Hello Stromfellows,

I noticed some leakage at the right side of the engine.
I think it is from the water pump and may be oil, but not sure.

Did any of you have seen the same?
Shall I worry about it?

I don't want to wash the bike so the dealer can have a look on it.
It is something I didn't get used to meet with on my previous Hondas. :evil:

(don't mind about the oil level shown, the bike was on side stand)

Check this bolt first before condeming the water pump, make sure it's snug. There have been several instances with this not tight enough to seal. What ever you do, don't remove it. It relates to the cam chain tensioner and if not done properly, you can end up with a real problem.

Looks like radiator fluid with road grime. I had a drip on my 1000 until I tightened all the hose clamps. Problem solved.

A good idea is to check all the cooling system fittings and snug them up a touch. This is part of the Pre-delivery inspection process in the auto industry. Should be for bikes too, maybe it is. Checked my fittings at 3000 kms and snugged them.
