also indicates that an occasional small leak is normal or okay. I'm just looking for confirmation that this is normal, or that I have a problem. '06 Vee with 33K miles.
